Roy Clark was born in Meherrin, Virginia in 1933- he would have 52 country hit singles from 1963-89- sadly he is best remembered as one of the host of the cornball Hee-Haw television show. On the pop charts he had 6 Hot 100 singles with 1 making the Top 40 that was -the song he played at Mickey Mantle’s funeral- The Mick’s favorite song ” Yesterday, When I Was Young” #19 in 1969. “Thank God And Greyhound” peaked at #6 on the country charts. Roy moved around some growing up and he lived one year in the small town where I live- I’ve always wondered where he lived in town?
