    He's well worth getting familiar with Larry.

    Try this one - it was recorded on his most recent album, last August.

    Or this - one of my absolute favorites.

    The ideal song for a bunch of ukulele players. I play more guitar than uke, but I always whip out the uke for this song.

    John has passed away. So sad.
    He sure left us with an amazing catalog of music,though. RIP, John.

    I just read on line - John passed away today, at the age of 73.

    Here's the link from Variety

    Happy Trails, John - you have meant so much to me over the years.

    "When I die, let my ashes float down the Green River
    Let my soul float on up to the Rochester Dam
    I'll be halfway to Heaven. with Paradise waiting
    Just five miles away from wherever I am."
    Paradise, by John Prine

    So sorry to hear that John Prine passed on. I was really hoping he would recover but past health issues were most likely working against him with this horrible virus ravaging the world. RIP John.
    Money can't buy happiness but it can buy a uke which is basically the same thing.

    Ukes are a lot like potato chips. It's hard to stop with just one!
