Lyrics for 'The Year That Clayton Delaney Died' by 'Tom T Hall'
I Remember The Year That Clayton Delaney Died
They Said For The Last Two Weeks That He Suffered And Cried
It Made A Big Impression On Me, Although I Was A Barefoot Kid
They Said He Got Religion At The End And I'm Glad That He Did

Clayton Was The Best Guitar Picker In Our Town
I Thought He Was A Hero And I Used To Follow Clayton Around
I Often Wondered Why Clayton, Who Seemed So Good To Me
Never Took His Guitar And Made It Down In Tenn-o-see

Well, Daddy Said He Drank A Lot, But I Could Never Understand
I Knew He Used To Pick Up In Ohio With A Five-piece Band
Clayton Used To Tell Me, "son You Better Put That Old Guitar Away,
There Ain't No Money In It, It'll Lead You To An Early Grave."

I Guess If I'd Admit It, Clayton Taught Me How To Drink Booze
I Can See Him Half-stoned A-pickin' Out The Lovesick Blues
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

I Remember The Year That Clayton Delaney Died
Nobody Ever Knew It But I Went Out In The Woods And I Cried
Well, I Know There's A Lotta Big Preachers That Know A Lot More Than I Do
But It Could Be That The Good Lord Likes A Little Pickin' Too
Yeah, I Remember The Year That Clayton Delaney Died
