GUEST,keberoxu Lyr Req: Flowers on the Wall (Statler Brothers) (8) RE: Lyr Req: Flowers on the Wall (Statler Brothers) 26 Apr 20

I remember this hit record ... which dates me, I know.
I remember the banjo that comes twanging in on the words
"Counting Flowers On the Wall ..."

and the bass voice that hits the downbeat,
in front of the other voices' backbeat,
with the single "KANG!"
of "Kangaroo."

That bass voice belonged to the founding Statler Brother
named Harold Reid,
and he has just died after a long illness.
