Flood walls are up, roads are closed, and I’m thankful this is rain and not snow, or else we’d be at about the three foot mark right now. Just another late winter in the Ohio Valley. (The weather radio says we’re just about normal for rainfall for the year thus far...with flood warnings all up and down the Ohio River!) Let me flood your ears with another great #1 song from my lifetime. We’re up to 1962 in country music, and here’s one that everyone has heard of. 1962 (Country): She’s Got You - Patsy Cline And, for the third day in a row, I’ve probably used a country song that even @LoriAMoore knows! There are times when superlatives are woefully inadequate. This is one of those times. This song hit #1 less than a year before Patsy Cline’s death. A match made in heaven: the terrific songwriting of Hank Cochran, and the emotional, soulful voice of Patsy Cline. What more could you ask for? And some trivia: in the video linked below you’ll see Patsy with a headband across her forehead. That was to hide some ugly scars left on her after a serious car wreck. She reportedly told a friend after she was released from the hospital, “Hoss, I’ve survived two (wrecks). The third one’s either gonna be a charm, or it’s gonna kill me.” Sadly, it was the latter. She’s Got You Written by Hank Cochran Recorded by Patsy Cline From Sentimentally Yours, 1962 #1 for five weeks I’ve got your memory, or has it got me:

Even as a kid I adored Patsy. Nobody could lilt their voice the way she did. BTW, your situation reminded me of this song. He was one of my favorites too.
