Roll Muddy River

video

"Roll Muddy River" was on another one of those country anthology LP's of Pop's, maybe the same one that "What Are Those Things" was on, I can't recall. I always liked the folksy ramble of this song. It looks like there are many different versions of this song done by many artists, ranging from real bluegrassy to rockin' country. I am not 100% certain that this particular version, by the Wilburn Brothers, is the exact version we had, but if it is not, it is very close to it.Again, I know nothing about the Wilburn Brothers. I can't help but recall an alternate lyric coined by my oldest brother, "I've got a notion Kung Fu's in slow motion", every time I hear this.

This song got in the blood, and colored just about any story or meditations on river journeys for me, from Huckleberry Finn to The Elfin Ship. Is this going to be on Volume II?

I am gonna get it off iTunes and put it on Vol. 2. I know what you mean about it seeping in to all things river. The Guadalupe flooded shortly after I posted this and I couldn't help but feel somehow responsible. (kidding)

I never heard this one before, but it's cool song.

BTW, I'm going to be sending you two some mp3 albums eventually. There are a couple more LPs I want to get ripped first.
