Subject: RE: Lyr Req: I'll be down on the last bread wagon
I got a set of the vinyls from "Last Sessions" too, and also being old, and an old farm boy from Texas, and in our drawl, I think he might be saying, in the second line-- "I'll be there with a whip",(drivin' a team of mules pulling that wagon-remember this is wartime 1917), or "a fifth"(of whiskey-why not?), or "hip" ("hip-flask" of whiskey)"in my hand".   Also, could the "top" phrase be "cover" or "cup-board",   and I hear "in the kitchen doing the eagle rock". Why?- Who can tell about this stuff- its a song over ninty years old sung into a late '40s tape recorder, nearly 65 years ago!!
