"At the Country Store"
Please be patient with my posting the
King Arthur video. It's on an old VHS tape and I'm having
some difficulty in transferring it to a DVD because of the condition of the
tape. It's worth watching thus the extra effort.
Bear with me----it will happen.

EXPOSURE TO EDDY ARNOLD'S MUSIC MAY BECOME ADDICTIVE. PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK!
In 1960, Francis Gary Powers, was flying an American spy airplane over Russia. It was shot down and Powers was captured, tried and imprisoned by the Russians.
After the incident, Eddy Arnold recorded the following song:
"There's A Star Spangled BannerWaving Somewhere" recorded on May 31, 1960 by RCA.
Recently, Eva Queen posted the following comments in the Guest Book:
I was just listening to Eddy' s song "There's A Star Spangled Banner Waving Somewhere" again and I don't know if you knew that "Red River" Dave McEnery wrote that first part and added it to the original "There's A Star Spangled Banner Waving Somewhere". When I was growing up he lived on the street behind us and down about a half a block and my younger sisters and brothers trick or treated his house on Halloween. He was very nice. That was in San Antonio, Texas. I have a picture of him with his gitjo that he played. Just thought you might like to know who wrote that first part about Francis Gary Powers.
Eva: I did not know about this and I appreciate your sharinng this interesting information with me and all the visitors to this website. Bill Comer
Bill, I just listened to Eddy sing the song you posted about Gary Powers.
Beautiful! I never heard it before. HIS INFORMATt Book

What do you know about the following Eddy Arnold Song?
I recorded this one song on a CD years ago and I do not remember where I downloaded it from.
Do you know when it was released or any other information about the song?
If so, please inform me via Guest Book.
I have heard it many times but I just simply cannot get a handle on it.
My age is sneaking up on this old man. Bill Comer, Webmaster

THE GUY IN THE GLASS
When you get what you want in your struggle for self.
And the World makes you King for a day.
Just go to a mirror and look at yourself,
and see what that guy has to say.
For it isn't your Father or Mother or Wife,
who's judgement upon you must pass.
The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life,
is the one staring back from the glass.
Some people might think you're a straight shooting chum,
And call you a wonderful guy.
But the guy in the glass says you're only a bum,
If you can't look him straight in the eye.
He's the fellow to please, never mind all the rest
For he's with you clear to the end.
And you've passed your most dangerous test
If the guy in the glass is your friend.
You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years
And get pats on the back as you pass.
But your final reward will be heartache and tears, if you can't face THE GUY IN THE GLASS !!!
Author / Dale Wimbrow / 1934
Thank you Don Stewart for sharing this poem with Eddy Arnold Fans!--- Bill Comer, Webmaster

POSTINGS FROM EDDY ARNOLD FANS
Some long-forgotten reporter quoted Eddy Arnold's aspirations decades ago in a newspaper that's now tattered and yellowed with time: "When I finally put my guitar in the case the last time, I want to be remembered just as a singer, not a country singer or pops singer---just a singer." His journey over many years and musical styles tells the story. Eddy Arnold accomplished his goal.
