Smiling like a hero that just received his medal

Since my baby’s gone
So don’t rock the jukebox

One of my favorite songs of Jackson’s that is not that popular but is a great song to play while fishing or sitting by the fire is “Dog River Blues“.  It is a two-step song too.

Now I still got the river but I ain’t got you
I got the Dog River blues
