SouthernCelt Origins: He Had a Long Chain On (Jimmie Driftwood) (30) Origins: 'Long Chain On' lyric credits 24 Nov 07

I've recently been getting into Robert Earl Keen, Jr.'s music and on one of his early albums he does "Long Chain On". The album credits the songwriter Jimmy Driftwood for the song. I've not researched Driftwood's career but I know he also wrote "Battle of New Orleans" made famous and an airplay hit by Johnny Horton back in the late 50s. Someone probably needs to add the lyric credit for "Long Chain On" to Driftwood in the database.

Love that song by the way. (I'm a fan of things with a sort of gothic, mysterious flavor.)
