From the Back Cover:

You won't see no sad and teary eyes
When I get my wings, and it's my time to fly
Just call my friends and tell them
There's a party, come on by
So just roll me up and smoke me when I die

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: music, wives, Texas, politics, horses, religion, marijuana, children, the environment, poker, hogs, Nashville, karma, and more. He shares the outlaw wisdom he has acquired over eight decades, along with favorite jokes and insights from friends and others close to him. Rare family pictures, beautiful artwork created by his son Micah Nelson, and lyrics to classic songs punctuate these charming and poignant memories. Willie Nelson has touched millions, and none more deeply than his family, friends, and bandmates, several of whom share, for the first time, intimate stories about the Red Headed Stranger.

From teaching a granddaughter to play the guitar to touring with the Highwaymen, from picking cotton while growing up in Texas to being home with the tribe on Maui, Willie takes you on the tour bus and, through candid observations and vivid recollections, gives you a front-row seat to his remarkable world. But beware: "You know you shouldn't be reading this BS, it could ruin you for all time to come," he says. "You could end up a social outcast like me, an outlaw!"

At once a road journal written in his inimitable, homespun voice and a fitting tribute to America's greatest traveling bard, Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die—introduced by Kinky Friedman, another favorite son of Texas—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.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 1. 14.5 x 21.5 cm. A holiday tale of hitting rock bottom in Nashville, an outlaw's redemption, and the true meaning of the holiday season - but in irreverent Willie Nelson fashion, THE TROUBLEMAKER is also a wild and colourful account of Willie's transition from struggling artist to country folk hero. As 1971 drew to a close, it was beginning to feel a lot like Christmas in Nashville - but Willie Nelson was not feeling jolly this holiday. With his career stalled, he was being hounded by record executives pressuring him to deliver the formulaic "Nashville Sound." His second marriage was on the rocks, coming to a head one night when Willie came home drunk from a holiday party and his wife pushed him down the stairs, shouting, "How's that for a twelve-step program" It seemed like the only ones who understood him were the pigs he was raising, who shared some ****-laced Christmas brownies with him on the night he wrote "Crazy." Things seemed to keep getting worse in Nashville, especially with the record company, so when Willie's house burned down he took it as a sign. Willie had started to look and behave a lot like Jesus - he was skinny, he didn't bathe or shave, and he travelled around the countryside with a band of long-haired friends - and he felt his resurrection lay ahead in Texas. Maybe it was just a Christmas miracle, but that holiday season when Willie confronted failure after failure, he only became more determined to stay on his own path, with his music and his life. After the sad but life-changing Christmas of 1971, Willie set about making music his own way. Once in Texas, he got back on the road and in the spirit of peace and togetherness, brought together hippies and rednecks as one audience for the first time. Willie would go on to create the "outlaw movement" with other trailblazing artists like Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson, becoming the folk hero he is today. As they say, the rest is history - or as Willie says, "If you fail at something long enough, you become a legend." You won't see no sad and teary eyes When I get my wings, and it's my time to flyJust call my friends and tell themThere's a party, come on bySo just roll me up and smoke me when I dieIn 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.
