Transcription Mystery Disc #228
It's So Hard to Walk the Straight and Narrow Way
This is a christian country tune presumably called "It's So Hard to Walk the Straight and Narrow Way." The lyric is a reference to Matthew 7:13-14. The lyrics and arrangement appear to be originals. It's a shame the disc is unlabeled. The song consists of voice accordion, guitar and piano. The harmonies are quite competent. They are not local hacks, this was an experienced, road-worn band. The recording ends with an eruption of applause making me suspect this is another live radio recording.
