This is a picture that was taken of me entertaining in a Seniors Home.. This song was recorded by Al Dexter who was a country musician and songwriter. He is best known for "Pistol Packin' Mama," a 1944 hit that was one of the most popular recordings of the World War II years.. He owned a bar in the 1930s and helped popularize the style of country music known as honky tonk.. He made his recording debut on November 28, 1936 for ARC Records.. Dexter was the first country singer to perform on Broadway, and in 1971, was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. He died January 28, 1984 in Lewisville, Texas. I added 3 guitar tracks and a voice track to make this one different.. :) Thanks for stopping by... Comments are most welcome.... Have a good day everyone.. Cheers, Gary
