For everyone (else) that didn't exactly live up to family expectations.

 

Local radio dj plays the part about getting a haircut and real job when talking about people who need to get a real job...they fade out before he becomes rich.

Resurrecting this thread because this song's played a few times lately while I was working, and it's taking on a new meaning for me as of late. That, and I figured I'd share since a lot of you guys have shared fond memories of your dads in the past. Saw these guys opening for Breaking Benjamin and Five Finger Death Punch two years ago. They stole the show.

 

The video has more a negative angle than the pyrics alone. Honestly, today is the first time I'd seen the video. I always just thought of the song as a conversation between a father and son, at the father's twilight of life.

"feel free to add   your favourites"'./.......said 88 power....OK.....most of you may disapprove....:mellow:

.......maybe it is something to do with age.......sigh........but that long haired/ head banging/  lyric less/  tuneless/   screeching  dirge, that seems in vogue these days, just doesn't do it for me....    I have a good mate who went a long way to an AC/DC    concert.......bloody  dreadfull garbage.......sort of like a screaming match set in a panel beating shop.....

......California does not seem to great "wraps " these days....but one Kate Wolf  ...is an absolute standout  amongst   some incredibly good American female singers.......Like    Nancy Griffith.......a girl with guitar and beautiful vocals......and meaning full vocals.......a product of California

Sadly......Kate  is no longer with us.......but her legacy lives on....and I find her music  so enjoyable...........along with any of the yesterdays "top tier" country  music, male and female artists.....

...The trip to the "Grand Ol'  Oprey"  back in 2005 Lebanon,  with a bunch of the RPRU    crew was a memorable   event.....

I like how old Box can do the train whistle purely with his own voice , I think Roy Acuff does it the same way if I remember right .

I still have alot of the old singers on 8 track tapes and on 33 rpm vinyl record collection  that my parents had . I remember listening to them on the old Sylvania console record player/8 track player and radio when I was a youngster

Still my favorite country song----------it has almost everybody........

Mike

..agree   100% on that topic.......especially with the undisputed Queen   of them all........Dolly .  There is some seriously  "top  shelf" female singers in that category.......from the US.....but if asked to pick  favourites........Miss   Parton    would head the list.......She just has   every thing  that a great vocalist   has.......and    her rendition of  "The Deportee" is   eye watering in its delivery........
