Just once in a while a song comes along that just sticks in my head and refuses to go away. This is one of them.
A good friend of mine sent me an album by the Tooting Frooties that had this track on it written by a bloke called Noel Brown. I gather Noel is well known around the Kingston-upon-Thames area where he still plays the pub circuit with various mates.
The song was also recorded by Ian Gom, late of Bryndsley Swartz, in Nashville and was a minor hit in the C&W charts. I thought the original was better, but thought in my own modest way, that I could do it better! Well my first attempt wasn’t so great but I liked the one I ended up with – they’re both on the Blues Merchant album – so here’s the three versions so you can judge for yourself.
My final version :
My first attempt (not very good!) :
