GUEST,DWR Lyr Req: Lonesome Wind Blues (Rhonda Vincent) (20) RE: Lyr Req: Lonesome Wind Blues (Rhonda Vincent) 29 Apr 10

OK, let's trace this back to the beginning. Rhonda learned this from Buck White. I have the lp with Buck's rendition somewhere, though it's been a while since it has been played, except in my mind, of course.   It's playing there now. (big grin emoticon)

Buck learned it from Wayne Raney, who wrote it. When? I'd have to do some searching on that, but I'm guessing mid to late 50's. If Gene sees this, he can likely come up with something more exact. Wayne was from Wolf Bayou, just down the road a piece from where I live. I met him some years ago. He passed on back in the 90's.

Oh, and back to Buck's recording, it goes back to when his family group was still called Buck White and the Down Home Folks, prior to their changing their name to The Whites. I just now checked, it's available from eMusic, and likely other places as well.
