Merle always did some heart felt songs and were all easy to fall in love with. You did this just great!!

Merle was in a league of his own. I hesitate to send you back to YouTube, though. You may get lost for weeks....lol Check out Merle doing impersonations on YT. He does OUTSTANDING takes on Hank Snow and Marty Robbins! Appreciate the listen and the props! Glad you enjoyed my performance of this MH hit song! Have a terrific week, my friend....:-)

Keith, may I say that the recording quality of your files have gotten better and better through the years..Vocally as well.. and that high note was right on at 1:25 and 2:10..You are a natural at country as I have mentioned way back.

Joyce, thank you for your input. When I first started out singing karaoke online, my recording equipment consisted of a Blue Snowball microphone and Audacity. Today I record with an AudioTechnica M4000S fed through an Alesis MULTI MIX 8 USB FX mixer. I still use Audacity and have become a lot more familiar with it through the years. I know that I will never get back to the voice I had before drinking and smoking took its tolls. However, I am a social drinker now and I have been smoke free for 18 years. I still choose to tackle songs that force me to the next level ( if that makes sense.) Especially songs that challenge my range. I have always enjoyed using my falsetto through the years but, the older I get, the more of a challenge it becomes....lol I appreciate the listen and the props. Glad you enjoyed my take on this MH classic. BTW.....I have a crying in your beer original song that would be fun to collaborate on with you once again. Sending you the acapella version seemed to work out magically last time. Are you up for a challenge? Let me know. Have a wonderful week, my friend

I had not heard this song before having heard it, I think by you, in our previous engagement place. Anyway, I started writing a poem/prose about this very subject. I find it to be true, and not just with, the you the song means, but with others if they don't wear the same feathers as this duck does. I use a lot of camouflage. Sometimes, even the mirror doesn't see the real me. There's an old guy looking at me, that can't be me. Here, I let more of me be heard. Anyway. terrific hearing and relating. Rich

Hey, Rich! This was the first time I ever recorded this song. I would like to hear/read your poem. I reflect sometimes, looking back on my life and wonder if the old man I see in the mirror is the same as the young man thinking inside my head. I don't think that men ever grow up. What got us excited as teenagers still excites us today.....lol Our friends and family see our exterior and think that we have it all together but, we are still the confused and uncertain young man that we have always been on the inside. When I grow up, I want to be a policeman.....HA! Have a great week, buddy......:-)
