In Their Words: “I like that song very much. The first time I heard it was on The Andy Griffith Show. It had that folksy bluegrass sound I love and I just liked it and wanted to learn it. It’s a great song because you can relate to it. Basically, it’s about what people have to deal with in everyday life, going to work, and going out in public. You know, people might be mistreated. Sometimes you feel bad and sometimes you have good days. This album includes songs that I’ve been playing over the years, old country blues I like to sit around the house and play. I had cousins that played, and uncles that played it. I hope people like it, I like it, I hope people can listen to it and enjoy it as much as I do.” — Gail Ceasar
