Hi Everyone,
It's been a while. I am still plunking away on the banjo.

I have a poor (audio) quality recording of Uncle Dave doing Hill Billie Blues and I can get some of the words but it's really hard. Does anyone have that one down?

It has such a great feel that song!

I guess it HAS been, LG. Seven+ years! I have a bunch of UDM stuff stashed away, but apparently not on anything connected to this computer at the moment. I won't promise, but I'll try to look for it when I get time.

At the very least, I've moved your request up to the top.

Welcome back.

This is what I have for Macon's version of Hesitation Blues:

Uncle Dave Macon Vo 5051

I am Billie and I live in the hills,
I can whistle and sing like a Whippoorwill,
Come across the mountain, just down in the holler,
To see my little Dony, just as sweet as she can waller.

Chorus: Oh, tell me how long, must I wait?
Lord, I get you now, or Lord I hesitate.

Hello sig, what's the matter with the line,
I can't talk to that girl of mine,
Storm last night blew all the poles down,
I can't talk to my Saro Brown. Chorus

As long as a-bacon is thirty cents a pound,
I'm going to eat a rabbit if I have to run him down,
Ice cream cone, T-bone steak,
You want to win a women get a Cadillac eight. Chorus

I been in the city and I been in the town,
I been in the mountains with the blues falling down,
Jumped in the river and I thought I would drown,
I spied a red-headed woman and I couldn't go down. Chorus

Whiskey, whiskey, I'm going to let you be,
The bone dry law made a Christian out of me,
Going to Oklahoma to marry me a squaw,
I'll have a big chief for a daddy-in-law. Chorus

Got water in the ocean, there's water in the sea,
Since I'm bone dry, its been water for me,
Been on the Southern, the Seaboard too,
It takes a Henry Ford for to shake me and you. Chorus

Oh, me and my partner, we both went to bed,
The jug of white lightning right under my head,
When I woke up the stopper was pulled,
My jug it was empty, but my partner was full.
