Song Of The Day Challenge- Day 12- A Song From Your Childhood-“I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail”- Buck Owens. The first song I can remember flipping out about was when I was four or five- the song was “I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail”- by Buck Owens and The Buckaroos. I thought the song was about a tiger. I heard the song on the radio and eventually my parents bought the album for me. Buck Owens would be my first favorite- and the first three concerts I ever went to was to see Buck Owens at the Jamboree in Wheeling, West Virginia.
