Hello folks, My Dad bought this music when it first came out. It is now old & some what rotten from age. I've played Guitar for over (6o) years now. I can't remember like I used to as I must have thousands of songs in my head. This is the reason I want a newer copy. I thank you folks for the work you are putting into this great site.
"I play the saxophone and have been asked by my wife to play Peg of My Heart for her mother's 100th birthday party. Her name is Charlet (which she never liked) but her diseased husband called her Peg, after the song. "
