Jimmie Rodgers had an effect on lots of people back then. We can still appreciate him now.

Thanks, Tom. It was interesting to figure out the melody with my chordal orientation. I sang the words in my head. The Nashville Bluegrass Band does a beautiful version of it on one of their first albums when Mike Compton was still wearing a tie instead of overalls.

Lovely, Janet. I play fiddle on this one with my band, Longway, but never thought I'd hear such a nice banjo version !!
