Summary For more than forty years, Guy Clark wrote and recorded unforgettable songs. His lyrics and melodies paint indelible portraits of the people, places, and experiences that shaped him. He has served as model, mentor, supporter, and friend to at least two generations of the world's most talented and influential singer-songwriters. In songs like "Desperados Waiting for a Train," L.A. Freeway," "She Ain't Going Nowhere," and "Texas 1947," Clark's poetic mastery has given voice to a vision of life, love, and trouble that has resonated not only with fans of Americana music, but also with the prominent artists--including Johnny Cash, Ricky Skaggs, Jerry Jeff Walker, and others--who have recorded and performed Clark's music.-- Book jacket.
