GUEST,Richie Lyr origin: Rock the Cradle Lucy (27) RE: Lyr origin: Rock the Cradle Lucy 24 Nov 06

Thanks Pete,

For some reason I think I may know you. As I remember you were from the Eden, NC area.

I agree that the two songs are different. I think maybe the title and some of the lyrics floated from Miss Lucy Long. I've played "Rock the Cradle Joe" for awhile now. I learned it from another Eden picker Doug Rorrer, Kinney's brother. I have the Skillet Licker's version which resembles Soldier's Joy, which I also play. I have the Cofer Brother's version lyrics somewhere which I can post.

Peace- It's not really a matter of time, even tho on my own I could probably trak down the info eventually. Here are two of the original questions that have not been answered:

Does anyone have the lyrics/recording of Joe Ayers' Miss Lucy Long/ Lucy Long? Joe Ayers version was referenced in the Wikipedia article. Anyone have Mainer's Mountaineer's lyrics?

The lyrics were posted to OLD UNCLE JOE CUT OFF HIS TOE but no info has been given about this nursery rhyme. Do other versions exsist? Where does the Uncle Joe rhyme come from?
