He died Friday from throat cancer. Most known for writing Mr. Bojangles and helping establish what eventually became the Outlaw Country music scene in Austin in the early 70s. 
So much great music from this man. He may not even make the news, but this is another great one gone.

Sad news.

I remember singing that song in music class in the early to mid '70's.
One of the first songs I was introduced to, it's a part of me.
