Hey folks, I've been trying for quite some time to discern some lyrics in this Old Time tunes medley by Gid Tanner & Fate Norris, as well as identify some song titles.

Youtube Link Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSGfVejS7QA

What I've got so far:

The first one has a line "Down where those orange blossoms grow'' but doesn't seem to fit in to any settings of the song I've found on here,

I know the words and title to the second one, ''Born In A Mighty Bad Land''

The third one is Live In The High Way Till I Die

The last one I am having trouble identifying, I believe it mentions tobacco in the lyrics, and I have discerned: I learned down there in school one day, two and two make four, and here's a little bit, add it to what you've got, could you make just a little bit more. Anyone familiar with this tune? The only other time I have heard it is Columbia 150-D Chicken Don't Roost Too High For Me/I Don't Love Nobody Medley by Gid Tanner & Riley Puckett.

Youtube Link Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOTyVljVpfo

Thanks in advance Mudcatters!

The lyrics to both of those songs contain racial slurs that fun-loving southern mountain folk at that time thought were pretty cool, but which would be considered offensive today.

The lyrics to his best song, Tanner's Farm, are humorous without being offensive, and they're posted in a Mudcat thread as "Penny's Farm."

How in the world do you know that? Most of the lyrics are totally incomprehensible.

I have just posted "Girl From Tennessee," the song about the 'highways'.

Thought it was already in mudcat.

Q: That's not what the Skillet Lickers are singing.

leeneia: It's just a question of dialect, and I happen to be familiar with that one.

Just listened to "Tanner's Farm."

A few words are hard to catch, but from what I do hear, which is most all of them, and what I know of how words sound and fit into sentences, I can't hear anything "offensive" (i.e., racist) in the lyrics.

Tanner was born in 1885 in north central Georgia. He's got that Deep-South accent that used to be the stereotype ("Don' evvuh say 'nevvuh' own the rivvuh!"), but that nowadays you mostly hear further South and nearer the coast.

Even Jimmy Carter, born further South but nearly forty years later sounds less "old-fashioned" to me than does Tanner.
