In his all too short recording career, Jimmie rarely used banjo in arrangements. When he did, it was usually plectrum, not 5 string. So we went with a Carter Family/Poole arrangement. We got real jolt out of using our depression era instruments. Of course Linda Jo is the vocalist, not me.

I love hearing this--one of my favorite songs. Nice job.

Thanks for your kind words! My wife, Linda Jo is both a train buff and a huge Jimmie Rodgers fan. The banjo did not get picked up as clearly as I would have liked, but on the other hand the recording does show off Linda Jo's fine guitar playing and the sound of her old arc-top guitar. Thanks again.

What a great performance! There's not enough yodeling in old-time music! One of my favorite Jimmy Rodger's songs. I tried bringing this song fo the C & W jam I attend every Wednesday night, but they were too used to the slicked-up, straightened-out modern country version, and couldn't follow it.
