Billy Joe Shaver, who wrote “Old Five and Dimer’s Like Me” died today at the age of 81.

Shaver mostly is known for writing the “outlaw” songs of that genre during the 1970s. He wrote or co-wrote a lot of Waylon Jennings songs.


But perhaps the greatest tribute to his skills, is that Tom T. Hall recorded what I believe is the definitive version of “Old Five and Dimer’s Like Me” in 1973.




When you can write a Tom T. Hall classic, you’ve been there.

So long, Billy Jo Shaver.

You were all you intended to be.
