    Western Swing Country tunes...



    I grew up with an Aunt and Uncle (by marriage) that used to be a small time Country Music touring act in the 40's and 50's. I used to play and sing this song around their house with them when I was a little kid.

    They used to do morning radio shows, county fairs, tent shows and even some carnival appearances. They had wonderful stories. A lifestyle that will never happen again.

    Ever heard the story behind that song?
    Jack Guthrie (supposedly) stole it from his 1st cousin Woody -who wrote it- and Jack had the hit.
    I didn't hear this song until the early '70s when Arlo Guthrie recorded it for his Last of The Brooklyn Cowboys masterpiece.
    Own the 79rpm by Jack Guthrie now.
    Or -I should amend- my WIFE owns it... she recently acquired it for her own 78rpm collection.
    Great stuff.
    Jimmy Wakely's records are a lot better than his B-westerns.

    Cool... no, I'd never heard that. Now that you told me that it makes me think about the lyrics... and it doesn't surprise me that it was written by a non-commercial song writer (Guthrie certainly wasn't) because it's got nice imagery, but not overly slick. I'll have to do some digging around, interesting.

    Here's later version ('61).

    Re: Roly Poly :btu:

    More vintage Western Swing...



    There's a bit of a nod to Cab Calloway here.

    This song makes me think of the house iI grew up in in the middle of nowhere in Oklahoma. Its such a simpler place.
