1963. Bob Gibson and John D. Loudermilk.

some country laced with a shot of blues...

best listened to in an empty bar at 3AM with your shoulders hunched over a glass of whiskey :p

Another super job done Jon. Where do you keep coming up with all these great oldies? I'll have to find the empty bar later

This is a favourite at the People of Lewisham Ukulele Collective [PLUC].
Here's a piece I wrote for them about Abilene itself - all slightly tongue-in-cheek, of course. If you enjoy half as much as Jon's performance, my work here is done:
