Confession Mondays: Talkin’ Tim Shields Blues

May 11, 2009

My dad wrote a song many years ago that he called “Talkin’ Tim Shields Blues.” He wrote it in an hour or so and he played it all the time for us when we were kids. There is a rumor that  Jimmy Ibbotson (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band) played this song one night for Jerry Garcia (The Grateful Dead) who loved it and ended up playing it out one night in a very small venue.

    Doug and I wrote a song called “Cat and the Cow” it’s so prestigious that no one has ever heard it

    What Doug failed to tell you was that he showed it to me and I passed it on to the Jonas Brothers. They’re covering it the next time they tour. 🙂

    I knew your Dad when he wrote that song. Tell him I said hi.

      Hi Bev, How did you know him? That’s awesome. I love hearing stories and memories from those days. Sadly, my dad passed away in 2004.
