“Love’s Gonna Live Here” was a huge hit for Buck Owens in 1963. It spent 16 weeks at #1 on the Hot Country Singles chart, and after that, it was 49 years before another song would spend even 10 weeks at #1. I like the way it sounds clawhammer style so that’s the way I played it but, of course, you can just strum normally if you prefer. Just as a little intro I did a hammer-on on the 3rd string 4th fret with my pinkie while playing the G chord. Feel free to ignore that if you want to. Other than that it’s just straight clawhammer accompaniment.
John Prine is my favorite songwriter of all time thanks to his quirky lyrics and simple melodies. This is one of my favorites. According to a John Prine biographer, Spanish Pipedream is “a hilarious Age of Aquarius anthem, the hippie commune ideal summed up in less than four minutes.”
