Are You Lonesome Tonight, Part One
Not long after that, Bernie had the ukulele out and was playing Are You Lonesome Tonight. Not singing; just playing. I love when he plays the ukulele! So did Suzie – I could tell from the expression on her face.
“Aren’t you going to sing?” she said.
“Well, uh,” said Bernie.
Come on, Bernie – sing! Bernie’s got a great voice, maybe not like Elmore James or Hank Williams, two of our favorites, but still pretty good. He played a nice little run, and then opened his mouth to sing, but at that moment there was a knock on the door. Bernie went and opened it, and there was Lieutenant Stine. Has he come up already? I know he’s important in Thereby Hangs A Tail. Is that in the stores yet? There’s so much to keep track of!
Lieutenant Stine has a hard, thin face, and watchful eyes, and doesn’t smile much. He wasn’t smiling now. “Need a word with you, Bernie.”
Note to Diane B.: Elvis Gospel is on XM/Sirius Radio Sundays at 8 AM.
