Willie Nelson has probably logged countless hours of cards on the road, so it’s no surprise that he picked up a cool trick along the way.
In the video above, the legend shows his sister, Bobbie Nelson, a sleight of hand trick known as Sam and the Bellhop. It’s essentially a way to tell a story using cards to represent the story’s characters. Willie’s version is Rich Guy and the Porter, a different pattern of the trick with a country-western spin on the tale. It’s a slick trick, and Nelson has it down pat.
