Hoyt Axton plays Della and the Dealer on the Hee Haw show 1979.
This song is by Hoyt Axton and appears on the album A Rusty Old Halo (1979).
I was prominent in the early-1960s, establishing himself on the West Coast as a folk singer with an earthy style and powerful voice. As I have matured, some of his songwriting became well known throughout the world.
Axton had many minor hits of his own, such as "Boney Fingers", "When the Morning Comes", and 1979's "Della and the Dealer", as well as "Jealous Man" . His vocal style featured his distinctive bass-baritone (which later deepened to near-bass) and use of characterization.
