And Honey I Miss You
This is a really sad song that I could not fully understand the grief when I first heard it. Who was 'Honey'? How old was she? How did she die? There was no clue in the lyrics and the song remained a haunting favorite of mine. Listening to it sends the shiver down my spine and the feeling of intense loneliness of losing a very dear one.
Bobby Goldsboro sang it exceptionally well through his quivering and strong voice. It was released in 1968 and immediately rose to #1 in the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart selling over a million copies. It was possibly Bobby's most successful hit. Bobby is 70 now and sells paintings. Check HERE.
