He’ll Have to Go

He’ll Have to Go—J. Allison/A. Allison, 1959 (Recorded February 2, 2012) I must post the video of this tune to show off the lovely western shirt my good friend in Arizona sent to me. Thanks, Brian! You are a man among cowboys.

This song was a huge hit for the great Jim Reeves in 1959. Gentleman Jim died in a plane crash on July 31, 1964, when he was only 40 years old. Country music and the world lost a fantastic singer that day.

I’ve also posted the mp3 of this tune over on the Box widget for your downloading convenience.

Great rendition, Tex!! I couldn’t wait to write and say, “Nice Shirt!,” but I guess that – after your ending – that would be redundant. Great minds . . .

All the best – Tom

Ha! We do think alike. The tune is a great old Country chestnut. Pity about poor Jim Reeves, crashing his plane like that. Such a fine singer. Is there something about people named Reeve(s) and bad outcomes? Jim, George, Christopher?
