Charlie Chaplin chose Petula Clark to record this song for him, back in 1967 ..... it was a massive hit worldwide. I've always loved it from day one, so here it is, played on my ''Vega White Laydie.''Thanks for'a tunin' in, Don. Key F, tuning CGBD.

Very nice, Don. Nostalgic for some of us (1967.)

Hey Don, nice job on it. In June we saw Petula Clark as the headliner on Cousin Brucie's British Invasion show here in New Jersey. She can still belt them out at 85!

Thanks a lot Marco, Paul, Mike, and Rick .... always appreciate your thoughts and encouragement.I looked up some of Charlies memorable quotes on Google, there's lots of food for thought, and humor in them all, here's but one to sign out with. ..... Don
