An Opera in the Cotton Fields

“I used to work in the cotton fields a lot when I was young.
There were a lot of African Americans working out there.
A lot of Mexicans
– the blacks and the whites and the Mexicans,
all out there singing,
and it was like an opera in the cotton fields,
and I can still hear it in the music that I write and play today.”
~ Willie Hugh Nelson,
Singer-Songwriter, Author, Poet, Actor, and Activist
