Driving west and I decided to swing down to Avalon to pay my respects to John Hurt. It took me two days to find his grave because it's hidden in the woods of Mississippi and on a gun range. While searching, I came across an older couple and I asked them directions. They had known John. He'd was their neighbor for decades. They said he was an extremely kind man who would tip his hat to everyone he met and come over to their house durning thunder storms. I found his grave, I played him a song.

Wonderful.

I'm in Oxford Ms Monday. Where is it located? I might as well go pay my respects while I'm in the area.

@rkernell the greatnes of America is stated in the acknowledgement of such heinous crimes against humanity and to not repeat them, such as it has been done. The greatness comes from acknowledgement of humankind all as one. Together we can overcome and treat ALL men as equal and be free to prosper as a god given right. History cannot be rewritten, history has to stand as a guide to be better humans, we are human afterall, not perfect, and make mistakes as greedy men have done in the past. As humans, to be humble, and strive to be the best as we can be, and to better humankind in remembrance to the fallen who have suffered fron the greedy. We are all brothers, attached as one through our dna as humans. America is growing in our behavior to get better, to wit, the past is not forgotten, and we are better now than in the past. Unlike other countries of the world where crimes against humanity continues unchanged for thousands of years. Where the is only two classes of people, the ones in power and the victims of the trodden path. America has changed, we now acknowledge our past and stive to be better humans, thibis why we are the greatness ntion on earth.

this guy has got to be one of the best guitar players ever

todd holmes

This song is pure Americana from a world long gone. And yet as compelling as any recent news story. This blues artist is following a tradition hundreds of years old, the traveling troubadour, the only source for news in the Middle Ages.

gonzo outthere

This is still the best singing and playing of any song by one man in the history of the world

T.T. Stern

gonzo outthere ...I love his way have for 50 years. Great
