HD Harmon seeks to find story about his song
By Linda Waggener
Hershel David (HD) Harmon stopped by recently, saying he needed to find a story his former classmate Ed Waggener wrote about him and a song he'd written, back a few years ago. Harmon has a plan for the song "Take Me Back to Tompkinsville" in that City.
He said, "I went to first grade with Ed, failed third, so we got separated, then I quit in eighth. We reconnected not long before he passed and we remembered each other."
"Ed wrote a story about my song," he said, and he'd like to get the words to share in Monroe County.
He had composed those words on trips driving for Glen Breeding. Hershel said, "Breeding and Bobby Smith bid a job in Monroe County and as I was driving for them, the song came to mind."
Harmon said he is a lifelong Adair Countian, born in Bliss, KY July 11, 1946 about a mile from the Bliss, KY Post Office and Country Store. He said he was delivered by Dr. BJ Bolin and nurse Irene Gist. He calls himself, "A man after God's own heart, a man of the Holy Spirit."
Searching Columbia Magazine archives since has proved fruitful - Hershel, here's your song at this link: Poet of the People H.D. Harmon introduces Tompkinsville song by Ed Waggener in 2007.
