Willie and Faron

Watching a Hee-Haw rerun with Willie Nelson and Faron Young. They didn't have them do a duet of "Hello Walls" (a song Willie wrote and Faron Young recorded and made them both rich).

They did do a duet of another Willie Nelson song, "Funny How Time Slips Away".

I guess they didn't do "Hello Walls" because Willie didn't want to do a song that was initially recorded and made famous by someone else, even though he's the guy who wrote it and it's a song that paid for a lot of Willie Nelson cocaine partys at Austin's Driscoll Hotel with it's royalty checks.

All those drugs sure did age Willie though. Faron Young looked younger than Willie.
