  2. You could tell when Jimmy Dickens sang about "take an old cold tater"
    or "sleepin' at the foot of the bed" he was relating actual experiences
    he had been through growing up a country boy. When Jimmy says
    "Did you ever sleep at the foot of the bed when the weather was
    whizzin' cold?" Man I can remember exactly how that was. The wind
    rattled the window panes and heat from the iron wood stove in the front
    room didn't reach upstairs. That stuff is one reason I moved to Florida
    soon as I could!

  3. I Just realized that this tune is based on a poem, by the same name, SLEEPIN' AT THE FOOT OF THE BED by poet Luther Patrick and can be found in the poetry book THE BEST LOVED POEMS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

  5. Amazing!
    I love the power in his voice. Man, what a singer!! From this man is said: He could sing without the aid if a microphone and you could hear him on the other side of the hill…..
    People like L.J.D. made CW to what it became: respectfull and emotional music for all times, all kind of people, all over the world… Thank you Jimmy !!
