Another notable moment in Jerry's career: he played lead guitar on the Porter Wagoner session at which The Cold Hard Facts Of Life was recorded.

Amos Moses is such a great thumping hit. His voice is a great part of that song's success, an embodiment of the human male swamp ape. That
was one of the songs I bought as a 45, and I played the shit out of it for weeks, on my crappy, cheapest Radio Shack stereo. I don't play it as much any more, but I've yet to grow tired of it.
