This album is a gorgeous mix of music performed by what I would deem a National Treasure. I saw this man play live this year (2005) and he can even make the uke strings sound like a drum!
I saw you last night and got that old feeling When you came in sight I got that old feeling The moment you came by I felt a thrill And when you caught my eye My heart stood still. George Formby - When I'm Cleaning Windows chords lyrics
