Today's theme is the music your parents listened to and how it made you feel.
Folks that know me might already know what direction this music trip will be taking me.
My parents listened to old country which back then wasn't so old and gospel; all of which leaned heavy towards bluegrass music.
I don't think I thought about how it made me feel. My Daddy is bit of a character and cut up, who could usually be found with a guitar on his knee. He would be just as likely to get up and dance around the room if the mood came over him. Not necessarily because he could dance he was just silly like that. Mama also had her zany moments too. Mama is blessed with an amazing gift for singing and harmony but she was also blessed with the ability to make up a sing song about just about anything. Mama also knows about every child's song there ever was.
I have to say I was blessed with a kind of childhood that very few children get.
There was never a lot of dollars around; they had surely been replace with love and laughter.
I'm going to start this journey with some Johnny Horton.
Riding in Daddy's truck with a floorboard full of so many tools our knees were about up to our chins most likely on our way to cut wood.
Could you see that alligator?
Let's play one more of Johnny's song's.
Mama always loved this one so good.
This next song is a good silly one. This bluegrass band is probably best known for the song
That's just one of many, many great songs recorded by the Osborne Brothers. They also stick in my mind so clear because Daddy loaded us all up and we drove to Lakeside Amusement Park to see them when I was fairly young.
I've been a fan ever since.
How about one more?
And another of Mama's favorites..
I'm going to end this musical train ride with a Hank Snow tune.
With Daddy been a truck driver and spending his time in the military this song
surely was a hit.
Thanks for stopping by
