This 80's song from the Bellamy Brothers has always been a special song to me so I decided to do a cover of it on CBG. I added some imagery where I thought it was appropriate. A special thanks to all the Vietnam Veterans out there.

Thanks AD, Nancy, and AGP. I think I spent more time on the imagery than I did the song. ;-)

Totally agree with the comment about doing things your way; "the way you hear it it in your head" :-)

Wow! A quick response on this one. Thanks for the comments Silent Jim, Denbo, Danny Boy, Dave, and Uncle. I wasn't sure if people would like it so always good when folks do.

Good advice on learning.  I like that song too and I like the way you do it.  Very nice.  Mellow good.

And always good to have a Silent Jim sighting.

I listened again Poorness. It’s a good song. You do it well. Nice mic too.
