I can't help but remember the song he wrote and recorded with his wife, Rosa Lee, "Long Journey."

God's given us years of happiness here, but now we must part.
And as the angels come and call for you,
The pains of grief tug at my heart.

Oh my darling
My darling
My heart breaks as you take your long journey

An amazing song, and so rooted in home, church, family, and place. If there was ever a more rooted man of music, I don't know who it was.
