If you thought this was a Clinton-bashing thread that had escaped from GD, you were wrong.
Are the lyrics to Sevie Ray Vaughn’s song Willie the Wimp (and His Cadillac Coffin) based on a true incident?
A friend claims that they are and says that he actually read a newspaper account of the funeral.
I’d like to verify this, butGoogle hasn’t helped much. Does anybody have the Straight Dope on Willie’s remarkable passing? How about Willie’s (or Clarence’s) last name and a date of death so I can look it up in the newspaper archives at the library?
