Rex Genuine Cowboy Songs (35) RE: Genuine Cowboy Songs 04 May 15


I'm pleased that the suggestions here didn't leave much out. Thorp published the first book in 1908, Lomax published the second in 1910. Glad you remembered Glenn Orhlin's work, Univ. of Illinois Press, God bless him. And Katie Lee's work, that must be the most unique of cowboy song compilations. Tinsley rounded up the best background on the songs. To touch on definitions, what is a "genuine" cowboy song? Early cowboys loved Casey Jones published around 1910 but Thorp wouldn't touch it as he was focused on songs about cowboys instead of what played in their minds or on the tips of their tongues.
