JENNY GET YOUR HOECAKES DONE/RYE STRAW/SHIPS IN THE CLOUDS
Side 1, Band 2.
The first tune comes from the repertoire of Grandpa Jones, who sings words to it that are reminiscent of those to "Bile Them Cabbage Down." The second tune is known in many parts of the country and carries titles like "Joke on the guppy" and "The Unfortunate Dog," all of which circumvent the scatological reference in the real title. We avoid it here as well. The last tune was learned from Lisa Ornstein on a Folkways record by the same title. Living and playing in Quebec now, Lisa probably doesn't play Appalachian tunes like this one anymore. (CBP)
