“Country Western” is early country and western music – cowboy songs, ballads, love songs and songs of murder and betrayal. “Red River Shore” comes from Lomax’s “Folk Songs of North America.” “Cool Clear Water” was written by Bob Nolan of the Sons of the Pioneers. “Around a Western Water Tank” is one of many variations of the hobo song.

“Ropin’ Fool” is an up-tempo cowboy song. “Oxford Girl” is a murder ballad with a stately tempo. “Oh Take Me Back” may originate with the Carter Family. “Cowboy Jack” is a lovely cowboy ballad. “The Sporting Cowboy” is another up-tempo cowboy song.

“Wild Ripplin’ Waters” is a song that has many variants, on both sides of the Atlantic, and harkens back to the English ballad “One Morning in May.” “Don’t You Remember” also has distant origins. It tells of a man who falls in love but is rejected by his lover’s parents. He goes away to the service and returns with his “honor shining bright,” only to find his true love dead of sorrow.

Dean Rathje: vocals, guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass.
