This has always been a country favorite of mine.  This is a clip from the Porter Waggoner show that used to come on Saturdays somewhere between the evening news and prime time and I really never used to watch it as a kid and teenager; and I’m sorry now that I didn’t because I know I missed some classic moments from the likes of country stars whose work I now love.  Man, that Porter was a dude!

Uncle Joe and I used to sometimes sing snippets of country songs, and I remember singing the chorus to Jolene,…”Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, I’m begging of you please don’t take my man…Jolene, Jolene, Jolene…” at this point Uncle Joe joined in and we sang, “please don’t take him just because you can…”  There was a Don Williams song we used to like…will have to find it.
