If you want to master somebody, you know, lock in on the one that has the most CDs. Because that'll give you the most material. And bury yourself in it. But don't expect to play with anybody who wants to hear you play Blind Blake, 500 tunes. I don't even wanna listen to a whole Blind Blake tape half the time... - Jerry Ricks, Port Townsend 97

Hi all,
"Henry Lee" and "One Cold December Day", both recorded by Dick Justice, are both in 3/4.
All best,

Furry Lewis' The Bugle Song is in 3/4:



Cheers

Pan

Edited to add: I guess this is the same song as "Bugle Waltz", which we already have listed?

Hi all,
Rev. Edward W. Clayborn's hymn, "Death Is Only A Dream", was played in waltz time.
All best,

Hi all,

I just learned from the Joseph Spence thread  ( http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=944.0 ), that his tune "Oh How I Love Jesus" is in waltz time.

Cheers

Hi all

Dock Walsh's  version of "In The Pines" is a waltz.

Hi all

Apart from Leadbelly, Tom Darby and Jimmie Tarlton also did "Birmingham Jail".

Howard Armstrong & Ted Bogan did a fun version of an old german folksong "Du, Du Liegst Mir Im Herzen":

Hi all

I just came across "Penitentiary Blues", a waltz tune by Jimmie Davis, the "singing governor of Louisiana".
This tune from 1930 probably has black musicians Ed Schaffer and Oscar Woods backing him up on guitars, according to Dixon & Godrich.

A snippet can be heard at: http://www.allmusic.com/album/release/midnight-blues-1929-1933-mr0000608284

I  am amazed how unwaltz like they are.  On close inspection it is obvious but most people could rock out to these songs and often miss out on the fact that they are waltz numbers :D

Hi all

Jimmie Rodgers' beautiful "Prairie Lullaby" (written by Billy Hill) is in waltz time.

Hi all,
Dock Boggs' post-rediscovery recording of "Old Joe's Barroom" is in waltz time, as are his renditions of "No Disappointment In Heaven" and "Papa, Build Me A Boat".
All best,
Johnm
