About this audiobook

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.

    If you are a Willie Nelson fan, read this book. If you are NOT a Willie Nelson fan, then you should be, and you will be if you read this book. Willie is a great man, poet, philosopher and family man. The book? Why the book is a work of art. There are lyrics, ( mostly his own) and illustrations by his son Micah. We all know a lot of things about Willie Nelson, his music, his tribulations and his charity. I had no idea that he was a philosopher, or a man so loving that his patchwork family doesn't know or care who started where or why. That, in my opinion, is his greatest talent. He is an amazing and loving family man. Scattered throughout the book you will find stories and thoughts about Willie, written by family and friends. They are a beautiful tribute. This book is not great literature, but it is great art, and great love. recommended

    In this memoir, the legendary Willie Nelson shares thoughts about his life. While traveling on the road, he muses about many topics from his upbringing and greatest influences, to his mistakes and regrets.Willie is open and very frank about all of his thoughts. He discusses God, and what he strongly feels is the role we are meant to play in the world. His common sense thoughts on the environment are connected to this.Willie openly discusses his influences and muses, giving credit where credit is due. With his trademark outlaw wisdom, he also discusses his beliefs on politics, with some questionable ideas.The book is filled with poignant memories, and humorous anecdotes. Willie shares pictures, as well as drawings and artwork by his son Micah. Family and friends are clearly extremely important to Willie.There is no doubt that he is an icon in country music. Respected by many, he is a prolific songwriter, a poet, and a champion of the underdog. This book reflects all that is Willie Nelson.Having seen him several times in concert, I have always been a fan of Willie. I respect his honesty, his natural wisdom, and his music. He is genuine, which is hard to find today. He has the heart and the soul of a poet. I love this about him.

    A short memoir from Willie, the book is a bit of a ramble with snippets of his life intertwined with song lyrics and reflections written by family members and close friends. Within the pages, a reader does get a brief glimpse of Willie's personal values, beliefs and philosophy. The many fans of Wille will enjoy. (lj)

    I liked how it began! It changed midway to be words from others about Willie plus a lot of stupid jokes. It especially didn’t work well as an audiobook because it wasn’t clear when it was his words vs others until well into what they were saying - annoying!

    Great book could not stop listening to it. I liked all the siblings and wife contributing their 2 cents. Thanks. Steve
