Tune Req: Shady Grove (Maybelle Carter)

DigiTrad:
ANCHORED IN LOVE
ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT?
ARE YOU TIRED OF ME MY DARLING
BLUE EYES
BUDDIES IN THE SADDLE
CHEWING GUM
DEAR COMPANION
DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH
GEORGIE ON THE IRT (parody on Engine 143)
GOD GAVE NOAH THE RAINBOW SIGN
GOLD WATCH AND CHAIN
I AIN'T GOT NO HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE
I CAN'T FEEL AT HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE
JUST A FEW MORE DAYS
LULU WALLS
RAILROADING ON THE GREAT DIVIDE
SAILOR ON THE DEEP BLUE SEA
SINGLE GIRL
THE CUBAN SOLDIER
THE LITTLE GYPSY GIRL
THE STORMS ARE ON THE OCEAN
THE WRECK ON THE C & O
WAVES ON THE SEA
YOU ARE MY FLOWER

Subject: Maybelle Carter's Shady Grove
From: Áine
Date: 20 Mar 02 - 08:14 PM

Do any of you 'Catters have a recording of Maybelle Carter singing/playing this song (that you could share, of course)? I ran across a TAB version for guitar, but it sure doesn't sound like the Shady Grove I know. 'Course, it could just be the way I'm playin' it -- but, I used to be able to read music ... ;-) Any help would be mighty appreciated.

All the best, Áine

Rats. It's not in the Honking Duck site of online recordings!

Try a PM to Pete Peterson-- let me know if no reply, he is away from the puder a lot-- he has a lot of Carter stuff on the shelf. And no I WILL not give his address out to 'Cat burglars!

Weezie, what in the world is 'Honking Duck'?? Is that some kinda code, or somethin'? ;-)

Thanks for checking, Dicho, I really appreciate it.

And I tried that site, Louie Roy, but it was just lyrics. But thanks for link, I'm sure I'll be using it in the future.

I talked to Amos last night, and he thinks that the TAB song I found could possibly be a version of 'Betty Anne' in a minor key.

So, does anyone know where I can find a soundfile or recording of 'Betty Anne'??

Thanks for the help, Áine

Aine, I'm sorry-- I forget you were gone awhile. Honking Duck is a fantastic site someone found and posted here awhile back, and we all got pretty excited about it. My post above was meant to save people the time to go look there.

Listen to Old Time Music from 78s!

Get comfy, you may be there for awhile! *G*

In all my years of listening and loving Carter Family music, I never heard any of them sing/play, "Shady Grove." That's not to say they didn't, but if they did, it certainly was not often. Let us hear, if it can be found? Jean

Hmm, the DT's Betty Anne is what I knew as Fly Around Pretty Little Miss. In western Arkansas, I heard it at square dances in the 40s and 50s. Never til now connected it with Shady Grove -- sheeesh!

On Uncle Henry's site, I found a reference to a recording by the Pine River Boys and Maybelle called Pig in the Pen- listed as a var.? of Shady Grove?? A 1954 LP. This may (or may not) help.

Not much info. Pig Pen
Item no. 11 under Pig in the Pen, Pine River Boys with Maybelle. Outback, Heritage (Galax)003(III), LP 1974, cut# B.002. Don't comprehend all of this but you may know more or know where to go from there.

Well, got the Pig traced down. Still don't know if it is the one you want, but look at this: All Pig
Under others, note item beginning Outback. Also note first and last items. Looks like this one dates to the 1930s as far as recording goes.
