My Favorite Old Time/Bluegrass song is ...

Recommended Posts

Mine has to be Billy in the Lowground. Of course I have plenty of favorites!

 

Here is Wayne Henderson showing how it is done on the guitar:

I also love:

 

Flop Eared Mule

 

Use to have an old Banjo,

It was all strung up with twine,

And the only song you could hear me sing was,

I wish that gal was mine.

Well, I wish that gal was mine, boys.

I wish that gal was mine,

And the only song you could hear me sing,

Was I wish that gal was mine.

 

Whoa mule, you kicking mule,

Whoa mule, I say,

I ain't got time to kiss you now,

My mule has run away.

 

Took my wife to the barn yard,

And I sit her down to supper,

Well, she got choked on a turkey leg,

And stuck her nose in the butter.

 

Stuck her nose in the butter,

Stuck her nose in the butter,

Well, she got choked on a turkey leg,

And stuck her nose in the butter.

 

Whoa mule, you kicking mule,

Whoa mule, I say,

Tie a knot in that old mules tail,

Before he runs away.

 

Your face is like a coffee pot,

Your nose is like a spout,

Your mouth is like a fireplace,

With all the ashes out.

 

Well, With all the ashes out, boys,

With all the ashes out,

Your mouth is like a fireplace,

With all the ashes out.

 

Whoa mule, you kicking mule,

Whoa mule, I say,

I ain't got time to kiss you now,

My mule has run away.

{REPEAT AND FADE}

Real bluegrass music doesn't have electric instruments, not to say you can use em though.

 

I saw the Del McCoury Band not that long ago.

 

He does a nice job on Richard Thompson's Vincent Black Lightning

I have also seen many modern Bluegrass bands like

OCMS. I have seen these guys a bunch of time, and hanging around the Grand Ol Opry the last few years has't hurt them on bit. Chatham County line is good too. Chris Thile might be the most technical mandolin player out there today.

 

 

My bluegrass buddies tell me drums are for marching bands. :D

 

What a great tune
