Genre: Traditional / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

A great old song which I play mostly in a two-finger picking style. The vocal harmonies are inspired by the fairly recent recording of this song by Robert Earl Keen and Natalie Maines of The (Dixie) Chicks.

Great version well done. I always liked the version by Bob Gibson. Thanks for posting.

Yes, Bob Gibson is an often overlooked seminal influence in the folk revival of the 1950s and 60s. He started as a long neck banjo player, but then became well known for his 12 string guitar playing. His recording of this song with Hamilton Camp was fantastic!

Whoops! “We’ll, Well, We’ll” was the Bob Gibson/Hamilton Camp song. I didn’t know that Gibson also sang “Wayfaring Stranger”. Burl Ives made the most well-known recording at the very early days of the folk revival in the early 1950s, so I am not surprised that Gibson would later cover it.
