Young Man Blues, The Who

That's easy to fix; go out and get a job. Show up every day.  Don't steal from your employer.

Blue Tail Fly, Burl Ives.... a live performance. Interesting. When did the PC era actually begin? The vinyl records use the word "Boss." This version is (more)* traditional, and also very enjoyable with the audience participation.  *The Blue Tail Fly comes from the mid-Nineteenth Century and was a song used in minstrel shows.  Black dialect, as it was done in the Minstrel Era would be traditional.

Maggie's Farm, Flatt and Scruggs

Lester and Earl did an entire album of Bob Dylan and Johny Cash songs before they went their separate ways.  Look for Final Fling if you like this sort of music.

Bubbles; Campbell and Burr

This is one of he most depressing songs ever.  It's a nice tune, but it never should have made it as a popular song with its dreary theme.

Ain't Living Long Like This, Waylon Jennings

Our housebreaker/car thief had a two week continuance and will be in court on May 19 to announce his wishes for the plea deal or a trial.  He's been offered a heck of a discount on possible time and I hope he takes it.  I really don't want to have to testify along with the wife and her mother at a trial.  We'll update you all as soon as we know the news.

Best Of All....Kris Kristofferson

$100,000 In Pennies, Bobby Bare

A life of crime ain't what it's cracked up to be!  $100 in copper pennies weighs 65 pounds.  That's a problem!

Back Home In Hunstville Again, Bobby Bare

The guy who stole and wrecked two cars before he came to our door, broke our windows, and stole our car (and did not get shot by anyone) will stand in front of the judge on May 5 and decide whether he will enter a plea or stand trial. He brought in on himself, and he is a blessed man to be alive after his misadventures. Maybe there is a plan for him.

TB Blues, Jimmie Rodgers

The end of winter seems to have brought in bronchitis and pneumonia all around us.  We are fighting off the end of pneumonia in our house, and some of our friends have had it, too.  It's no fun at all.  At least you can beat it.  I wouldn't want to mess with TB.
