Lefty Frizzell

Christmas brings forth memories of all kinds. Yesterday was a lot about reminiscing, including listening to old guitar music. All should enjoy this old clip; daughters will find it especially poignant, I think.

I love this! Thanks for the reminder - had fun playing it for my 25 year old son.

Happy New Year! Your blog is great, many thanks -

Not bad for country music. Apparently before MTV they used sock puppets for entertainment. Of course MTV expanded on the idea with Sifl and Olly.

Low quality sampling here:

PS, if interested you would be better served by searching on YouTube(tm) for Sifl and Olly.

We used to sing this song in the car when I was a little kid. My dad would singing it whenever I asked him to buy me something.
