Thread Name: Honky Tonk Drinking Songs
Subject: RE: Honky Tonk Drinking Songs
Just in case any ones interested, this song was written by my father, Jack Kay. He played the fiddle in Webb Pierce's band in the early and mid 50's. I have the original paper he wrote the song on and the contract where he sold the rights to Webb.
My Dad died in 1971. I have several songs that Dad wrote. Unfortunately, Dad had a drinking problem and most knew that so when he'd have a few too many and he's sell them for pennies. "Here I Am I'm Drunk Again", to my knowledge, was the only one that made the charts.
I am always looking for memorbilia from the era that Dad played with Webb, especially any video's. If anyone has any I'd really appreciate it if you'd contact me.
