    ------ About the song Blackboard Of My Heart performed by Hank Thompson

Excellent timeless song that continues to get attributed to Hank Thompson. He was indeed the performer of the song but Lyle Gaston, not Hank Thompson, wrote the song.

    ------ About the song Let Me Call You Sweetheart performed by Hank Thompson

Who wrote the original lyrics to this song? My grandmother wrote a song, with the title (let me call you sweetheart). She never had it published. This was back in the early 1900's. Her name was Hennerietta Newman.

    ------ About the song Blackboard Of My Heart performed by Hank Thompson

My uncle sang this song evey new year. I intended to look up this song to see how old it was. It's not as old as I thought
in 1960 I would have 12yars and it seemed like I remember him
sing it when I was much younger than that I've never heard anyone
in my 66years ever sing it besides my Uncle. He obviously liked

    ------ About the song Blue Skirt Waltz performed by Hank Thompson

Blue Skirt Waltz is the first song I remember hearing on the radio before television in 1949 I didn't know it was performed by Hank Thompson. I just thought it was a beautiful song & wonder if 1949 is the date it was recorded & played on radio stations.

    ------ About the song Whoa Sailor performed by Hank Thompson

The first time I heard this song, I loved it!! And to my recollection, I only heard it within the last two weeks or so. Hank definitely had a hit on his hands with this one. Great song, GREATER SINGER! I sure miss him. And I recently heard him sing with Jr. Brown - GREAT STUFF!!

    ------ About the song Glow-Worm performed by Hank Thompson

The link was sent to me by a Renku poet, when I contributed a verse about glow worms. We reminised on the glow worms of our childhood; mine, being French, were 'vers luisants'.

It is nice to discover one another culture this way. Such a hearty and light song, it put sunshine on my day.

    ------ About the song Glow-Worm performed by Hank Thompson

When I was a small girl, my Mom would sing this song to me (not ALL the lyrics) and I always loved it. I was reading an article in National Geographic regarding fireflies and suddenly the song came back to me. The song is wonderful and I am so happy I found this site and the lyrics. I'm sending copies to my sisters tomorrow. Our Mom passed in 2003, but she would have really been pleased to see all the lyrics to the song. Thanks for the memory!!
