Mudlark Origins: I Know You Rider (79* d) RE: Origins: I Know You Rider 10 Feb 07

Ah, this is what Mudcat does the best...and very good to get your input, Bob Coltman. I first heard (and promptly started playing) this song on an album on Argo Folk records by a duo that called themselves The Outsiders, Joel Cory & George McKelvey, both prominant in the Chicago folk scene in early 60's. Can't find a year for this album, but I think it was given to me around 1963. They seem to have gotten around the whole title thing by calling it something entirely different, "Gonna Miss Your Lovin' Papa," attribution "Traditional, arr. by Cory/McKelvey. They include most of the verses you list, Bob, pretty much the way you sang them.

This record is stamped "Not for Sale" and I've never been able to find out much about these two...a friend of theirs gave me the album. There's a good version of Stackalee (sic) that they call "Meanest Man in Town."

(Thread creep...Thanks, Bob, for the extra verse for Wait til the Clouds Roll By...I really love singing that song!)
