  • "You won't see no sad and teary eyes When I get my wings, and it's my time to fly Just call my friends and tell them There's a party, come on by So just roll me up and smoke me when I die You don't stick around as long as American legend Willie Nelson has without earning a little outlaw wisdom along the way. Writing in his spare moments while crisscrossing the country on tour, Willie looks back at his long career, recalling the events and people from which he drew his most profound lessons. He takes us from his first puffs as a cotton-picking kid in Abbott, Texas, to his fateful moves to and from the Nashville country scene, to the recent 4/20 unveiling of the eight-foot-tall bronze Willie Nelson statue in Austin, Texas, musing about his greatest influences and the things that are most important to him in life. Between reminiscences is a treasure trove of lyrics from classic Nelson songs, both old and new. And of course he can't resist telling a dirty joke or two to lighten the load. ROLL ME UP AND SMOKE ME WHEN I DIE isn't just Willie's book. As one of the most iconic singer-songwriters in American history, Willie Nelson has touched millions, and none more deeply than his family, friends, and bandmates, several of whom, for the first time here, share intimate stories with the Red-Headed Stranger to put his legacy into proper perspective. Photographs of the Nelson family and friends and stunning original artwork from Willie's son, Micah Nelson round out this road journal and fitting tribute to America's greatest traveling bard."
