Thread Name: Lyr Req: Bread and Gravy
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Bread and Gravy
I just came back from a wonderful excursion into Arkansas to the newly opened "Johnny Cash's Boyhood Home." There was an early video of June Carter Cash and Joanne Cash singing this song circa 50's and I had to see what I could find out... I LOVE MUDCAT!!!!! You never fail me! I realize that my post comes almost 20 years after the first one but music lives forever.
In their version they use the phrase "chicken and gravy" first then bread and gravy and then lastly the gravy without bread. I love this progression.
