He's one of the greatest modern day troubadours. Now, commonly called a balladeer: he tells a story to music. Beyond outstandingl y excellent.

yermom32.... t h e song is a ballad! It is supposed to sound somewhat like a poem! It is a story told in verse with rhyme.

I would like to point out that I do not like this song because it is very confusing and sounds like a poem

Marty Robbins was a genius. His influence can be heard in the works of Elvis, the Beatles, and so many more. What a voice - and so much passion.

This song holds a special place in my heart. My dad would play this whenever he picked up his guitar. A lot of good memories in this song. He passed a year ago tomorrow. Love you, Dad!
