PANCHO AND LEFTY by Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard. Nelson and Haggard, two of the titans of country music, had a No. 1 hit in 1983 with this Townes Van Zandt song. There’s a few things I like about this one. First of all, Willie Nelson is flat-out cool. Secondly, Haggard’s first name is Merle, and thirdly, the guy who wrote it is named Townes. Seriously, who names kids Merle and Townes?
You’d think maybe Willie could afford a new guitar by this point: Pancho and Lefty
