I wish I had a recording of my dad singing this song, but I don’t so you’ll just have to listen to me reading the words — no music.
Dad learned to read music when he was in his 60s. Most of the time he played music by ear.
He also taught himself how to play the guitar, harmonica, organ, and accordion. I did not take after him.
I wonder if my cousin George remembers any of the songs he and my dad wrote together. One was called One Legged Chicken. It was hysterical.
