My OH used to sing that one too. He was in a country duo called Diamondback for a while.  Loved the humour and the storytelling in the songs.  Another ole country song I liked - 'Momma, don't let your babies grow up to be Cowboys'. Cheers for the reminder Z.


Crabby, there were a few places in Doncaster where country music was popular, The Drum at Bentley was one I remember.

I think you're confusing Country with Country and Western Floyd.

I like both of these, I didn't realise there was a distinction! I live and learn.
