Please Don’t Talk About Me When I’m Gone

Please Don’t Talk About Me When I’m Gone—S. Clare/S.H. Stept, 1930 (Recorded March 4, 2011) Here’s an old charmer about the break up of a love affair, with a plea for the other party not to gossip about intimate details of the faded relationship. This is another tune I learned early on in my uking career, and I remember singing it to my dad as he lay dying from oat-cell carcinoma of the lungs. Don’t smoke terbacky, kids! Everybody famous sang this one, but my all-time favorite is by the greatest of them all, Ethel Waters.

I’m dedicating this to two buddies of mine who lost a couple of close relatives in recent weeks. Hang in there, guys. When our loved-ones die, we are left to keep their legacies alive for the rest of the world to remember.

Nice collection of tunes Patsy. I really like the intros and the arrangements. Like a lot of us players, I wish I had your knack. I’m looking forward to the rest of the hundred. Cheers! ;-)>
