Classic country by Harlan Howard. A hit for Lefty Frizzell. Done by many others. Harlan and Lefty might turn over in their graves if they heard what I did to their song. But maybe they understand that sometimes folks GOTS A NEED TO GET LOUD.

Thanks Richard.  Now I want some P and B toast.

Thanks, Clarky.  I did redo and repost in more of a traditional/acoustic version.  With a cowboy hat too.  I always enjoy your hats.

Very nice Uncle J, a new song for me, but then I'm just a youngster *cough cough*

A nice Swampy sound done in signature UJ style. Perhaps they did turn a bit in their graves, to get a better earshot. Guitar playing and voice in fine shape, loud and soothing, peanut butter and jelly.

Thanks, Andries and Poorness.  I think maybe this song did need a cowboy hat.

Thanks, Pick.  I actually had the volume on about 3.5.  My Swampy is a boomer.

Thanks, Dave.  I got a little carried away at times with the string bending.  But that was my mood.

Thanks, Denbo.   I think you made me blush a little.   Good song.  Usually with more of an acoustic sound.  But sometimes a good song can be changed up and still be good.  :)

Another great rendition UJ. I don't know the song, but your stamp's all over it.  Incidently, there's 2 other letters I now find hard not to think of when I see I*O*W*A ~ ~ U*J* :D

Loved that Swampie ending! Great tune well sung. Slide work terrific. Loved it Unc.
