Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die: Musings from the Road

Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die: Musings from the Road

In Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die, Willie Nelson muses about his greatest influences and the things that are most important to him, and celebrates the family, friends, and colleagues who have blessed his remarkable journey. Willie riffs on everything, from music to poker, Texas to Nashville, and more. He shares the outlaw wisdom he has acquired over the course of eight decades, along with favorite jokes and insights from family, bandmates, and close friends. Rare family pictures, beautiful artwork created by his son, Micah Nelson, and lyrics to classic songs punctuate these charming and poignant memories.

A road journal written in Willie Nelson’s inimitable, homespun voice and a fitting tribute to America’s greatest traveling bard, Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die—introduced by another favorite son of Texas, Kinky Friedman—is a deeply personal look into the heart and soul of a unique man and one of the greatest artists of our time, a songwriter and performer whose legacy will endure for generations to come.

    Yes, I am biased. Have been listening to Willie’s music for years. Love all those country “outlaw” guys. Read Willie’s book “The Tao of Willie” some years ago and found it to be quite inspirational—for lots of reasons.

    This new book “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die”—is a candid retrospective of “Now”– and to Willie: Now is Forever and Forever is Now. If this doesn’t make sense to you….it probably will after you read this easy to digest little tome…that includes jokes, stories, comments about Willie from his family. Amazing illustrations from his youngest son and extremely talented artist, Micah Nelson.

    Even if you are not a fan of his music….his life, his wisdom, and his gentleness make him a “folk hero of the highest order”….this lovely book loaded with wisdom does not disappoint even the most skeptical….

    Looking for a Holiday Gift….this is a good one to consider.

    This book reads like all of Willie’s songs rolled together. If you’re looking for a standard autobiography, you won’t find it here. While reading this book, it felt like I was on the bus, a part of the family, hearing their stories first hand, rolling down the highway, a song in the making. Willie has stories like no other, telling jokes one minute then talking seriously about the things that matter most to him like family, fans, Texas and the music. He waxes poetic on everything from Farm Aid, God, politics, marijuana, childhood antics, golf, poker, family, friends and other musings from A to Z. These are all homegrown stories as only Willie can spin them. After reading this book, one can see why the idea of Willie for Nobel Peace Prize is floating around. As his wife Annie says, “He has a way of seeing life that is a gift to anyone lucky enough to spend time with him” and his daughter Amy writes, “He transcends boundaries, opens hearts and unites people.” On page 159 is a collection of Willie’s pearls of wisdom. I’m not going to tell you what they are. I suggest you buy the book and start applying them in your own life because, well, this reviewer believes that Willie just makes sense!

    I have several books by and about Willie Nelson, but this one was the best. Many comments by family members and friends, and a lot of insightful information by Willie himself. He gets sort of raunchy with his language, but I’m sort of old and didn’t grow up with that sort of thing. Doesn’t dim my admiration for him, his books and especially his music, and if he writes another book I’ll buy it too. Love that man.
