Luke’s Ukes #12: Sixteen Tons

As I juggle end-of-year marking with the preparation for my defense, I don’t expect to have a lot of time to update Luke’s Ukes over the next few weeks. Luckily, I spent part of Movember building up a little backlog for December while I handle these challenges.

This week’s song was meant to be part of the Movember push but didn’t get done in time. Tennessee Ernie Ford did not have a particularly happy life; the last twenty-five years of his life were consumed by alcoholism (Apparently being married to a woman named Betty Ford wasn’t a suitable substitute to actually going).

You can catch this week’s Lukes Ukes cover of Ford’s “Sixteen tons” here
