lamarca Origins: Diamond Joe--'diamond studded jaw?' (22) RE: Origins: Diamond Joe--'diamond studded jaw?' 22 Sep 06

Art, Andy Wallace sings a version of "The Glendy Burke" that substitutes "The Diamond Joe", and also messes around with the chorus timing, etc. He got it from the Utah folklorist, Hal Cannon (Deseret String Band, Bunkhouse Orchestra, Elko Cowboy Poetry Gathering, etc). I don't know if Hal collected it or not, but it certainly refers to your Diamond Joe steamboat line!
