This was probably the first song I really tried to play in C chord because it was one that Ron Stokes played so well. He began teaching me this song at our place on the Rappahannock River, Waterview, VA on Point Breeze. Some of those notes should still be over the water heading for the Chesapeake Bay. It is certainly a song that brings back fond memories. Jason Skinner sent me a Don Reno version playing it slow. I had never heard that before and I want to incorporate in sometime into my version. As always, thanks for listening.

That's one of the nicest versions I've ever heard.

Thanks to you both for the comments. After posting it, I really wish I had played it a little faster. But I do like a song with a good solid melody.

Thanks again.
