I need some help. I am searching for a song I heard playing at a garage sale I stopped at, and I can't find it anywhere! Ugh. I have little info
and have spent hours looking (listening) and am not having any luck.
All I have is:
I asked the lady who was singing it and she said with a question in her voice "Marty Robbins".
I've listened to what I believe is every Marty Robbins song and am not finding it...
It's going to be a singer who sounds like Marty Robbins and was "maybe" releasing music around the same time.
Has that old recording studio sound (don't know how to explain this). Like an old radio sound - not perfect quality.
Country like / a ballad. Guy had deeper voice.
Not twangy in the least. Is simply a classic ballad.
If you listened to it you would probably be familiar with it if you, your parents, or grandparents listened to top ballads from those early recording
days. The people who were there when I heard it were instantly taken back so clearly it was popular. I think I heard my parents playing it in the
70's but its far older (recording quality gives it away on age).
It's a really good song!
If I could post a reward for helping me find this song I would. This is a last resort.
I will post some music if someone can tell me how to attach a you tube video. I forget.
That's not it but I like the sound of that song so thank you for sharing it. I'm enjoying that early studio sound in all my searching.
I forgot to say there was a "slight" twinge of an Irish accent at the end of a few of his words. Man - how can I recall these details yet not
remember the words or the song? My mind must be going. Thank you for giving me another good song to add it to my library.
I got hopeful by your reply too but I just looked him up and he is too current. He could almost be the one - if he had recorded when there were those
echoes. I've even tried to look up all artists under sun records since it's an older studio so maybe I need to find other early studios and just go
through the list.
Yes it's that sound and that style. Some of the music back then was a trip. It was simple and all about stories. I suppose all songs are stories but
it was just so easy going. If I could find older singers that sound like Marty Williams. I'm not going to give up and I promise if I find it I'll
post it here. It's truly a classic. Maybe it wasn't a top hit back when it was listened to a lot. That may be why it's still hidden in the early
songs of yesteryear.

No clue about your song that your trying to look for. Though it would help if you describe what the song was about, a few lyrics you could remember
from it would probably help you find it much faster then what year it was possibly made in or its contemporaries that sound sort of the same.
On the song posting part, the easiest way is when you want to post a song from YouTube just copy the last letters and digits before and after the
equals sign = in the YouTube code. For instance this song, www.youtube.com... Click the YouTube button on the ATS reply
tab, and then copy & paste the last part into it...lfyux6jwqsk...and click OK.
