I remember the year that Clayton Delaney died
D A A7
They said for the last two weeks that he suffered and cried
D A
It made a big impression on me although I was a barefoot kid
E7 A
They said he got religion at the end and I'm glad that he did

A E7 A A7
Clayton was the best guitar picker in our town
D A A7
I thought he was a hero and I used to follow Clayton around
D A
I often wondered why Clayton who seemed so good to me
E7 A
Never took his guitar and made it down in Tennessee

A E7 A A7
Well daddy said he drank a lot but I could never understand
D A A7
I knew he used to picked up in Ohio with a five piece band
D A
Clayton used to tell me son you better put that old guitar away
E7 A
Ain't no money in it it'll lead you to an early grave

A E7 A A7
I guess if I'd admit it Clayton taught me how to drink booze
D A A7
I can see him half stoned a picking out the Lovesick Blues
D A
When Clayton died I made him a promise I was gonna carry on somehow
I'd give a hundred dollars if he could only see me now

A E7 A A7
I remember the year that Clayton Delaney died
D A A7
Nobody ever knew it but I went out in the woods and I cried
D A
Well I know there's a lotta big preachers that know a lot more
than I do
E7 A
But it could be that the good Lord likes a little picking too

E7 A
Yeah I remember the year that Clayton Delaney died
