There’s a spider.
One of the prettiest theme songs ever, and one of my favorites.
Then the Missus ruined it for me forever by singing this:
Wagons here, wagons there,
There are wagons everywhere;
Some are short, some are long,
And they’re even in this song;
On a ship, on a plane,
You can find them on a train;
This is what we call the Theme to Wagon Train.

How ’bout some country blues? Eric Bibb does it right.
Eric Bibb (vocals, acoustic guitars, baritone guitar, resonator guitar, contra bass guitar, cigar box diddly bow, 6-string banjo & footstomp), Grant Dermody (harmonica), Dirk Powell (fretless banjo, fiddle, mandolin, accordion, upright bass, banjo & harmony vocal), Cedric Watson (fiddles & backing vocals), Danny DeVillier (drums & tambourine), Christine Balfa (cajun triangle).
Aside from the video bloopers and bad cuts, I’d have never guessed so many great ones played on that track.
Have a great weekend, folks, and remember that Memorial Day is not about hot dogs and beer.
You might still be able to find this great parody on the internest if you know where to look. It’s one of those rare recordings that you could play in the background at a party and few would notice until someone says “Wait a minute! That’s not Bob!”
Copyright lawyers knocked it down years ago and spoiled the fun. Go figure.
