My song today is ‘Walk Right Back’. This a 1961 song by Sonny Curtis that was recorded by ‘The Everly Brothers’, and it went to Number 7 on the U.S. ‘Billboard Hot 100’ chart. Overseas, the song went Number 1 on the ‘UK Singles Chart’ for three weeks. Originally it was the B-side, then it was changed to the A-side.
If there was one thing that I certainly inherited from my late father, it wasn’t his profound modesty but rather his downright stubbornness! I know that I am not as strict or as rigid in anything as my father was, but like him, once I make my mind up about doing something, I invariably stick to it.
And thereby lies the distinction which existed between my father and me. Insomuch as I would invariably stay determined in my resolve, ‘not change my mind;, my father ‘never would’, under any circumstances! Nothing would ever induce my father to waver once he had made up his mind, even if he began to doubt that he had been wrong initially. He would wrongly have considered such an act to represent a weakness of character.
While not being half as rigid as my dear late father was, my determination in anything I ever undertook would remain 100 percent resolute ‘if I genuinely considered myself to be in the right’. Subsequently, decisions I ever made would more than likely stay unchanged and there would be few regrets in my later life over most decisions I had ever made and no occasions if ever I walked away, I would ‘not’ as today’s song title suggest ever ‘Walk Right Back’!
Love and peace Bill xxx
