“Time on the Water”…..Quote #11

“Turned on the television for a few moments this morning and there was Willie Nelson talking to Rona Barrett, the Hollywood gossip queen. So this is what things have come to while I’ve been away fishing. The beautiful people have clasped ugly old Willie to their bosoms. To them he’s real. He writes down-to-earth songs about life. All of a sudden, I had this tremendous urge to grab Willie by his ponytail and scream, “What do you know about life? You ain’t ever fished for muskies!”
