The Blue Tail Fly

I was sitting on the front porch in a rocker, watching it rain, shelling peas with my husband (life is good) and a big blue fly was after my wine (Mike and Shelly's Riesling vintage 2012).  It put me in mind of this.

I was really looking for the version he did in 1964 for the movie Smoky (Yes, the Will James story for you horse folks but you wouldn't recognize anything but the name).  It's here, if you would like that version, along with all his songs from that soundtrack  (Please excuse the makeup commercial)


If you like horses and/or folk songs it is well worth it.
