In memory of Curly Putman…

…who died Sunday.

Most folks know “Green, Green Grass of Home” as being recorded by Porter Wagoner, but that song has actually been recorded by…well, damn near everybody who had a recording career worth talking about, it seems. And I haven’t heard them all…

…but I am not sure that there was a better version of it than Merle Haggard’s.

    One of those songs I didn’t remember knowing. You. Bastard.

    HAHA! I was not actually a big fan of the PW version of that song, but Merle Haggard slammed it out of the park.

    Great song, great version.

    That album (1968’s Mama Tried) also features really great versions of Lefty Frizzell’s “Little Ole Wine Drinker Me” and Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues.”
