I just posted a song on my sound cloud page. The image I used was a pic of my Great, Great Uncle Charlie Murray. He was a silent film star. This is the link: https://soundcloud.com/user-667419260/uncle-roy-quit-drinkin-mastered-mix
It is a bit humorous, and I've had a couple buddies spew beer out their nose when it gets to the chorus. I came across some information about him while searching for his picture. Some things I did not know. I'll post it below if you feel like reading more.
Thanks, I'm still seeking co-writers. Rich Murray

Charlie Murray - Silent Film Star that made over 250 movies.
He was a popular and lovable guy in Hollywood who had a busy and successful career. Murray was an exceptionally mischievous child who the towns folk nicknamed “Sinner.”
Never a fan of school, Murray sold papers and developed a fascination with the theater. Around the tender age of 11 he left home to follow his dream of “trodding the boards.” He joined circuses and Indian medicine shows, and by the time he was a teen had already worked as a clown, acrobat, and daredevil rider. Then came Hollywood baby. It was a perfect career move–Sennett’s Keystone Film Company was the biggest comedy draw in theaters by then, top comic Ford Sterling had recently left, and a pro like Murray was an ideal fit for its loopy, energetic, fast-paced environment. Murray brought 30 years of showbiz experience to the table, complete with an unshakable screen presence. His large, expressive face, with strong features including a mouth that could make him resemble a child’s drawing of a sad stick man, made a memorable screen impression and he soon became a favorite with audiences. (And many of them no doubt recognized him from vaudeville.) Murray was dubbed “Hogan,” playing an often-drunk laborer causing chaos in the homes of the elite. These films had titles like Hogan’s Mussy Job, Hogan’s Aristocratic Dream, and Hogan’s Wild Oats. During the 1910s Murray was frequently at hand to be the master of ceremonies at various Hollywood events, including benefits for the Actors’ Fund. He also donated his fundraising services to the Red Cross during WWI. Murray may have taken the most pride in one thing: his long and happy marriage to fellow vaudevillian Nellie Bae Hamilton. In a 1917 Photoplay interview peppered with jokes (“I never smoked opium, but smoked herring is a passion with me”), he talks about her with nothing but love and affection. The two had wed in Muncie, Indiana in 1906, and their marriage lasted until his death from pneumonia in 1941. He was a one of a kind guy, and his legendary wit can still be felt in written anecdotes and old publicity stories. Film credits can be found here:
www.imdb.com/name/nm0614879/ It's Pretty Freaking Impressive!

The Evening Statesman, November 8, 1907.
The Indianapolis News, April 4, 1932.

Thanks man. I loved your comment on my JPF Humor post. It's a shame more folks don't gather here. About a decade ago ( more less ) I met some long term friends from Nashville on here. I did listen to a few of your songs and I intend to listen to more as I find the time. You definitely have the sense of humor I enjoy in your writing. Carry On....
Rich Murray

P.S. I've added to my sound cloud account. Y'all please check it out, and listen to the whole play list if you can. Thanks for listening. Rich Murray

Cool song and your great, great uncle looks like he was a hardworking actor. Wow, he was the lead in the silent Wizard of Oz! Would be cool to hear this song on a clip reel of his work.

What fun that was!
Well written and infectious.


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.
