Willie Nelson

On [Country Music], produced by T Bone Burnett and due April 20 on Rounder, [Willie] Nelson delivers his distinctive, understated take on such classics as "Dark as a Dungeon," "Nobody's Fault but Mine," "My Baby's Gone" and "House of Gold."

"This is a group of songs that when they first came out, it didn't take them very long to become standards," Nelson says. "Just like 'Stardust,' 'Moonlight in Vermont,' 'All of Me' and 'Georgia' are considered standards, so are 'Dark as a Dungeon,' 'Freight Train Boogie,' 'Pistol Packin' Mama' and 'Satisfied Mind.' These are all standard songs from another field of music, but they are still the same category. They are just as good in their own way." [Reuters]

Willie Nelson will be celebrating the 4/20 release of the record with a special show on May 6th at Manhattan Center Grand Ballroom (a venue that's sort of small for him, as he has a show at Radio City scheduled for this July). The show will be "an all acoustic set of country and gospel songs". Tickets go on AmEx and Fanclub presale Wednesday at 10am. General sale starts Friday at 10am.

Willy,
I have developed a 15 KEY WORD Harmony of the Gospel that is currently being taught to adults, college students and grammer school children at church.
Each KEY WORD stands for three or four KEY events in EACH of the 15 PERIODS of the Life of Christ
Can you use these 15 KEY WORDS to COMPOSE A SONG to accompany this simple outline?
I wish to put this outline into EVERY LANGUAGE of the world and into the hands of every missionary and child in EVERY known COUNTRY and hamlet with your help!
Originally I began to teach it with a little GOSPEL TRAIN OUTLINE in Vacation Bible School classes.
It has now been been minaturized to the 14 FINGER sections of your HAND. (plus PALM)
Beginning with the PALM of your hand as #1 you have JN.1:1 "In the beginning was the WORD...." (PRE-EXISTENCE) (ZIP is 0001)
The ZIP CODES are MT.MK.LK and JN. chaptr
Move to the BASE of your THUMB for #2.
This IS the (30 YEARS) OF HIS GROWING UP.
This information is found in Mt.2,Lk.2.ZIP 2020 NOT in Mk or JN.
THE END OF YOUR THUMB IS #3.
The KEY WORD is (SEE)...."see the DOVE at His Baptism?" (ZIP (3131 )
Move to your base of first finger #4.
The KEY WORD is (C C) where Jesus CHANGED water into wine at CANA. Miracle #1
Move to the middle of your first finger.
The KEY WORD is ( N ) for Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. (ZIP is JOHN 3 )
etc.
Move to the middle of your RING FINGER.
The KEY WORD is ( FOOD ).
Here Jesus FED the 5,000 and Walked on the WATER! (zip Code 14-696) ETC. ETC. ETC.

PLEASE GIVE ME A CALL IF YOU WISH TO HELP PUT THIS BEAUTIFUL OUTLINE INTO THE HANDS OF ALL THE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD.

i AM 80 YEARS OLD AND LIVE IN A REST HOME IN DALLAS, TX.
I DON'T HAVE MUCH MORE TIME ON THIS EARTH BUT THE LITTLE TIME IS A PRECIOUS GIFT FROM GOD. I want to use it like MOSES.
Moses was 80 when HE went to work!
Send me your address and phone and email and I'll send a CD of some more of my notes I have made.
God bless you.
I can be reached at
Christian Care Center
1209 Howard Dr. Apt 48
Mesquite, TX 75150
