R.I.P. Poodie Locke, Backstage Outlaw

One of the Outlaws has left us.
Thank God, he made it here in the first place.
“There are no bad days” was his  slogan.
Poodie Locke, Willie Nelson’s stage manager of 34 years.

  1. That Very Sad Sixth Day Of May (At Poodie’s Hilltop Roadhouse)

    I’d hitchhiked to Poodie’s to play
    For a fun Wednesday night open mic
    At Poodie’s Hilltop Roadhouse on the sixth day of May
    Was where I’d heard the news that he’d died

    That was such a very sad time
    With the look in Brooks’ eyes which were glazed
    I think that he’d wanted to cry
    A quiet moment of remembrance we paid

    CHORUS:
    On that very sad sixth day of May
    A quiet moment of remembrance we paid
    At the place where there’s no bad days
    On that very sad sixth day of May

    Bridge:
    At the place where there’s no bad days
    Nobody knew exactly what to say
    Me, I just hitchhiked away
    On that very sad sixth day of May

    CHORUS
