Lonesome 7-7203

‘Lonesome 7-7203′ a single recorded in 1962 by Hankshaw Hawkins is what we dial up for Day 46 of ’50 Miles in 50 Days.’

Written by Justin Tubb, the son of the legendary Texas Troubador Ernest Tubb, this song was well ahead of the curve.

Songs about the telephone have flooded the airwaves ever since.

From Tommy Tutone singing ’867-5309/Jenny’ to Raffi’s ‘Bananaphone,’ this was one of the trendsetters.
