Classic Rewind: Jerry Reed – ‘She Got The Goldmine (I Got the Shaft)’

One response to “Classic Rewind: Jerry Reed – ‘She Got The Goldmine (I Got the Shaft)’

    This song probably is too politicially incorrect to be a hit today (or probably even get much airplay) but it is both funny and true

    Jerry was a unique personality and possibly the greatest guitar player on the planet (at least Chet Atkins thought so). Between the ‘Smokey and The Bandit” movies and some of the silly novelty songs he performed, people have forgotten how supremely talented Reed was as a songer, songwriter, comedian, musician and actor

    I can’t think of a current day performer quite in Jerry’s league – Keith Urban and Brad Paisley are the closest but they are not there
