Shane did this song at the first show that the Trio did when Nick rejoined the Trio.
It was quite an experience.
The show was in Winston-Salem.
We were living in Greensboro then.
W-S is only a few miles from Greensboro.
I picked Bob and Nick up at the airport.
I knew that Nick had rejoined the Trio.
Nick came to Bob's house for a week to rehearse.
I asked Bob if I could come and watch. He said no.
I'd just seen Sinatra for the first time, and we talked about Sinatra in the car going to their hotel.
I missed the turn off for their hotel.
Bob got us back on track. He had an incredible sense of direction. Best I've ever known.
Nick was really worried before the show. He was worried that he wouldn't remember all of the words to the songs.
At the show, they were all totally bombed. Bob sure was.
After one of the songs, Bob just started singing this song. After a minute, the band joined in.
I could be wrong, but I don't think it was rehearsed. They just did it.
He did some other crazy things.
He tried to sing Your Cheatin Heart.
But, couldn't remember the words.
George fed them to him ....
What a time....
