    General CommentThis particular song I happened to hear on the Legacy Edition Live at Sin-e' album. An awesome cover of A. Stroud's Be Your Husband . First song ,on the disc 1 and i simply love this tune. How he keeps the beat with his feet and hands , and wails out these great blues lyrics. Truely a treat for our ears. This song means alot to me, so much that i have opted to make it the first song I'll perform in future shows. Hey maggotbrain I really like it also. } : )

    General CommentI really love this song, when my sister and I go out driving we put it on as loud as possible. This year is my last year having sisters in the house, as next year they'll all be off to college, so I know that this song will bring back a lot of great memories.

    Just a phenomonal song all around.

    General CommentArent't the lyrics wrong? I thought it'd be "Love and honor you the rest of your life" in line 4
