Railroad Gin Episode 3

Railroad Gin Episode 3

Hello everyone! Thanks for checking out the written portion of the Railroad Gin video blog. I figured that I would do this as well as the video blog so i'm not blabbing forever on the video blog. Anyway. Episode Three is about Murder Ballads, specifically I talked about the song "Rose Connelly". It's a West Virginian Murder Ballad about a man who is coerced by his father to kill the woman he loves for her money. I got this song, its chords and partially its melody straight out of Alan Lomax's "Folk Songs of North America" which is obviously something you need to own if your interested in Folk Music.
