2019 version of the 1927 event ... as the article states, different disaster speed. Do check out the "big picture" maps showing the amount of land that flooded this year ... and take a look at Cairo, Illinois, a town we like to sing about ...

I just replaced mine and got the version before what they are selling now to keep the headphone jack. Even with the connection, I don't know what system you have, Sixthstring, but you might want to double check whatever you are buying with the manufacturer's specs as to compatibility with the operating software on the ipad so the mic is recognized properly.

Someone has posted the Bob Howard version on YouTube. The lyrics are a little different from McTell's in a couple of places Ė notably, he sings "Is this love or heart disease?" where McTell sings "Is my lover hard to please?" and "Made that man give up his crown" instead of "Made King Edward give up his crown."



And according to Discogs, that's Teddy Bunn on guitar!

Hi all,
Here is one from the downstate Delaware musician, Frank Hovington, recorded as "Guitar Frank".  I really like everything he did, and there is more stuff of his on youtube than just the record he recorded for Flywright.  Here is "Mama Don't Allow":



All best,
Johnm

Country Blues Lyrics / Re: Carl Martin Lyrics

Hi John, I transcribed Crow Jane when I recorded it in 2006, the version that Carl Martin does on the album done in 1966 on Testament. Some added verses.

Carl Martin: Crow Jane Blues 

 Crow Jane Crow Jane, donít  hold your head so high
Well you must remember got to come down and die

I woke up this morning, blues all around my bed
Went to eat my breakfast,  blues all in my bed
 
My mamma she told me when she shook my hand
If you get in trouble try and do the best you can

My mamma, she dead, pappa wonít allow me home
Ainít got nobody teach me right from wrong

When you see me coming, hide your window high
When you see me leaving, hang your head and cry

Crow Jane Crow Jane, donít  hold your head so high
Well you must remember to come down and die

Hi all,
I was surprised to find that Carl Martin's version of "Crow Jane" had never had its lyrics transcribed here.  Here is his performance of the song, followed by his lyrics:



INTRO SOLO

Crow Jane, Crow Jane, don't hold your head so high
Crow Jane, Crow Jane, don't hold your head so high
For you must remember, you've got to come down and die

SOLO

If you don't want me, baby, just give me your right hand
If you don't want me, baby, just give me your right hand
I'll go back to my woman, you go back to your man

SOLO

My Mama she told me, when she shook my hand
My Mama she told me, when she shook my hand
"If you get in trouble, son, do the best you can."

SOLO

All best,
Johnm
