“The best old songs are sung best by the best old singers.”

-Toni Armenta Andrukaitis

*************************

I was just looking through my old videos and ran across this one of old Tommy. We haven’t seen old Tommy on the square in a long time. He was a wandering minstrel. I sure he’s ok. It’s been maybe 8 or more years. Have you seen Tommy?

Tommy and Mable

With silver hair and a crooked smile
Strumming tunes that make you want to sit awhile
As you tap your toes and start to sing along
He shares each word, and has lived each song
His guitar is closer than any family
And the road, the only home he’ll ever see
But he and Mable have a need to play
Her frame is worn and her strings won’t stay
They’ve seen the whole country from east to west
And the town they’re in, is the one that’s best
Mable’s been signed by many a star
Even Elvis scrawled his name on that old guitar
But the real country singer never settles down
‘Cause there’s another ballad and another town.
