“Fallen by the Wayside” is a collection of nine American folk songs, some with roots in old Europe.
Someone opines that “A Picture from Life’s Other Side” was written by Charles Baer.
“Windy Bill” is a cowboy song, about a seasoned ranch hand who decides on a bet to rope a wily old bull.
“Tom Bolyn” is a Scottish folksong.
“Fallen by the Wayside” may have originated with Charlie Poole and his North Carolina Ramblers in the early 1930s.
“Father Grumble” is also called “The Old Man in the Wood.” It’s a well-worn tale of a farmer and his wife switching tasks for a day.
“My Wandering Boy” is a beautiful folk song about an old mother pining for her rambling son.
“All the Pretty Little Horses” is a jazz rendition of an old lullabye.
“The Old Chisholm Trail” is a favorite cowboy song about the effort to night-herd cattle scattered by a storm.
“Old and Only in the Way” may also have originated with Charlie Poole, an old-time banjo player and country musician in the first third of the 20th century.
Dean Rathje: voices, guitars, dobro, banjo, mandolin, bass.
