    From a March 16, 1976 episode of Pop Goes The Country. Merle does a great job singing the Floyd Tillman classic with vocal back-up by Ronnie Reno and future wife Leona Williams. At the time of this show Merle had not yet recorded this song. His finally did a few years later and it was released on his 1980 MCA album “The Way I Am.”

    Don Markham featured on the sax solo in this clip recently passed away. He died on Feb. 24, 2017 at the age of 85. He played in Merle’s band The Strangers for over 30 years.
