Henson Cargill (February 5, 1941 - March 24, 2007) was a highly acclaimed Oklahoma-born country singer with a smooth baritone and a great deal of crossover appeal who became famous during the late 1960s. He is best known for the Grammy-nominated "Skip A Rope" (1967), a social commentary that holds parents accountable for teaching their children racism, tax evasion, and other immoral behavior. This smash, which topped the Country charts and made the Pop/Rock Top 40, was followed by a long string of hits on the Country charts through 1980 that also includes "Row Row Row" (1968), "None Of My Business" (1969), "The Most Uncomplicated Goodbye I've Ever Heard" (1970), "Some Old California Memory" (1973), and "Silence On The Line" (1979).
