“Cambric Shirt” is one original and nine traditional songs. “Yes You Can” is the one original song. “You Are My Flower” comes from the Carter Family tradition. “Hard Times” originates with Stephen Foster. “Searching the Desert for the Blues” is my adaptation of a Willie McTell Song.
The title track is a riddle song, with three-part harmony. “Skillet Good & Greasy” originates with Dave Macon. “Cowboy Jack” is a song I learned from the recordings of Harry Jackson. “Bound to Ride” is another Carter Family song.
“Jock Stuart” comes from the Scottish ballad tradition. “She Left Me the Mule to Ride” is traditional American blues.
Dean Rathje: voices, guitars, banjo, dobro, mandolin, piano, bass.
