The Ballad of Tom Henke

bluejaysI wrote about Tom Henke yesterday and Stephanie suggested I insert "The Ballad of Tom Henke". I didn't want to bury such a great song in the comments, so this entry is all about "The Ballad of Tom Henke".

"The Ballad of Tom Henke" appeared on the same Blue Jays compilation that gave us "Jays to the Top", "Sunny Jays" and, of course, "OK Blue Jays (Let’s Play Ball!)".

Term-in-a-tor, Term-in-a-toooor...

Odeo is having temporary issues, if this audio isn't working for you right now, that's the reason...

Hmmmm, it seems to work in IE but it's not working in my Firefox. Anyone wanna tell me if they can hear this and what browser they're using?

I can hear it fine in FF 2.0 on Windows Vista.

That song remains me of "A Boy Named Sue" by Johnny Cash hehe

It's working for me in FF2 now. Musta been a temporary blip.

Yeah, it's definitely got that Boy Named Sue feel to it.

You can bring him in now but he's even better later.

That's gold, Jerry. Gold!

Just realized I wrote "remains me" there - don't know what I was thinking but maybe it has something to do with my lack of sleep :p.

Hey Mike, you have now made my life complete!!! I remember when I would only listen to this tape and the tape from `93. You definitely should send me every song from `92 and `93 *if you have them* thnx! You rock my blue jays sox!

"First thing you know, he's 7-0"

No he wasn't, that was Tom Filer. They completely blew a lyric on the wrong Tom!!!!

Man I remember these tapes, still got em, they dont make em like this anymore

I know the country ballad made sense for Tom because he's a small town country boy himself, but I thought it would have been awesome for him to come out Arnold Schwarzenegger's Terminator instrumental.
