Much like Lomax's "Sam Bass" is the version appearing in the "Oregonian" of Portland (Apr. 1, 1917). It was "Contributed by George L. Foster, of Dryad, Washington."

The only notable differences are:

"a teamster for to be"

"for he always drank 'red liquor'"

"a wilder bunch of cowboys"

"Joel Collins"

"they quickly met their doom"

"Four bolder, braver cowboys/ The ranchers never knew"

"Now Sam he is a corpse,/ And 'Piper's' under clay"

"And the only way he saw to win"

"Oh, won't there be a roundup / When Gabriel blows his horn!"

Lomax's final stanza is missing.

The Oregonian calls the song "a Texas classic."

With a family reunion in the Sandhills to look forward to (next year) I've been thinking a lot about green kool-aid, hollyhocks, asparagus hunting, branding time..and cowboys.
These cds are providing a fine soundtrack for all that thinking.

In this current round of listening, I got enchanted by 'for if your bovine goes lengthwise' when it caught my ear.
It won't be long before I'm romping around singing "If Your Saddle is Good and Tight"

Thanks again, Kat

JOLLY COPPERSMITH
C. Peter, 1890

1. I am the Jolly Coppersmith, / No one from care is free'r
So long as I have cash / To treat myself to beer,
I am the happiest man on earth / And sing both loud and long,
While each stroke of my hammer keeps / Time to my jovial song.

[ Wenn ich an meinem Ambos steh' und hämm're tüchtig d'rein,
und wenn mir nicht fehlet klein' Geld zu Bier und Wein,
dann bin ich der fidelste Mann, den man sich denken kann
und singe dann zum Ambosschlag, so laut ich singen kann: ]

[Chorus:]
La la la la...

2. And while I mend the pots and pans, / My sweetheart passes by
And peeps thro' the window / With looks so bright and shy,
The sunshine of her glances makes / Me "happy as a king,"
I care for no one, no, not I, / And that is why I sing.

[ Und schaut mein Schatz zum Fenster 'rein und lacht mich freundlich an,
so bin ich auf Erden der kreuzfidelste Mann!
Ihr Blick dringt mir wie Sonnenschein wohl in mein Herze dann,
ich hämm're auf mein Kupfer fein so lang ich hämmern kann! ]

3. And when my long day's work is done, / The moments quickly pass,
I sing to my sweetheart / And empty many a glass,
Thus day by day the hours roll by, / To me dull care's a myth,
I want no prouder title than / The Jolly Coppersmith!

[ Und will sich mir die Sorge nah'n ich klopf' ihr tüchtig auf,
und küsse mein Liebchen, und trink' ein Gläschen d'rauf!
Nicht Noth noch Sorge macht mir bang! Ich sing' ein munt'res Lied
und bleib' mein ganzes Leben lang der lust'ge Kupferschmied! ]

Back on 24 Oct 04, Jim Dixon identified one recording as possibly:
"Marc Williams: Jesse James / Little Joe the Wrangler, Brunswick 269, 1928."
While this may be the source of "Little Joe the Wrangler" on the CDs, "Jesse James" (track 2.6) was sung by Harry McClintock; it's identical to the recording on When I Was a Cowboy, Vol. 2.

Similarly, I can confirm:
1.11 Big Rock Candy Mountain - Harry McClintock; also on O Brother, Where Art Thou
1.15 Goodbye, Old Paint - Harry McClintock; also on When I Was a Cowboy, Vol. 1
1.19 The Strawberry Roan - Paul Hamblin; also on When I Was a Cowboy, Vol. 2
2.9 Sam Bass - Harry McClintock; also on When I Was a Cowboy, Vol. 1

Home on the Range (1.10): Ken Maynard sang and played this exactly the same way as Jules Allen (but up a step); see When I Was a Cowboy, Vol. 2. Don't know which came first.


