Lil Dobro

Story Behind The Song

I got the idea one day while I was just playin my new and first dobro and thought to my self, I finally got a dobro and it made me think of my older brother Ronnie who had passed away a few years earlier but had been my 1st guitar instructor and taught me how to play. Anyway when I said Dobro I thought Dough Bro and said to myself what a cool hook and from there it moved forward. Whitfords General Store is a real place down in Oneco Ct and Hank Thomas Came up with using a place form where we both grew up and together we worked out the lyric.

You could the hear the music
On that fine spring afternoon
Had to be about 6 weeks
On the cooler side of June
2 Brothers playing guitar
On the porch of Whitfords General store
Folks tipped well when they liked a tune
But that Dobro always brought a little more

Well it started slow and they played along
Like they would on any given day
Well the older looked to the younger
Wiped his brow and just said Hey
I been workin on a Lone star thirst
But the cash is kinda low
The younger said I ain't got no money
But I do ,Do got a little Dobro

I aint got no money but I do have a little Dobro
When the musics' fine the sun will shine
And the crowd will surely grow
Tell everybody there's gonna be a rockin show
Ain't got no money but I do,do have a lil dobro

Folks came around from all side of town
There were record sales that day
Old man Whitford never smiled
But he was grinning wide and sayin
Boys come on back here any time
But leave your money at the door
All you got to do is sit on my porch and play
That Little Dobro

Repeat Chorus
