Wayne Carson who wrote The Letter and Always on My Mind. He maybe wasn't so famous but some good tuneage.

I just learned something. I thought Willie Nelson wrote 'You Were Always On My Mind'.

I know!

So far all I've heard is that it was "natural causes". She was only 72 FFS. My Dad is 75 and if he dropped down dead tomorrow I'd think he was gone too soon.

Well, this bums my stone. I didn't realize she died last year on August 21st. I grew up listening to her music.



"As I was walking o'er yon hill
It was a pleasant evening
'Twas there I spied a bonny lass
Skipping barefoot through the heather

And oh but she was neatly dressed
She needed neither cap nor feather
She was the queen among them all
Skipping barefoot through the heather

Her gown, it was a bonny blue
Her petticoat, a pheasant color
And in between the stripes was seen
Shining bales of blooming heather

Says I then, "Lassie, will you go wi' me?
Will you go wi' me and leave the heather?
It's silks and satins you shall have
If you'll wi' me and leave the heather"

Says she, "Kind sir, your offer's good
It's well I ken you will deceive me
So gin I gie my love all o'er
It's better no I've never seen ye"

And oh but she was neatly dressed
She needed neither cap nor feather
She was the queen among them all
Skipping barefoot through the heather"

Inasmuch as falling asleep on the balcony during a major heatwave and then falling/being hit by stroke could be considered natural.
