The other day a friend asked me if I knew the song “Come and dine.” So I decided that I needed to learn it off by heart. After that I decided to listen to other people singing the song, and hence I came across the Happy Goodmans, and decided to do this post. I hope you like the songs I have chosen.
I love the steel guitar sound.
3. Born to die
I never grew up in America, so I never heard the Happy Goodmans “live” in concert.
11. I saw the light
Country gospel songs are my favorite type of music.
12. I saw the man
Pastor Marks lent me a record of Jimmy Swaggart singing this song, but some of the words are different. This is my favorite song when I play piano and sing.
18. Look for me
19. Poor rich man
When I was singing in Welkom, someone gave me a record of Bud Chambers singing this song.
20. Shoutin’ sounds
22. The Eastern Gate
23. The Potter
This song became very real to me when I was singing in Cape Town. Table Mountain just seems to dominate everything there.
I have seen the Happy Goodmans many times on the Bill Gaither shows.
28. Who am I
Pastor Marks lent me a record of Jimmy Swaggart singing this song when I was at college in Salisbury.
