    I was born at the end of the Vietnam War. I still do remember the simpler life growing up in a holler in KY. This Patriotic song was done before it was said "all the cool kids are singing them" and he is an American Icon with a forgotten message. Some here will be too young to know Merle.

    I wish a buck was still silver
    It was back when the country was strong
    Back before elvis, before veitnam war came along
    Before the beatles and yesterday
    When a man could still worked still would
    Best of the free life behind us now
    And are the good times really over for good

    I wish coke was still cola
    And a joint was a bad place to be
    It was back before nixon lied to us all on tv
    Before microwave ovens
    When a girl still cooked and still would
    Is the best of the free life behind us know
    And are the good times really over for good

    Are we rolling down hill like a snowball headed for hell
    With no kinda chance for the flag or the liberty bell
    Wish a ford and a chevy
    Would still last ten years like they should
    Is the best of the free life behind us know
    And are the good times really over for good

    Stop rolling down hill like a snowball headed for hell
    Stand up for the flag and let's all ring the liberty bell
    Let's make a ford and a chevy
    That would still last ten years like they should
    But the best of the free is still yet to come
    And the good times ain't over for good

    My favorite country singer. I was able to photograph him last time he was in Greensboro for a music magazine I work for from time to time.

    Nice shot Hunter.

    I grew up on Merle. The greatest country singer/songwriter, imo!
