Possum Up In Simmon Tree - Merle Travis

1

I love this song by Merle so I thought I'd share it with you guys and I hope you like it as much as I do. I think it's one of his best and I just dig the playing he adds to it. What a player!!!! I love this guy!

Anytime I see or hear the name, Merle Travis, I perk up. That combination of pickin' and singin' was special. I've never heard this one before, but I love it. All of those songs where it's just him and an acoustic guitar are very special.

Thanks, Taffy. We need to make a pilgrimage to KY sometime. Those folks up there would love your music and that part of the world would rub off on you.

Like that. Nice upbeat and certainly reminds me of some of the front porch jams at grandma's in the Appalachians.

Gotta love that old-time music. Merle was right, there's about fortyleven jillion versions of that song. Thanks for posting that, Taffy.

Some might call this sacrilege, but here is Grandpa Jones' version of the same song.
