Is this progression about right? I could use some help.
It seems like a regular 12 bar but with some uncommon changes.

Thanks for corroborating the mis-spoken line Chris and for the catch on the last spoken line--I just figured he was done at the end off that little coda and didn't listen through to the end--now I know!  Thanks!

On "Shaggy," I agree that he misspeaks on that one line; the meaning is certainly clarified by the next one  what you have there is a good phonetic representation, I think.

Don't forget the very end  Spoken: Great God, that stuff is good!

Country Blues Lyrics / Re: Blind Boy Fuller Lyrics
« Last post by Johnm on Yesterday at 02:59:55 PM »
Hi all,
Blind Boy Fuller recorded "Been Your Dog" at a solo session in New York City on February 10, 1937, accompanying himself out of D position in standard tuning. Fuller didn't shy away from playing in D position as some well-known players like Blind Lemon and Charlie Patton did. Here is "Been Your Dog":



INTRO SOLO

Says, I've been your dog, mama, ever since I've been your man
Been your dog, mama, ever since I've been your man
Leavin' you this morning, mama, you can do the best you can

Says, I got me a suitcase, and gettin' me a travelin' trunk
Got me a suitcase, mama, gon' get me a travelin' trunk
Every night I come home, you piled up in the bed, drunk

Mama, today have been, long old lonesome day
Day have been, mama, long old lonesome day
Seem like tomorrow gonna, be the same old way

I said, Lord, Lord, what more can a poor man do?
I said, Lord, Lord, what more can a poor man do?
Try to be good to you, mama, you keep me worried and blue

Now when I'm gone, mama, no use to weep and moan
When I'm gone, mama, no use to weep and moan
Get you another man, God knows this one's gone

Edited 8/13 to pick up corrections from lindy

All best,
Johnm

I have another acoustic blues show streaming live on Thursday night at 9pm eastern time. I'll be playing mandolin and banjos. I've changed "venues" this time and am doing it on YouTube.

Here's the link:

Thanks for those additional names, dj. I'm thinking this whole topic might make for a good Weeniepedia entry that would really be interesting, and I hope folks will continue to add names to this list.  Here's one--Alec Seward also recorded as Guitar Slim.

You're right, John.

  Sam Collins on Gennett
  Salty Dog Sam on Banner and associated dime store labels
 
Some of the Gennett titles were released as

   Big Boy Woods on Bell
   Jim Foster on Champion, Silvertone, and Superior
   Jelly Roll Hunter on some Superior titles

After everything got sorted out I must say I am quite happy with Brighton Belle Blues.

Hi all,
I know that Sam Collins also had records released as Salty Dog Sam, and he may have had them released under other names, too. Does anyone know any of his other recording monickers?
All best,

I'll add that his band Buick 6 is definitely worth checking out. Their "Cypress Grove" album is great, IMHO. And there's an album of songs by John Pearson and Roger (not duets), "Busy Bootin," --"Recorded live at The International Guitar Festival Of Great Britain, 13.11.1991 and Birkenhead Town Hall 9.11.1991"
The Buicks' "Live at the Telegraph" gives a good impression of their live act, but as is usual for such albums is not the same as experiencing the real thing. The band has now broken up. Liam is busy with Steeleye Span and doubtless other projects. Apart from playing bass, Colin gets involved in graphics and other visuals. Roger has been playing with other musicians, usually Pete Shaw on bass (electric & upright) and Bruce Allen on drums, as well as doing solo gigs.
