An old Limelighters tune that my father loved
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!
