Country Blues Lyrics / Re: Buddy Moss Lyrics
« Last post by Johnm on Today at 03:31:37 PM »
Hi all,
If any of you feel like doing some heavy immersion listening to Buddy Moss, I have added links to this thread, all fourteen pages of it.  I was able to find links for all but three or four of his pre-'60s recordings and a decent number of his post-rediscovery recordings that have been transcribed in the thread, over sixty titles.  I also added links to the Frank Stokes Lyrics thread which is currently on page 2 off the Country blues Lyrics board.
All best,
Johnm

My mother, who was from NE PA, used "right" for emphasis all the time-- "right nice" (of someone), "right friendly," "right neighborly," etc. and I'd hear it used quite a bit when I lived in Vermont. I don't recall hearing it used much here in the Pacific NW though. Like Lightnin' says, there are probably areas where it's part of the common lexicon and other places where the frequency of use is relatively low.

Big Bill Broonzy makes his own very unique version of this song so I am not sure what can be directly comparable. He seems to do some picking on the guiar inspired by Leadbelly. If you check out Leadbelly's version, it can be quite easy to hear his great influence on the Skiffle craze on the 50's:

Hell, I still hear "right smart" quite frequently around where I live. That phrase is still quite alive!

Good morning, I would need a transcription of the lyrics of a song on YouTube. Somebody can help me?
I'm Italian blues fans and is very difficult for me understanding the world. Thanks.

FYI "right smart" in the vernacular of that time and place had basically the same meaning to a considerable degree or a lot.

Hi all,
I was wondering who the personnel was in the ensembles on the Charlie McCoy cuts earlier in this thread--"It Is So Good, Part 2" and "Your Valves Need Grinding".  If anyone has access to that information, I'd appreciate it very much, because I'm putting the songs in Weeniepedia and would like to give credit where it is due.  Thanks for any help.
All best,
Johnm

Hi taft,
Thanks for the suggestion.  I had "smack down" originally and am familiar with the idiom but was convinced otherwise.  I will re-listen.
All best,
Johnm
