When you were dead in Firecreek, it looked real.
That was brilliant acting and it took a lot of skill.
But sadly, now you’re also dead in real life.
It has devastated your kids and your wife.
You were rich and famous but it didn’t make you become a snob.
Everything you touched turned to gold, you always did a good job.
You were Jim Lindsey, Jeff Myrtlebank and Rosco Coltrane too.
Now you’re in Heaven with Uncle Jesse, Boss Hogg and Lulu.
Dedicated to James Best (1926-2015) who died on April 6, 2015.
