Subject: Lyr Add: BACK UP AND PUSH (from June Carter Cash)
From: GUEST,Marcy

Hi you all. I'm curious about the lyrics to the fiddle tune Back Up And Push. The only one I've found who performs the song with vocals is June Carter Cash. Here's the video...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOmTBPoMIL0
Are these traditional lyrics and has anyone else recorded them? The words are...

BACK UP AND PUSH
(As recorded by June Carter Cash)

Do you ever wonder about the riddle,
What kind of spirit lives in a fiddle?
Well that's old Satan right there waiting.
Or are you tuned with the angel band?

CHORUS:
You back up and push, back up and push,
Back off from glory in.
You can't go wrong singing this song.
Back up and push away.

Verse 2:
If you let the devil play on your senses
Prepare to suffer the consequences.
The foolish measure of worldly pleasure
Can only drag you to the roaring fire.
CHORUS


Just curious if anyone's heard these words or knows when they were written.

Thanks so much. I checked out these versions--or at least the ones I could find--and they seem to be instrumentals. It's a puzzle to me where the words came in and why they're not used more often.

Look on Youtube, too. It's an often overlooked resource.

The tune for "Back Up & Push" is actually one strain from the ragtime piano piece "Creole Belles". Several songs have been sung to it, listen to Mississippi John Hurt for a couple. It is also as a kids skipping song and has been recorded as "Rubber Dolly Rag".
