Corn Whisky

Owner: Mark Genre: Folk (traditional) Total Plays: 11
Quick Summary:

An old Limelighters tune that my father loved

Media Description:

My father used to play this in the house when I was small.  

We listened the Limelighters almost constantly.

After I showed some musical ability my father would ask me to record or play songs for him.  His favorites were:

Fennario - Joan Baez

Corn Whisky - Limelighters

Mr Bojangles - Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

and of course:

Cats in the Cradle - Harry Chapin

I recorded all of these for him at various times and he would accidently delete them or lose them so I'd bring over a new copy.

Two weeks before he passed away he asked me if I'd ever recorded Corn Whisky.  I said I hadn't then he began to sing it.  I made a mental note to lay it down.   Unfortunately it took me almost 25 years to get it done. 

I'm sorry I was late on this Dad!
