Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. This song doesn't really have anything to do with the holiday but Happy Sunday all the same. Here's my rendition of a Don Gibson song from 1958 (played on a cigar box guitar). I hope you folks like it.

Thanks Rope, RTZ, and Roy (working the R's today). I appreciate your comments and that's a true compliment coming from Rope.

 You like Tommy Emmanuel  seem to have a lot of fun playing the guitar. 58 was a good year for music
