An attempt at joy and lightness.
Comments and criticisms welcome.
Tried to include bars and chords that are not too dependant on formatting
hoping you will play and sing along. Cheers.

Richard,

Great to hear a RichMac song again. A cheery one, at that...

Don't recall hearing anyone using that guitar before... RichMac and the New Zealand Two?

Enjoyed. Well done.

RichMac,

The lightness works for me- and the western back track sounds great. Thanks for giving me a singalong lift!

Hi Floyd. Glad you enjoyed it.
As far as I'm concerned it's all just a bit of fun.
Merged two versions of the baritone track to flesh it out a bit more.
It's hard work being cheery though.
Smiling makes my face ache.
Cheers.

Thanks Rob.
Yes Johnny Cash and Waylon, Kristofferson, Willie.
That's my era.
If others add the chords and bar lines to their lyrics
I will be able to easily play their songs.
Something I would enjoy. Cheers.

Hi Joe.
Let myself go with the organs.
Generated a half dozen B4 tracks and a couple of funk and merged them all for a busier background.
Thanks for the comment. Cheers.
