    Crumbs John! I haven't heard this one for donkey's years! And it's nice to see some of your recent trip to Germany in the video.
    I love the way you continue to find songs to do that are not often covered. You have certainly brought back some memories for ME over the last couple of years I've been on here. Well done matey, and thank you.
    Luv n stuff, Dave

    Thanks, Dave! I prefer songs that haven't been covered much. Less competition!

    Your video brought back good memories of my very recent Viking Rhine River cruise.
    Such a joy to re live those memories with your great singing and unique strumming.
    You definitely have made this song into your own style.
    This is one of your best performances! Great song choice. Love it !

    Thanks, Brenda! Ahh, nice to know we cruised on the same river (we used KD Cruises). I almost gave up on this song because I couldn't do the finger-picking well and had a hard time finding a strum that was suitable, but somehow I got into a rhythm and went with that.

    What a wonderful video! I was disappointed as first when I didn't see the beer can, but then the pictures of all the beautiful castles and sceneries more than made up for it.
    By the way, I like your strum.
    A day without playing uke is a day not well lived.

    Thanks, Joseph! I really appreciate it! This song was kind of challenging for me, but I'm glad I didn't give up! Glad you like the accompanying video!
