Billy Joe Shaver ~ If I Give My Soul ~ Victory Album.
The band’s debut album, Brutalism, was hailed as a rage-fuelled masterpiece. The singer recalls how frustration at being a carer for his sick mum led him down a dark path – and how he learned to channel that anger.
Billy Joe Shaver (born August 16, 1939) is a Texas country music singer and songwriter. Shaver's 1973 album Old Five and Dimers Like Me is a classic in the outlaw country genre. Shaver was born in Corsicana, Texas, and raised by his mother, Victory Watson Shaver, his father Virgil having left the family before Billy Joe was born. Until he was 12, he spent a great deal of time with his grandmother in Corsicana so that his mother could work in Waco
BILLY JOE SHAVER ACTS MORE like a Baptist preacher than a man in need of salvation. Performing at Austin’s KUT-FM studios, he waves his arms around as if he were trying to explain something. He pounds his chest and kicks his leg out. He clasps his hands like a minister, throws punches like a fighter. He introduces one of his best-known songs by saying, This is a song that helped me when I was at the end of my rope. It’s called ‘I’m Just an Old Chunk of Coal (But I’m Gonna Be a Diamond Someday). After a beat of dead air, he adds, Still trying. As he sings the country shuffle, his Waco accent gets even deeper on some of the verses, hiccuping the lines: I’m gonna glow and grow ’til I’m so plu-pure-perfect. Toward the end of the set, he does a song called Live Forever and, unknown to the audience, ends the song on his knees, hands at his side, head bowed in silence.
Where I’m From Lyrics. I'm from where the hammers rung, news cameras never come You and your mans hung in every verse in your rhyme Where the grams is slung, niggas vanish every summer When the blue vans would come, we throw the work in the can and run Where the plans was to get funds and skate off the set To achieve this
