Dance to the instrumentals “Weepin’Willow Twist” and “Wildwood Twist” from 60’s Party Dances and “Texas Twist” from Boys of Country.
Listen to the fast and frantic instrumentals “Under the Double Eagle” from Legends of Country Music: The Best of Austin City Limits, “Black Sapphire” from Roy Clark Live!, and “Twelfth Street Rag” from Classic Folk Masters.
Hear Roy play violin (otherwise known as the fiddle) on the lively “Orange Blossom Special” from Roy Clark Live!.
Enjoy Roy’s vocals on this beautiful, melancholy song called “Yesterday When I Was Young” from The Best of Roy Clark. It is a song about being young and full of life and yet never thinking to stop and fall in love until it is too late.
Laugh along with “Too Pooped to Pop” from Roy Clark Live!, a cute song about a kernel of corn who is too tired to turn into popcorn.
And last “Thank God and Greyhound” from The Best of Roy Clark, a tongue-in-cheek song about a man done wrong by his woman and suddenly she’s leaving and he looks sad but inside he couldn’t be happier.
