He Knew When to Hold 'Em and He Knew When to Fold 'Em

I was sad to hear of the death of Country legend Kenny Rogers at the age of 81.
I wouldn't say that I was a huge fan but he bit write some terrific tunes. Mrs CC is more of a fan so there are a few of his CDs on the shelves. She showed me a particularly moving tribute from Dolly Parton.
Rest easy Kenny.
There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealing's done.

The First Edition - Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)

Kenny Rogers & the First Edition - Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town

Kenny Rogers - The Gambler


  1. I wasn't also a huge fan of him but you're right CC - he wrote a few great songs.

  2. I've put up the video of Kenny and Dolly doing 'You can't make old friends' and chatting over at my place. I have to confess that even a stony-hearted hard man like me was a bit damp-eyed by the end of it.
