Gov. Beebe, Speaker Carter at Scaryoke: Where's the bootleg?

Gov. Mike Beebe and House Speaker Davy Carter  were scheduled to perform a duet last night during the Scaryoke fund-raiser for the Open Arms Shelter for abused children in Lonoke.

I'm disappointed to report no bootleg video has made its way to YouTube yet.

Beforehand, the song selection was top secret. Surely a reader can fill in that blank.

I was looking through the Conway/Loretta songbook for a good title, but nothing jumped out. "After the Fire is Gone?" Nah. Maybe June and Johnny Cash's "Oh What a Good Thing We Had."

Crowd-sourcing invited.

UPDATE: I've now added a photograph. And Gabe Holmstrom sends word that the duet sang George Strait's "Amarillo by Morning" and "Troubador." He notes the opening line of the latter:

"I still feel 25 most of the time
I still raise a little Cain with the boys"
