"The Manhattan Minstrel" Eddy Davis playing and singing an 1884 song credited to Baker Bradford. Believed to be based on another song called "Down By The River Liv'd A Maiden" by H. S. Thompson 1863. It's in the John Ford film "My Darling Clementine" starring Henry Fonda. Davis plays it on his custom OME 12" head, 17 fret finger board tenor banjo.
I love these old Ballads -- I hope it shows. Eddy
It shows! Thanks for bringing new life to these songs.
These old folks tunes are fun to play. Nice job, Eddy!
I play this in my three finger style,but I don't know if our chord charts would match .Cool old timer there.
