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 AD and Derek. This is one of those songs that never goes out of style.

That git has a good deep tone. Great job on this classic, Kale. Nice heartbreak in the vocals!
