    In a blue funk
    He was a true national treasure. Godspeed Doc!

    I saw him at Bonnaroo back in '03 or '04. It was just him and another guy on stage, and it is still one of the top 5 sets I have ever seen. One of the best flat pickers ever!

  8. i saw him a couple of times at the Exit/In in nashville when i was going to school. (also saw Vasser Clements there as well as Browinie & Sonny and also Norman Blake...:D)

    he will be sorely missed. he was truly a phenomenal flat picker and a lot of today's wiz's owe him a debt.

    RIP, Doc.

  9. Shady Grove, my little love
    Shady Grove I say
    Shady Grove, my little love
    I'm bound to go away

    Cheeks as red a a blooming rose
    And eyes are the prettiest brown
    She's the darling of my heart
    Sweetest girl in towm


    I wish I had a big fine horse
    And corn to feed him on
    And Shady Grove to stay at home
    And feed him while I'm gone


    Went to see my Shady Grove
    She was standing in the door
    Her shoes and stockin's in her hand
    And her little bare feet on the floor


    When I was a little boy
    I wanted a Barlow knife
    And now I want little Shady Grove
    To say she'll be my wife


    A kiss form pretty little Shady Grove
    Is sweet as brandy wine
    And ther ain't no girl in this old world
    Thats's prettier than mine


    RIP Doc Watson, and thank you.
  10. Listening to a great NPR interview replay right now. RIP
