I can confirm that MY DREAMBOAT STRUCK A SNAG and OH BABE, both performed by Louie Innis & String Dusters, were issued in 1950 as a 78-rpm record, Mercury 6293.

MY DREAMBOAT STRUCK A SNAG has been reissued on the various-artists album "Hillbilly Bop, Boogie and the Honky Tonk Blues, Vol. 1: 1948-1950" Jasmine CD 3560, 2005.

There is another recording by Bob Eaton & The Lone Stars, on "Nashville, Vol. 2: Mason Dixie Boogie" and "Decca Hillbilly Volume 2"

I was able to transcribe this much from a sample:


...My sweetheart went and left me, then my troubles did begin.
My golden-laden dreamboat is gone now with the wind,
'Cause my dreamboat struck a snag an' my troubles are pourin' in.

When twenty-one, I married the sweetest thing in town.
She put right on my britches and then she slapped me down....

Thank you Jim, for all of that information on other recordings. I will try to get a transcription from one of the sources. Also thanks for the lines you transcribed. This is such a great site!
