    I reckon this tune is perty pertinent to lotsa folks right now...

    If we make it through December
    Everythings gonna be all right I know
    It's the coldest time of winter
    And I shivver when I see the fallin snow

    If we make it through December
    I got plans of bein in a warmer town come summer time
    Maybe even California
    If we make it through December we'll be fine

    I got laid off down at the factory
    And there timings not the greatest in the world
    Heaven knows I been workin' hard
    I wanted Christmas to be right for daddy's girl
    Now I don't mean to hate December
    It's meant to be the happy time of year
    And why my little girl don't understand
    Why daddy can't afford no Christmas here

    If we make it through December
    Everythings gonna be alright I know
    It's the coldest time of winter
    And I shivver when I see the fallin' snow

    If we make it through December
    I got plans of bein' in a warmer town come summer time
    Maybe even California
    If we make it through December we'll be fine

    I'd give my left arm to be able to play the guitar lead in this song...

    You give your left arm and you won't be able to play lead on anything.

    BTW one of the many great things Ron Reagan did.

    Have seen him live twice, both shows were excellent. "A Tribute to the Best Damn Fiddle Player in the World (Or My Salute to Bob Wills)" is a fantastic album and several of the players are from the original Texas Playboys band.

    truly a great album, as is "Same Train, A Different Time" (subtitled Merle Haggard Sings the Great Songs of Jimmie Rodgers).

    I've been fortunate to see the living legend twice aswell.

    The Hag gave up his seat to the Big Bopper on that fateful Buddy Holly plane that crashed. He woulda died that day.

    The Hag is one of the greats.

    I am pretty sure that was Waylon Jennings.

    I'll see your R. Reagan mention with the same by Merle himself.

    Merle is one of the greats. Classic country is 10,000x better than the soulless crap out there today.
