    Are you sure that David Allen Coe and Jimmy Buffet are not brothers from different mothers :-)

    This one was recorded by Van, and Lonnie , and Chris Barber, harking back to their skiffle days.
    Point of interest that I didn't know, but many others may know, the Mr Howard referred to in the song is the pseudonym JJ was using when hiding out and contemplating retirement.

    Nice one Rusty. The Skiffle sessions Live from Belfast is a gem of a record, and it is great to
    hear the pioneers of Skiffle getting together and putting a new twist on old songs. Van the Man
    always wants to put a gospel vocal inflections on everything he sings. I think he wishes he
    was born on the Mississippi delta. Good stuff and mightily played. Thanks.

    I am quite sure they're not. lol It was just a phase for Coe, but he was pretty good at it.

    Not sure why this Hank Locklin song is on the Skiffle list, but it is, and I've always loved it, so here it is...

    Congratulations. She is a wide awake beauty. Welcome to the world.

    On Children
    Kahlil Gibran

    Your children are not your children.
    They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
    They come through you but not from you,
    And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

    You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
    For they have their own thoughts.
    You may house their bodies but not their souls,
    For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
    which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
    You may strive to be like them,
    but seek not to make them like you.
    For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

    You are the bows from which your children
    as living arrows are sent forth.
    The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
    and He bends you with His might
    that His arrows may go swift and far.
    Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
    For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
    so He loves also the bow that is stable.
