This long haired redneck grieves for the loss of a good man and the sucess of really stupid violent thugs.
I know what this says about me. I think it is more telling about the crowd that thinks 50 cent is "da bomb"
I didn't know a thing about LaDoux. I know he had to cancel at the end of last year, about five months ago, when he was scheduled for the second weekend closer at the SF Grand National. Charlie Daniels ripped up his bow the weekend before. But I only heard the name, LaDoux, and that was all.
I think Garth Brooks was a fan of LeDoux; he dropped his name into one of his songs ("Much too Young to Feel This Damn Old") and I believe the two collaborated on "Whatcha Gonna Do With a Cowboy"
"A worn out tape of Chris LeDoux,
Lonely women, and bad booze,
Seem to be the only friends I've left at all"
NO! Not LaDoux!!
Lord be with the survivors...
But when my friend turned back towards me
I noticed his ol' hat brim -
Well, it was turned up in a big ol' Texas grin!
You'll ride a black tornado across the western sky,
Rope an ol' blue norther and milk it till it's dry,
Bulldog the Mississippi, pin its ears down flat,
Long before you take this cowboy's hat!"
