The Arms of Mary.  Great song. As for the video? Forgive them, they're Scottish or maybe just drunk. Or both.

Here's Leo Kottke doing it, if you prefer, although I wish he would sing. Am I the only one who likes Leo's singing, btw?

Yep, that's a country song alright, its a good un.
The woman run off and left him where he don't wanna be.

I like to be happy. So why are there some sad songs I like so much ? ....like ' Yesterday ' by Paul M.
I can't listen to much of that kind of country or blues at one time or it starts to bring me down.

How many country songs do you hear about a guy who marries his sweetheart,  has good kids, loves God, stays out of trouble ?
Most of them seem to be about da country blues.
I should write a country song, let me see...

My wife and dog ran off
My truck and emotions are broke down
Spilled beer on my cowboy hat and boots
I'm the sadist guy in town   

There are a bunch of ' country ' songs I like and I live in and grew up in the Nashville area.

Tom T. Hall went against the grain and scored a hit with a very unusual song of positive stuff,  called I LOVE....  here are the words...

I love little baby ducks, old pick-up trucks, slow-moving trains, and rain
I love little country streams, sleep without dreams, sunday school in may,
And hay
And i love you too

I love leaves in the wind, pictures of my friends, birds in the world, and squirrels
I love coffee in a cup, little fuzzy pups, bourbon in a glass, and grass and i love you too

I love honest open smiles, kisses from a child, tomatoes on the vine, and onions
I love winners when they cry, losers when they try, music when it's good, and life
And i love you too

=============================

The " bourbon in a glass, and grass " part, was Tom just being honest about himself. He also wrote a song about liking beer.

Great tune there, ducktrapper.  Thanks for the link to Robbie Fulks and his great song.  This one's been played a lot this week...

I'll look forward to hearing your thoughts on the Georgia Hard CD.  It looks to me like this is his latest release. 

There's lot's of his music on YouTube, and his web site has some great stories about being a working musician.  I'd like to hear more of his YouTube stuff, but I just seem to always go back to Georgia Hard.  I usually play fingerstyle, but I'm relearning the use of a pick for this one.

For a more whimsical side of Robbie Fulks, have a listen to "That Bangle Girl".  I'm getting a kick out of that video...
