cowboypoet Lyr Req/Add: Platonia / Patanio (36) RE: Lyr Req: Patanio, Patonio, Platonia, whatever 19 Jan 01

Dale, those are the lyrics I was hoping for. At least now we know what some of the country music stars used to do on the bus traveling from nowhere to the back of beyond. Thanks again for taking the trouble to transcribe. I would like very much to hear Hank Snow's version of the song -- he was a much more accomplished guitarist than many of his contemporaries. He recorded a song called "The Rhumba Boogie" in 1951 on which he played some of the most hard-driving rhythm I've ever heard and a couple of pretty good breaks. As I just joined I don't know quite how this site works yet so, taking no chances, my e-mail address is

BTW, I also heard that Norman Blake has a version of the song on his new CD.

I'll be playing "Patanio" in my next performance. Dunno if my audience will thank you but I surely do.
