Johnny and Jack: Poison Love

If Cherokee Shuffle made me lonesome for the old days, this old Johnny and Jack tune makes me sad down to my bones. Can't tell you how many of those old Appalachian voices are gone out of my life.


Anyhow, this wasn't what I was lookin' for when I did the search. I was tryin' to find Slow Poison, another old tune by Johnny and Jack. It makes me laugh. How about this for a love song (of sorts):

Carbolic acid, and even ar-sen-ic,

Nuthin' in the drugstore ~ could kill me half as quick

As your slow poison! (...)

Now that'll bring tears to your eyes... (Tears of laughter!)
