Subject: RE: Origins: This Old House (Stuart Hamblin)
Like many this song brings wonderful memories from younger days, and has always been an inspiration. About 10 years ago I heard a version on "BOSTON PETE's" Radio. I could be wrong, but as I remember it was Stuart Hamblem himself singing the song with an introductory narration. He told the hunting story and said the song was written as a ballad. He then sung the song as a ballad instead of the up-tune which we have all heard. The ballad and story are very moving. Recently I found a televised version that is close to the "Boston Pete's" version. Here is the link.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCm83w1dAPE
