stumbled on this purely by accident a few minutes ago . One link led to another, and bingo. Fortunately we can still enjoy what the gent has given us musically; best of all we still have him as a damn good man.

Said it before and I'll say it again: KM has the best phrasing in music. Good one, Kendall. Beautiful take.

Gee, that was 28 years ago. Kendall sure looks young. Was I that young once?

I gotta say, though - Kendall sure ain't Emmylou.

Great job Kendall on a great song!
Speaking about other versions of the song Goebel Reeves yodelled when he recorded it. I don't think the yodelling added a thing but there were two other great verses that I had not heard before. I believe that they were the third and the last:

Do not let your heart be troubled
When the world calls you a bum
For if your mother lives she loves you
You'll always be your mother's son

When you die and go to Heaven
On every train that you will ride
The hard-boiled brakeman and the hobo
Sleep in peace there side by side

Reeves wrote it but I agree the yodeling did nothing for the song. In fact, it took away some of the poignancy. Kinda like yelling HEE HAW in the middle of Lorena.
In later years I also sang those two verses.

Guest999 I take that as a supreme compliment. That my friend.

I have to admit, I'm no Emmy Lou. Her rendition of Weary Hobo made me tear up thinking of my dear friend, Utah Phillips.

I can't say I was fond of her rendition, too much Emmy Lou. I like songs done straight where the singer is just the conductor, not trying to be a star at the expense of the song.

That should draw some flak.

Okay. Kendall's rendition was done at the expense of the song as well! Sitting in a chair with ARMS, playing a guitar in the best manner, sunglasses and either a Greek fisherman's cap or a beret (hard to picture the last), excellent phrasing and technique, never a false note...why, he's better than I am!

But that's not admitting much, I guess.

Okay, Mr. Morse -- was that enough flak?

I got an email from a man in NY state who used to MC Bluegrass festivals. He asked if I had any CDs that he could play on his radio program. I believe he's in the Albany area, name is Bill Knowlton.

White socks and white underwear. Take THAT to the bank! Well, light gray socks at least but DEFINATELY white under wear... trust me. And NEVER, NEVER, um, uh, nevermind. Think I'll watch the vids again. Good vids eh?

I ain't about to be mortified about white sox. A few years back I came accross some printed article claiming that synthetic fabric socks were healthier than cotton sox, especially for sweaty feet. I was in dress shirt and tie work at the time too, so I basically had a pile of black synthetic socks. At least 5 years ago now, my foot and shoe odor got to where it must have at least approached Spaw's
gas odor problem. I wear white cotton sox now except for maybe weddings and funerals, and have little or no odor problem. I'd rather have people snickering than backing away and gagging.
