your version predates the first recorded version, it is a re-imaging of the song before the melody began to what used to be called shape singing.

shape note singing is still being taught. i took classes in it when studying madrigals.

I like the driving rhythm from the guitar and vocal. The song is very touching, it's sparse but complete. Another very good addition to your Cowboy Trails collection.

Another really great addition to the cowboy songs. Nobody "famous" and I can't remember who now even, but I have heard a version of this done as well it seems, was probably my uncle or one of the various bands he's been in/around and did have a different melody. They probably just had the same book Wink

Hahh, thanks - it's an otherwise long song; so condensing it seems to be the "thing" with these. So, you didn't "get" the last verse? before ending chorus. Smile

Nope just still mad about not finding any gold in that grave Biggrin No I didn't even catch that. LOL I almost never "hear" actual lyrics.

I don't know why but i want to hum in the background for this song. Like ohhh ohh ohhh hehe.

This has a good melody to it and a story that keeps the pacing engaged, chorus has a strong hook as well!