Here's my reckoning of the attributions pulled together in this thread:
== CD 1 ==
1. Cowboy's Lament - sung by Harry "Haywire Mac" McClintock
2. I Learned About Women from Her - Frank Crumit; text: "The Ladies" by Rudyard Kipling
3. Peg Leg Jack - ? sung by Tex Morton; or Carson Robison and His Pioneers, 1929
4. If I Had My Druthers
5. Get Along, Little Dogies - sung by Harry McClintock, 1928
6. Here's to a Texas Ranger - sung by Carl T. Sprague, 1926
7. Lay Down, Dogies [cf. "Night Herding Song", written by Harry Stephens, c.1909]
8. Goin' Back to Texas
9. Days of '49 - sung by Jules Allen, 1928
10. Home on the Range - sung by Jules Allen, 1928
11. Big Rock Candy Mountain - Harry McClintock
12. A Tale of the Ticker - Frank Crumit, 1929
13. If Your Saddle Is Good and Tight - sung by Carl T. Sprague, 1926
14. Trail to Mexico - Harry McClintock, 1928
15. Goodbye, Old Paint - Harry McClintock
16. Little Joe, the Wrangler - ? Marc Williams, 1928; words: Howard N. "Jack" Thorp
17. Jack O'Diamonds [derived from "Rebel Soldier"]
18. Down by the Railroad Track - Frank Crumit
19. The Strawberry Roan - Paul Hamblin, 1930
20. King of Borneo - Frank Crumit, 1929
21. Under Dakota's Cross - sung by Paul Hamblin, 1930; by Wilf Carter?

== CD 2 ==
1. Abdul Abulbul Amir - sung by Frank Crumit, 1927; by Percy French, 1877
2. Return of Abdul Abulbul Amir - Frank Crumit, 1930
3. Dolan's Poker Party - Frank Crumit, 1928
4. Old Joe Clark
5. Jolly Coppersmith (Der Kreuzfidele Kupferschmied) - music by C. Peter, 1890
6. Jesse James - sung by Harry McClintock
7. Billy Venero - sung by Harry McClintock
8. Texas Rangers - sung by Harry McClintock
9. Sam Bass - sung by Harry McClintock
10. Old Chisolm Trail - sung by Harry McClintock
11. Frankie and Johnny - Frank Crumit, 1927
12. I'm Bettin' the Roll on Roamer - Frank Crumit, 1930
13. Ida Red
14. O'Hooligan's Ball - Frank Crumit, 1928
15. Bury Me Not on the Lone Prairie
16. Punchin' the Dough
17. Red River Valley
18. Jack of All Trades - sung by Bud Billings
19. Roving Gambler


Sheet music for "The King of Borneo" at the National Library of Australia. (They might have other Crumit songs.)

Sheet music for "Jolly Coppersmith" at the Indiana University Sheet Music Collections.

Okay, I can come up for air...got the rough draft of the novel done! So, I have a note to myself that the following people want these two CDs:

maeve
Mark Ross
Celtaddict
Melissa
Dick Greenhaus

I think the price back when ten bucks to me for cost of the blanks, envelopes and postage. I don't really care if it's money or trade. If oyu have a CD you think I'd like or something else, let me know and we'll see if we can work something out. I've already agreed to that with a couple of folks.

Dick, yours will be comps...you deserve all the thanks I can give and it will never be enough for what you provide in the DT etc.

The rest of you, if you are still interested, please PM me with your mailing addys. I will ask you all to still be patient. It will take me a little bit to get up to speed what with homemade gifts and all, too.:-)

As near as I can tell, I have all of the cuts listed in this thread on my harddrive. I listened to all that were in the file folders I found while I was writing and they sure sounded good, again. It was kind of neat since I was working on the novel based on my dad's oral history and these 78s belonged to the grandparents I was writing about!

