I'm sure this song will tug at a few heart strings....

I now have my Dad's fedora hat stored on the top shelf of my closet.

It's easy to forget what a great entertainer Chet Atkins was. Thanks for sharing the video.

Chet was my inspiration to play guitar. I still do fingerstyle in the Atkins manner. My dad would always wear a fedora. When I'd buy a new hat he liked he quickly talked me out of it. I miss those days and my wonderful father.

I sang that song at my Dad’s retirement party. (He was the head of safety research for General Motors). I could barely get through it. A gem.

I heard Chet singing this song in the eighties and it's called "I Still Can't Say Goodbye". If I remember right, it might've been the first time I heard of Chet, and he's one of my favorite guitar players.
