  • Well I remember the year that Clayton Delaney died
    They said for the last two weeks that he suffered and cried
    It made a big impression on me although I was a barefoot kid
    They said he got religion at the end and I'm glad that he did
    Clayton was the best guitar picker in our town
    I thought he was a hero and I used to follow Clayton around
    I often wondered why Clayton who seemed so good to me
    Never took his guitar and made it down in Tennessee
    Daddy said he drank a lot but I could never understand
    I knew he used to picked up in Ohio with a five piece band
    Clayton used to tell me son you better put that old guitar away
    There ain't no money in it it'll lead you to an early gray
    I guess if I'd admit it Clayton taught me how to drink booze
    I can see him half stoned pickin' up the Lovesick Blues
    When Clayton died I made him a promise I was gonna carry on somehow
    I'd give a hundred dollars if he could only see me now
    I remember the year that Clayton Delaney died
    Nobody ever knew it but I went out in the woods and I cried
    Well I know there's a lotta big preachers that know a lot more than I do
    But it could be that the good Lord likes a little picking too
    Yeah I remember the year that Clayton Delaney died
