So how come you Hank Snow fans don't want to copy a song into the thread, to make sure it will be saved for posterity?

Copied from http://home.kabelfoon.nl/~pjkuijve/#ANY OLD TIME:

ANY OLD TIME
(Jimmie Rodgers)

Oh, ley-he-ee, ah-le-oh-lay-he-he
D'yo-del-ay-he-he, d'yo-del-ay-hee.

I just received your letter. You're down-and-out, you say.
At first I thought I would tell you to travel on the other way.
But in my memory lingers all you once were to me.
I'm going to give you another chance to prove what you can be.

Any old time you want to come back home,
Drop me a line and say no mo' you'll roam.
You had your chance to play the game fair.
When you left me, sweetheart, you only left a load of care.

Now that you're down, I'm going to stick by you.
If you will only say your roaming days are through.
You'll find me here, like the day you left me alone
Any old time you want to come back home.

[Instrumental bridge -- mostly cornet, violin, clarinet]

You'll find me right here, like the day you left me alone
Any old time, you want to come back home.
(Home, home)

Artist: Jimmie Rodgers; Transcribed from Rounder CD 1057 "Jimmie Rodgers: "The Early Years, 1928-1929". Lyrics in this version, recorded in New York City, Feb. 21, 1929. Jimmy on solo vocal with a house orchestra of unknown violin, cornet, clarinet, tuba, piano, and trapman, and conducted by Leonard Joy.

Note, when Hank Snow recorded this song, he omitted verse 1 shown above.

I have commented very recently on the weird synchronicity of Mudcat. I was searching for these lyrics only yesterday, and found them. And now, the very next day... someone else is looking for them.

The first person I heard singing this was Maria Muldaur on her MIdnight At The Oasis album..

Cheers

Funny, but I just came across this song (for the first time in years) while browsing YouTube and looking for "Jimmy MacGregor." I noticed this title, as sung by Hank MacGregor, and wondered if it was the same song I have on my Maria Muldaur album.
Yup.
The thing is, I had no idea Jimmie Rodgers wrote and first sang it!

Also, this is a song I really need to add to my repertoire for retirement home gigs and for song circles and jams.   Glad I stumbled across it again.

Listen to Jimmie Rodgers sing
"Any Old Time"
.

(I'm not sure Jimmie wrote it, but apparently he was one of the first to record it.)

Here's Hank Snow singing the same song.

Here's Jimmie Rodgers singing his song, with a slide show of pics of that "Singing Brakeman" YouTube - Any Old Time

It's interesting how precisely and properly Jimmie pronounces the words; "going to," not "gonna"; "roaming," not "roamin'.    (He does sing "wanta," not "want to," though.) Nowadays people singing "country" or "blues" or a lot of "folk" (even pop and rock) seem to make a point of dropping a final "g" and so forth, and even lyric transcriptions and often song titles are written that way (e.g., "Do You Wanna Dance?").   Jimmie Rodgers didn't have to be deliberately sloppy to sound authentically country or folky.

Genie - you'll notice the same precision of diction with the early Sons Of The Pioneers and Roy Rogers too.

Now that you mention it, Seamus, yes.

BTW, in my posting of the lyric with chords, I was basing transcribing the lyrics from Maria Muldaur's version of the song, and she's not nearly as precise and proper in pronouncing things like "going to" as Jimmie Rodgers was.    I actually prefer using the 'slangier' pronunciation, and Maria's version is bluesier, but I also appreciate Jimmie Rodgers's original.