Thanks,

It's kind of neat, I am at the part in my novel which comes to the ranch my dad grew up on, listening to these old songs is really bringing it all to mind...lets my imagination go all out!**bg**

HeyaDick, that sounds like a great idea! I have to find the files, first. I think I know which computer they are on. I'll send you a PM as soon as I find them, or give you a call.

Guest,Valerie, if you join Mudcat (it's free and your addy will not be sold/spammed!) I can send you a Personal Message with details. As you can see, it might take a little while to get these going again. If you are in a hurry for Under Dakota's Cross, the lyrics are available on Mudcat and I could probably put a file up on youtube or something which would get you the tune.

I also have to find the artwork I had for them; I think it's on the old computer which is still in operation, I hope!:-)

(Keep in mind, I start a new novel on Nov. 1st and only have until Nov. 30th to get it done! Crazy? Yes! It's all part of NaNoWriMo!)

Thanks for the interest, folks!

And what Lin and John said goes for me as well, Ms Kat. Thanks so much. I actually enjoy the pops and clicks. To me, they are the sounds of time passing--of people, ghosts maybe (by now), actually using the 78s and adding those few indications of their quick presence. Folk songs have always been my time machines.

Hi Billy, my apologies. I misread the entry in Tony Russell's discography. Ritter made 2 recordings under the title 'Good-bye/Goodbye Old Paint' in 1933 - 13157-2 for ARC was unissued, but 13157-1 was issued on no less than 13 labels including the EBW W21 that you have. Both recordings were accompanied by 'own guitar' only.

Stewie: If the 1933 recording of 'Goodbye Old Paint' was never issued, how come I have a copy of it on Edison Bell Winner W.21? It is backed by 'Rye Whiskey'. I suppose it is possible, (but it doesn't seem very likely) that it was issued in England and not US.

For the record, neither Jules Allen nor Carl Sprague recorded 'Old Paint'. Tex Ritter mostly recorded it under the title 'A Riding Old Paint' and most of those were unissued; his 1933 recording under the title 'Good-bye Old Paint' had no fiddle and was unissued. [cf Meade et alia 'Country Music Sources' and Tony Russell 'Country Music Records'].

Mark, BACM have reissued some Haywire Mac recordings on CD, including the one you want. You will find details on this page: CLICK HERE.

CoolEdit got bought out by Adobe. It's now known as Audition. SoundForge is now from Sony.

Q, **bg**...you were right indeed, Sir!

cobber, congrats on the clicky and the 78s! That is really kewl!

My sister's school was going to throw out old phonographs which play 78's. She got me two of them. That's the next thing we hook up to the computer as we have some 78's and LPs we want to put on disc.

Thanks, Joy. I will look into SoundForge.

CoolEdit is not shareware is it?

Ah tol' yuh! Twarnt enuf to cover the delivery.
Ah, well, Gargoyle will make up the difference.


I figure if each of us sends $10 it may just cover the materials and postage, but certainly nothing for labor.

Cobber, can't get many 78s here in western Canada anymore (unfortunately mostly gone to landfill), but still very useful lp stuff around. I got a very good 78 player (also an lp player- these are abundant and cheap) that I can use with my amplifier and tape deck. A lot of good superceded equipment around, if you ask at smaller repair shops and goodwill outlets.

While I'm on the floor, so to speak, I still play my 78s on a wind-up gramophone which has got a bit of work lately as I'm building in the bush and don't have power. You can still buy 78s quite cheaply here in Australia for instance, a year or two back, I was at a church fate and they had a big heap of 78s donated. It was near the end of the fair and I asked the person on the stall how much they were and was told, $1 each or free if you take the lot! I asked if they had a box I could put them in and was charged 50c for that (The stall holder was a friend of mine). When I got them home, they included Slim Dusty's "Pub With No Beer", a treasure in Australia and several old rock and roll records from people like Gene Vincent and Little Richard. Not bad for 50c. By the way, if you record your records straight in to Cool Edit like I do, it has automatic hiss reduction and you can expand the track to pinpoint and remove the worst clicks and scratches.
