Thought I would sing you one this time. This is a song my brother and I did for a special at church. I added a couple of small fiddle parts to it here at home. Just like my fiddling, my singing is also pretty bad, but people seem to tolerate it. I think it’s because they have finally found someone that they can sing better than. So they keep me around just for that. Maybe it won’t be so bad if you sing along with me. My brother is playing the mandolin and comes in and helps with the singing. Just a little about the author of this song, Jennie Bain Wilson. She was born in 1857 near South Whitley Indiana. At age four she was stricken with a spinal condition and spent the rest of her life in a wheel chair. She was very well home schooled and it is said of her that she made over two thousand two hundred contributions of songs and text. Many of her hymns are in the hymn books still today. She passed in 1913. Also credited with this song is Franklin L. Eiland, 1860 - 1909. I’m not sure if he was a co writer or a publisher of this song. Could have been both. He was a publisher, he wrote many popular hymns himself, he was a much sought after teacher of singing schools, and taught many people that went on to write many of the hymns that you may know today. I wished I could have attended his school, I bet he wishes that too. Let me say that I’m not trying to influence you or change your life with the little gospel songs I play. It’s just some of the music I like to do. If it offends you in some way, just let me know, I will consider what you say.

There are several tunes out there titled Madeleine, this one is a waltz. I learned this good tune from Ms Lora at Red Desert. It was written by Larry Unger and that’s him playing the backup track. Madeleine, with just a few slight changes (cause I can‘t do what they are doing) in standard tuning.

My version of Straw Bonnet. It’s not very authentic, but still within keeping of the tune. It’s in the key of G. I try to use a two note slurred shuffle on most of the A part and some anywhichway three note slurs on the B part. This is a one shot through at the kitchen table on a home PC type recording, so please have a little compassion. I may revisit this song as my playing and recording skills improve. (Although there has been a pattern of decline lately.) Straw Bonnet - Traditional - Old Time This arrangement by Squeaky Astrang (Not Grey Bonnet, not Blue Bonnet, and probably not Old Straw Bonnet)

My first contribution to the Media Archive, I hope it comes through okay cause I don’t know what I’m doing! This is kind of my variation of a Melvin Wine version of the tune - Where We’ll Never Grow Old. I first became familiar with this version from Dr fiddle.
