    Original gangsta of bluegrass.
    Ralph embodied the "high lonesome" sound.
    He will be missed. Here is a very fitting song for his passing as he pleads with Death to give him more time on this earth.

    The old guy there is George Jones, deeper voice than Ralph, but he can go quite high too.

    Ralph Stanley sang the original version of the song. Dan Cominski of Allison Krausse & Union Station sang the version in the movie.

    Annnnnd-
    A friend of mine did the mandolin parts in quite a bit of that movie- Mike Compton is his name. Quite the player in the Monroe style.
