I recently heard this old Merle Travis tune and decided to do a cover of it for Sunday morning. It was written in 1947 so it didn't exactly age well, but it's still a cute song.

Thanks Rowdy, Derek, and T-Belly. Some of these old tunes are still a lot of fun to play.

Smart job, and not so long ago in my part of the world the song could have been called Lardy arse! ;)

Love it!  LOL.  Never heard it before.  I think you had better lay low for a while or take a body guard if you go out.  Or hide behind some pretty fat gal.

Oh my. Those are big kitties Nancy. My 18 year old tabby is sub-6 lbs now. She’s a frail thing.
