    Thanks to our friends, Mary Lou Verbonac and Karen Ross, from the Huntsville Ukulele Group here in Ontario, for submitting this song for our BUG library! You can play along with the song in GCEA tuning if use the (C) songsheet and you put your capo on the 5th fret. On BUG night, we'll use the (G) songsheet. 

    The Moffatts consisted of Scott Moffatt and his brothers Bob, Clint, and Dave, who are triplets. Growing up in Tumbler Ridge and later Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, The Moffatts learned singing early in their lives and singing country music with their mother, Darlana and father, Frank Moffatt, first appearing on-stage in 1987. In 1992, after performing at large-scale country music festivals, the group was nominated for five awards by the British Columbia Country Music Association.n 1992, the Moffatt family moved to Branson, Missouri where they performed at the Osmonds theatre. In March 1993 they moved to Nashville, Tennessee where they became regulars on TNN's Nashville Now with Ralph Emery. In October, they joined the cast of the Country Tonite show at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas. In 1994 Country Tonite opened a new theatre in Branson and the Moffatts became a part of that cast. In June 1995 they released their first country album, titled The Moffatts. On July 3, 1995, they appeared on Good Morning America and performed "Guns of Love". In 1996, their parents divorced and they lived primarily with their father, who also managed the group until their 2001 break up.

    In 1996, The Moffatts collaborated with some of Nashville's finest tunesmiths which led to the recording of an album A Moffat Christmas where this little ditty comes from!  (Wikipedia)
