I LIKE GOOD BLUEGRASS MUSIC
(Johnny Ringo & Fred Maddox)

I really like good bluegrass music

I wanna guitar pickin'
Banjo strummin'
Fiddles a-sawin'
I wanna hoedown rhythm
Wanna get with 'em
Man, that's really the thing for me

Yeah, I really like good bluegrass music
So listen buddy, tell you what to do
Take another listen and a-you may, too
You may like good bluegrass music

Some people don't like this kinda music (bluegrass music)
Some people want to knock it and abuse it (bluegrass music)
They wanna twist, twist, rock'n'roll
Doin' the twist just leaves me cold
I really like good bluegrass music

I wanna guitar pickin'
Banjo strummin'
Fiddles a-sawin'
I wanna hoedown rhythm
Wanna get with 'em
Man, that's really the thing for me

Yeah, I really like good bluegrass music
So listen buddy, tell you what to do
Take another listen and a-you may, too
You may like good bluegrass music

As recorded by Mac Wiseman on January 7th, 1963, on Capitol 4899

Reasonably sure that Fred Maddox is Rose Maddox brother who played bass and sang with the Maddox Brothers.

Rose Maddox recorded a Bluegrass album in 1962 but this song does not seem to be on it.

Seems reasonable to me! Interesting history. I can't seem to find any other recordings of the song, so maybe he helped write it for him. I also can't find anything about Johnny Ringo, so that's a dead end.

Other info for the recording:
Mac Wiseman-guitar and lead vocals
Raymond Q. 'Ray' Edenton-guitar
Charles 'Buck' Trent-Banjo
Joseph S. 'Joe' Zinkan-Bass
Murrey M. 'Buddy' Harman, Jr.-drums
Cecil Brower-fiddle
M. Carter-vocals
H. G. Stoker-vocals
Hoyt H. Hawkins-vocals
Neal Matthews-vocals
Hugh Gordon Stoker-vocals
Raymond C. Walker-vocals
Mildred 'Millie' Kirkham-vocals

Hey, Joe, could you please change the title for me? I accidentally called it "I Like Bluegrass Music," when it should be "I Like Good Bluegrass Music." Thanks, and sorry for the inconvenience.
    Did I done good? -Joe-
