I Watched 'em and I Always Knew

Artist: Bobby Bridger

Album: And I Wanted to Sing for the People

Song: "Hopalong Cassidy and Gabby Hayes"

I had questions during the recent media coverage of the Apollo 11 anniversary. What defines a hero, great talent or great determination? Is the awe found in ability ("can do") or execution ("will do")? While I doubt a young Bobby Bridger had such thoughts while sitting in a dark movie theater, cowboys and outlaws flickering on the screen, he does capture the pure exuberance of childhood.
