Here's one I play every Christmas. Originally recorded by John Denver, I like this version.

That's one of the few Christmas songs that I play. Here's another that breaks my heart every time I listen. I play this too, but without the grace, skill, or aplomb of Mr. McCutcheon (a Charlottesville, VA fellow).  There are two lines that really get me "these sons and fathers far away from home," and the second one is in the second to last verse. Listen to it and I think you'll know which it is if you know me at all. It ends with the word "sights".  I guess the very last line of the song also gets me right in the feels, too.

Here's another that I play. It's also from John Denver.  It is typical of me that I recognize that the math only works in narrowly defined circumstances.

Thanks for posting the song Derek. Jennifer and I attended Mass on Christmas morning and the subject of the sermon that the priest gave was "Christmas in the trenches 1914".

Zurf,
That's another song I play although Jennifer thinks its a terrible song to play at Christmas. It inspired me to write a song called "Family Blood" which I think you've heard me play - the hook is "Daddy's liquor must be thicker than our family blood".

Hope your family had a wonderful Christmas big guy, although I'm sure it was tempered by missing your father. I hope we get a chance to do some pickin' together again this year.
