Too funny. I've had this stuck in my head for several days... and then you post it. Nice. Way to get it really stuck in my head Doug.

Thanks for the positive inputs BrianQ and Uncle John. This song is a sleeper. I would never have thought of it until someone chose it in our ukulele group; I knew it was perfect for CBGs. The simple Johnny Cash (Boom Chick A) strum works well with the 1-finger chords and the lyrics are fun to sing. Variety is the spice of life.

Love this song.  Works great the way you folks have done it.

Great choice, I really dig the variety of the slinger’s songbook!!!
