Minor Eureka! (Airy Man Blues)
Posted by Ari Eisinger on October 1, 2006, 3:36 pm
Awhile back on this board (see page 2, thread entitled "Papa Charlie Jackson--"Airy Man""), we were trying to decipher Papa Charlie Jackson's Airy Man Blues, and coming up (forgivably) rather short. I think I just got another snippet while listening to the song on Weenie Campbell's juke (www.weeniecampbell.com/juke). Please correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the first verse end with "or you'll never get the (a) ten dollar bill"?
It's strange how you can listen to something for years, and all of a sudden understand it.
