Gonzo Country / Townes Van Zandt / Video Tribute

The Late Great Townes Van Zandt Tribute Show

“Well I was born a rambler friends, and I intend to die that way. It could be twenty years from now,  it could be most any day. But if there ain’t no whiskey and wimen lord, behind those heavenly doors, I’m gonna take my chances down below and of that you can be sure.”
Townes Van Zandt
