Musical Monday # 138

I was introduced to Musical Monday by Delores who copied the meme from another site.

I think it’s a fun way to show off some of the music we like and brighten up our Mondays at the same time. 


I’ll be finding my clips on you tube, so will simply credit that site since there are often so many versions of everything and I wouldn’t want to accidentally credit the wrong artist.


Today’s clip is:  The Nashville Teens


Tobacco Road

    1. S.J.Qualls; it was very popular here in Australia for a while. What music did you listen to 20-30-40 years ago?

  2. Wow! This is an oldie. It first came out the year I started working - 1960!!! John D. Loudermilk released it first, and then this version came out a few years later. Another regular on the record hop playlists. :)

    1. Lee; 1960! I did not know that. The year I turned 8, the year my mum packed up and left us. I like this Nashville Teens version, it's the one I remember best.

    3. I started work in the July...still aged 15; I turned 16 in November, 1960.

      That must have been so hard on you all..your mother leaving. Some adults have no idea how much hurt they cause children...hurt that remains forever. The scars remain; they never go away. We may keep the scars hidden, the hurt tampered down...but what we experience as children really never goes away. I wish some adults realised that and woke up to themselves. (I speak from experience...childhood experiences).

  3. Never heard of the song or group. But it has a nice beat.

    1. Dora; it's an old one from way back, you may be too young.

    1. Andrew; I'm not surprised you don't remember this, you probably heard more cultured music growing up, rather than the radio's Top40.

  8. I wasn't familiar with this song nor the group. That might be more about me not being very diverse in my musical choices. Always interesting to see what you post.
