I am not a HUGE country fan. The occasional song will reach out and grab me. This is one of those songs. It has not been released. This is the only version available.
Back story: My father, Dana Randolph Barker, was killed in Vietnam when I was seven weeks old. I have ONE picture that has both of us in it...the day he left for Vietnam. He is in his uniform, looking over my mom's shoulder as she holds me. I never sang for my father.
