Roy Acuff also did this one. He did it in 3/4 time.

From: Louie Roy

My version of the Blue Ridge Mountain Blues is similar to Bills in Alabama, but a little bit more complete and gives credit to Riley Puckett.

When I was young and in my prime
I left my home in Caroline
Now all I do is sit and pine
For all the folks I left behind
I've got the blue ridge mountain blues
And I'll stand right here and say
My grip is packed to travel and I'm tracking gravel
For the blue idge far away

I see a window with a light
I see two heads of snowy white
I seem to hear them both recite
;O; where is our wandering boy tonight?
I've got the blue ridge mountain blues
Where the sad pine tree does sway
And now I'm going to wander to the folks out yonder
To that blue ridge far away

I know the day that I return
There'll be a shindig in the barn
People from miles around will form
There'll be some fiddlin too gosh darn
I've got the blue ridge mountain blues
And I'll stand right here and say
That every day I'm counting till I climb that mountain
On the blue ridge far away

I'm going to do right by my ma
I'm going to do right by my pa
I'll hang around the cabin door, no work or worry anymore
I've got the blue ridge mountain blues
I want to hear that old hound dog bay
I want to hunt the possum,where the corn tops blossom
On that blue ridge far away

Louie Roy

Which one, Kendall? Is this (click) the Ramshackle Shack you are looking for? Probably not, as it is a new poem (not song) written after 9/11. It's a neat poem anyway. I'll keep looking for the one you want.

Possibly looking for Sparkling Brown Eyes as done by Webb Pierce and The Wilburn Brothers.

See, garg, that is why I didn't post it. It's a NEW POEM--not an OLD SONG--so you aren't getting to me this way again, buster. You wanna post it, you follow the link. I think I do much, much more song postings than you do anyway. Bugger off, Greg. We thought that we were either rid of you or that more lately you had reformed. I see that neither is true. Call me on Land Line--it's easily available--or shut up. If you call, you'll be lucky if it's me that answers. I'm a lot more forgiving than my daugher or husband.

The phrase “ramshackle shack” is also found in the old bluegrass standard “BLUE RIDGE CABIN HOME”

Now my thoughts wander back to that ramshackle shack...

Probably not the song being requested but another cross reference for the phrase.

Subject: Lyr Add: RAMSHACKLE SHACK (J. E. Mainer)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 20 Jan 11 - 09:13 AM

This song can be heard on YouTube:

RAMSHACKLE SHACK
As sung by J. E. Mainer & His Mountaineers

CHORUS: There's a ramshackle shack down in ol' Caroline
That's calling me back to that girl of mine.
If I had wings like a beautiful dove,
I'd fly away to the girl I love.

1. When the whippoorwill calls on the hill far away,
I'll sing the song that she will say:
"My love for you will never die"
When I bid farewell, then a sad goodbye.

2. When it's harvest time down in ol' Caroline,
I'll be drifting back to that gal of mine.
I'll spend my days with the one I love
By the help of God up in heaven above.

There's a ramshackle shack in old Caroline
That's calling me back to the girl of mine
Her two brown eyes I'm longing to see
For the girl of my dreams she will always be.
