Subject: Lyrics meaning: Ride Behind (Memphis Jug Band)
From: KathyW
Date: 25 Mar 13 - 12:20 AM

I've gotten interested in the song "You May Leave But This Will Bring You Back" recorded in the 1930's by the Memphis Jug Band. The first two lines are:

"My father was a jockey, learned me to ride behind
You know by that, I got a job any time"

Does anyone know what it means to "ride behind" in this context?
