While growing up in Texas, country music legend Guy Clark learned his craft on a 12 dollar Mexican guitar. The first songs he learned were mostly in Spanish. Clark was raised in the town of Monahans by his Grandmother (who also ran the town hotel). In later years, Clark used his colorful life experiences as inspiration for his best songs, such as "Desperados Waiting for a Train," and "Texas 1947."
Over the decades, Clark's thoughtful, meticulous songwriting has garnered the lasting respect of fellow musicians. Numerous artists have charted with Clark-penned tunes. His songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, David Allan Coe, Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs, and many others.
Recorded live at the Harbor Stage at George Wein's Folk Festival 50 at Newport by engineers Bob Potter and Craig Adams.
