    Here's a Lefty Frizzell song from 1971, he died at age only 47 in 1975. For a time in the early 50's he was as hot as Hank Williams, but could not sustain it for several reasons, both personal and professional. A dream is mentioned twice in the last verses. I worked on this song a bit a few months ago, but never recorded it. I love it cause I knew guys exactly like this, who were the age I am now, in my youth hanging around bands. I wanted to get one in quick this week, probably will be all I'll have time for.

    This is a song I wrote some time ago, but have never used it here. It started out as a quick 4/4 western swing version. I decided to try and simplify it so it would be easier for my local group to play along with. So this is a slower waltz version with fewer chord changes. I'll probably try to work up the other version later.

    After writing and practicing this song multiple times in D, my voice was really worn out yesterday from singing all afternoon, so I dropped it down to C to make it easier on my voice. I had to learn the solo bit all over again.

    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    I'm always afraid the Irving Azoff thugs (the group that manages a lot of these SoCal bands and polices YouTube with a vengeance) will pull this and send their goons to throw me in a dungeon, but I must do this song. The Merlefest shirt is somewhat appropriate because the Waybacks performed "Full Moon Fever" as their classic album at the festival last year.

    Hello, Steve! Ralf has already done a fab job on this one and his Debbie Harry is far more authentic than mine, but, anyway here is my version ....
