jofield Help: Roll on Buddy (9) RE: Help: Roll on Buddy 19 Feb 00

Merle Travis had the most popular treatment of that phrase, but there was at least one other treatment by either the Blue Sky Boys or the Delmore Brothers:

Roll on buddy, roll, on, (2x)
You wouldn't roll so slow if you knew what I know,
Roll on, buddy, roll on.

Smiley Hobbs and company (Folkways - "Mountain Music Bluegrass Style") did a great twist on Merle's song by going up to the 4-chord first, then down to the 1.

Best, James.
