A Tale Out of Luck
by Willie Nelson, with Mike Blakely
Publication:Â September 3, 2008
A former Texas Ranger and veteran of the Texas War for Independence, Captain Hank Tomlinson has retired to live in Luck, the town he founded in the new state of Texas.Â Now the owner of the Broken Arrow Ranch, heâ€™s determined that his new Kentucky. Thoroughbred mare win the annual race, beating out his rival,Â Jack Brennan.Â But when the horse goes missing in the night, his son, Jay Blue, and cowhand Skeeter set out to bring her home.Â The boys soon find that to get-their horse back, theyâ€™ll need the help of the mysterious Jubal Hayes, a mustanger with an unusual appearance and a dark attitude.
Meanwhile, the brutal murder of a stranger leads to a bloody battle and incurs the wrath of Comanche warriors bent on revenge.Â As the Texas wild becomes more and more deadly.Â Hank must track down the boys before they get caught in the crossfire.Â But he may find the gravest danger comes from his own past.
This is one I made.Â It’s one of three fromÂ Willie’s Fourth of July Picnic in 2005, at the Stockyards in Fort Worth.Â Â It’s not a seamless production, but it does give you a feel for the picnic and the music.Â I didn’t recordÂ everyone who played; this one is Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson and Family.
Here’s the set list.Â Â Â
- Bob Dylan, I’ll be Your Baby Tonight
- Bob Dylan, some song I don’t know,
- Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, You Win Again
- Bob Dylan, Highway 61
- Bob Dylan, Shooting Star
- Willie Nelson & Family, Whiskey River
- Willie Nelson & Family, Still is Still Moving to Me
- Willie Nelson & Family, Whiskey for My Men (Beer for My Horses)
- Willie Nelson & Family, Pancho and Lefty
- Willie Nelson & Family, w/Lukas Nelson on guitar, “Flooding Down in Texas”
- Willie Nelson & Family, Mama, Don’t Let your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys
- Willie Nelson & Family, The harder they come, the harder they fall
- Willie Nelson & Family, Good Hearted Woman
