Sleepy Sunday, Vol. 26

And so we have reached six months of Sleepy Sundays.

Hope you have been digging it. Please know that we have the blessing of Sleepy LaBeef, national treasure, to “keep it up!”

Today, Sleepy covers an Ernest Tubb tune from 1944. It’s also been covered by a young Glen Campbell and by Elvis Presley and the Statler Brothers.

It’s the title cut from Sleepy’s most recent studio album, and it makes the most of Sleepy’s big baritone voice.

“Tomorrow Never Comes,” Sleepy LaBeef, from “Tomorrow Never Comes,” 2000.

If you want to watch Ernest Tubb sing it, go here and here. I like Sleepy’s version better.
