: In the song "Oxford (Mississippi)
: Blues" by Bill Nettles of 1939 (NOTE:
: this song is featured on the Oxford American
: Music magazine CD of 2001) the last verse
: "I ain't no racehorse, ain't no ??
: commadene ??
: I'm a red hot daddy running like a sewing
: The word in question is ?
: "commadene" ?. What is the
: correct spelling and the definition of the
: word? I have referred to old dictionaries
: in the library and blues slang websites to
: no avail.
: In Spanish there is the word
: "comodin" which would be
: pronounced the same. However, the only
: definition of that word that I can find is
: "joker" as in a deck of cards. So
: it seems that word just wouldn't fit into
: the context of the rest of the verse.
: A N Y C O M M E N T S ??
