One of the most sublime songs of all time - the more so for being so simple. Thanks, Willie.

hmmmm....had a bit of a "how the HELL did BillG know" moment there.  A little while ago I looked up the Who song "Behind Blue Eyes" to see what the rating was (related to a conversation with a friend recently) and I saw this Willie song below it....well now it's playing and I'm happy to say I have it rated a 9 ;-)

He did some great shows when touring with Bob Dylan in the summers at minor league ball parks. 

Hot and sweaty, crazy crowds.

Don't listen to much country, but Willie always gets my attention!  I love his tasteful guitar playin'...

Every time I hear this song, it makes me think of when Willie walked into a small blues bar I was at while living in Tucson in the 1980s. He just walked in off the street and my friend and I had to take a double take to be sure it was who we thought it was. We walked up and told him that we were fans of his music and he thanked us.  

Then, he preceded to join the local blues band that was playing on the small stage.  Of course, one of the songs he played was "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain," and I was amazed by our luck to be in this small bar at the right time. 

In the small crowd around the stage, there was a guy that I overheard telling his friend, "Check out all these hot girls around us!"  I was like, 'Excuse me, but that is "the" Willie Nelson playing up there!'

 
get out!
was it Chicago Bar on Speedway?

I mirror your comments esp. the reference to all things twangy (although I adore much acoustic) but I agree this is simply perfection.

You and me both, brother. I used to sing this song while washing dishes at the cafe were I worked part-time to pay tuition.

Twenty years old, hardly a dime to my name, but the world was filled with music and possibilities. 

 
CHEERS NAGS!  (yuk, dishwashing is rough stuff and this is one spirit enlightening tune for diversion : )
