I had a favorite song on that show that I think they played once every time. Guesses.

It wasn't 'In uomini, in soldati, sperare fedeltà?' from Mozart's comic opera "Cosi fan tutte," was it?

No, not that one but thank you for sharing that.

I went thru most of my life hearing only the instruments in every song and ignoring the words. In recent years, I've been  listening to the words much more.

That song of yours. I heard it played hundreds of times in the past but maybe because I'm old now, the words kicked in. Man, that's a depressing song!

But I'm sure lots of people can relate.

Very funny John!

Actually, I never really liked Hee Haw that much growing up but I think Mom had it on every week.

I found this skit/song very funny though and it stuck in my head.............. and I still sing it today:

"The show inspired a Broadway musical." I think it was more of a "Broadway style musical." It looks as though it only played in Dallas; an opening on Broadway was probably a pipe dream -- a corn cob one, most likely.

By the way, I listened to the song you were talking about earlier, and I was right -- it wasn't the Mozart! But I did notice quite a number of similarities, what with both being sung in text set to harmonized melody and so forth.

Roy Clark is one of the most talented banjo and guitar players (as well as other instruments) hands down.

I play a little guitar.  I saw him to a solo riff one time that was simply amazing and far beyond my abilities in even my wildest dreams in my best days.
