Subject: RE: Hobo Bill's Last Ride
I really like Jerry Jeff's Night Rider's Lament, and it was kind of a " kind' joke about his yodeling. Jerry handles the yodel just a bit different than a lot of folks. Mike Burton's composition was done by many people and every one of them is good.....Bok, Muir & Trickett, Suzy Boggus and on the Nancy Griffith version Don Edwards puts the emphasis on yodeling. No offense Tiger, I have quite a few of Jerry's older albums and I play them quite often. Also Ian Tyson covered that song........
