Moe Bandy

Moe, noticing my George Jones T-shirt, asked where I'd seen "the Possum" perform.  He told a couple of stories on stage about some escapades he and George went through together.

I've figured out the way to get your picture taken with someone in the music industry:  Catch them either before they get famous, or  long after their glory years.  They'll gladly pose with you.

I realize most of my readers don't have a clue who this guy is... you'd have to have been a country fan back in the 70's to know him.

Here's one of my favorite Moe Bandy songs... I don't know whether he wrote it or not, but it was one of his last records to make the charts.

TOO OLD TO DIE YOUNG

If life is like a candle bright,
Death must be the wind.
You can close your window tight
And it still comes blowing in.
So I will climb the highest hill
To watch the rising sun,
And pray that I don't feel the chill
Till I'm too old to die young.

chorus:
Let me watch my children grow
To see what they become.
Oh Lord don't let that cold wind blow
Till I'm too old to die young.

Now I have had some dear sweet friends
I thought would never die
Now all that is left of them
Is the tear drops in my eye
If I could have one wish today
And know it would be done
I would say every one can stay
'Till they're too old to die young

Hey, I know Moe Bandy... course I was one of those weird kids in High School that listened to rock AND that 'twangy country stuff' <LOL> Also, my Mom was a big country fan... which is probably why I liked it.

I remember Moe. I agree it is easy to get picture taken when they are a "has-been"
