Today would have been my Dad’s 90th birthday. Unfortunately, he left this world too soon, at the age of 72, because of 50 years of cigarette smoking. I miss him a lot. He was a wonderful Dad.
I decided to post a tribute to him by posting videos of some of his favorite music. I remember hearing these songs from a set of old vinyl albums with silver labels on which my Dad had drawn pictures so my sister and I could tell what songs were on each album before we knew how to read. There were lots of others, but these were always three of my favorites.
Hank Williams Sr. singing “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.”
Tennessee Ernie Ford singing “16 Tons.”
Finally, Johnny Cash singing “The Great Speckled Bird.”
