I Wish I Were A Single Girl Again

“When I was single, I went dressed up so fine! Now I am married Lord and I go ragged all the time…” etc. this song was performed by various artists, for example by Lulu Belle & Scotty (with banjo and fiddle), by Roscoe Holcomb (with good photo slide show) or (my favorite version) by Eva Cassidy (with a good picture slide show too!). Listen to my fingerpicking guitar instrumental uploaded to soundcloud as my tribute to Eva Cassidy R.I.P.:
