Woody (circa 1964)
Check out the "Roy Rogers" guitar! Trigger and a campfire by
the trees, oh what I'd give for a guitar like that today!! My Daddy fixed
up the strap and tuned her up to an open "E" chord for me.
Flogging those bar chords and singing to the top of my lungs, anytime
they would let me! We played country and bluegrass tunes around the house,
then "Big Woody" started singing with a quartet!
Pictured below are my grandparents. They called me "Little Woody".
George and Willie Starr, and John and Addie Wright. The Starrs lived
in Athens, TN and the Wrights in Decatur, TN. Many a childhood weekend
was spent in their homes with cousins, aunts, uncles and friends. I look
forward to seeing them again in Heaven!
