Hey Gene,

I'm a fan! I saw ol'EP on the Ed Sullivan Show, live in black & white.
Ed said: "No video from the waist down?" & I think that one went in Doc Parker's favor. He could sing his church music... like no other!

Thank's for visiting, ~(:-_))-kfh

Elvis brought it out in 1970. I was just out of high school.

Kentucky rain keeps pouring down
And up ahead's another town
That I'll go walking thru
With the rain in my shoes,
Searchin' for you
In the cold Kentucky rain,
In the cold Kentucky rain.


When I was looking for the lyrics, I learned that the song was written by Eddie Rabbit who became a star in his own right a little later on.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)

Thanks for reading.
