Linda on “Hee Haw”? There she is being introduced by Roy Clark on the April 1, 1970 episode. This occurred during her country music phase. “Are my thoughts with you How twisted, babe, are they Since you went away babe I ain’t been thinking too straight” Even then she was singing mournful songs of love. “Are My Thoughts With You?” was written by Nashville Songwriter Hall of Famer Mickey Newbury (I know fourwalls will know all about him) and appears on Linda’s second solo album “Silk Purse.” The image quality of the clip is poor with faded color but there is nothing wrong with her “pipes.” She puts all her power and emotion into the song.
I am always looking for Hee Haw episodes. Anyone who wants to trade can contact me: ych1964@gmail.com

I know her, but unfamiliar with her music. I didn't listen to Country music because it was so mournful.

"Between Hank Williams' pain songs, Newbury's train songs, and 'Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain'...." Nope, never heard of him. Got no clue about this Linda person, either....

Her I know because I do like a couple of her songs she sings. Not familiar with that one though.

That's the thing with Hee Haw. The music acts are legends.
