Thread Name: Art Theime's Roving Gambler
Subject: Art Theime's Roving Gambler
During a period of semi-employment (no, I'm not a truck driver), I am digitizing my collection of cassettes which consists of off-air recording of late '70s and early '80s folk music programs.
One of them is a recording of the Come for to Sing Benefit Concert which was recorded in June, 1978 at Somebody Else's Trouble.
Unfortunately, I started the tape during Art's performance of "The Roving Gambler" and missed the start of a joke he was telling between verses. My tape starts on "...door, says This the home of the widow Yates? She says I'm Yates, but I ain't no widow. He says I got twenty bucks says you are."
If anyone could help me with the beginning of this joke, a frustration that has been irritating me for 21 years would be resolved.
Thanks in advance,
