Crockett In My Pocket

A couple of country tunes for you today courtesy of Howard Crockett, best known - if known at all - for writing "Honky Tonk Man" and other hits for Johnny Horton. He was pretty nifty as a singer as well.

"Wine-O From Chicago" - Howard Crockett

"Soap And Water" - Howard Crockett


  1. Is "soap and water" a dig at your glasgow-based readers? ("weegies" are frequently referred to as soap dodgers by us from the east coast of scotland))

  2. I knew before opening the comment that it would be from George.
    I just didn't know that it would be so insulting!

    1. "I just didn't know that it would be so insulting!"
      Really? We have known each other for 33 years, and I suspect I've said worse.

    2. I'm staying out of this, other than to say that no dig was intended and that I have nothing but the greatest respect for my Glasgow-based readers.
