Dave Guard

Story

 

An original member of the Kingston Trio, Dave Guard is usually the person credited with writing this song although he openly acknowledged that the actual songwriter’s name would probably forever go unknown. The story goes that baseball Hall of Famer Tom Seaver’s parents recalled first hearing the song in a piano lounge in Phoenix while on their honeymoon in 1932. They loved the tune and had the pianist write it down for them. Eventually, it became “their song.” Years later, Guard heard the song while visiting the Seaver home and went on to record it with the trio. And the rest, as they say, is history. The Seaver tie-in makes this a natural selection for Wayne and Judy, a couple of Chicago baseball aficionados. They evoke their Windy City hometown roots, taking a nice and easy Chicago-style bluesy stroll as they put their mark on this tune to make it their very own.
