Joe Tex: The Old Philosopher
Jim Delehant, Hit Parader, January 1967
I LIKE TO write songs from true experiences. Things that have actually happened. You can't get away from the truth of everyday life. Sometimes I'll be sitting down listening to people talk and they'll give you a title for a song. Most of my titles have been from people just talking. I usually start with a title and then go on to the song and put in true-to-life experiences.
