GUEST,Pete Peterson Lyr Req: Back Up and Push (17) RE: origin/lyrics: Back Up and Push 18 Oct 06

The reason that the Georgia Organ Grinders sounded so much like the Skillet Lickers is that they shared many of the same personnel.

Georgia Organ Grinders: Clayton McMichen, f; Bert Layne, f; Fate Norris, bj; Melvin Dupree, g; Lowe Stokes, organ. (April 9-10 1929)

Skillet Licker lineup from that time period: Clayton McMichen, f; Gid Tanner, f; Lowe Stokes, f; Fate Norris, bj; Riley Puckett, g.

My favorite lyrics are the ones Richie Shulberg (Citizen Kafka) made up for the Wretched Refuse String Band some years ago:
The wheels of Karma go round and round
Sometimes you're up and sometimes you're down
The wheels of Karma will make you dance
If you're not good here, you come back ANTS

I hear "Creole Belle/Richland Woman Blues" and "Back up and Push" as very different songs.
