Thread Name: Your most recent 10 songs
Subject: RE: Your most recent 10 songs
My group has a weekly 90-minute gig, strictly instrumental.
We try to vary what we play, but most weeks, sometime in the evening, you're likely to hear:

Redwing
Westphalia Waltz
Wayfaring Stranger
Stone's Rag
Joe Turner Blues

I'll stop the instrumental list there, so I can mention five I'm most likely to sing on those rare occasions I'm asked:

Corinna, Corinna
I'll Fly Away
Life's Railway to Heaven
This World is not My Home
Rivers of Texas (Down By the Brazos)


Also, for those who might be interested, two of the songs attributed in postings above to the Carter Family, "Jimmie Brown the Newsboy," and "You've Been A Friend to Me," were written by W. S. Hays, a tidbit I discovered while researching another current thread "The Lily of the Valley."
