Subject: RE: Yellow Dog Blues??
Scrapper Blackwell put out a fine SOLO LP for Prestige back in the 60's. On it was "I'm Goin' Where The Monon Crosses The Yellow Dog".

Of course Scrapper was best known for being the partner of Leroy Carr in the 1930's--did many 78s for Columbia. Carr on piano & vocals---Blackwell on guitar. Josh White played on some cuts also.
"Monon" was the Monongahela Railroad
