RIP Jerry Jeff Walker

Jerry Jeff Walker (Mr. Bojangles) has passed away.

David Bromberg:

“Jerry Jeff was in the county jail. He had been with the wrong woman, in the wrong place, at the wrong time…and her husband, the sheriff…”


Damn, this has been a tough year for artists in my library.

I was just listening to Todd Snider while working in my shop and he was doing his intro to The Ballad of the Devil’s Backbone Tavern where he talks about how Jerry Jeff Walker was his inspiration.

“His dog up and died, up and died…after twenty years, he still grieves.”

For sure.


Tough year. He might be my favourite Outlaw Country singer, and two of his very best albums are not on streaming services … another good reason for Roon!

I should buy his CDs. I still buy ~1-2 SACDs per month. It was difficult when Waylon Jennings passed away.
