CarterNut Lyr Req: Solid Gone? / She's Gone (Mark Spoelstra) (13) RE: Find Song Folk Blues 'Solid Gone' 24 May 99


I know that Mother Maybelle Carter and her daughters June, Helen, and Anita recorded "The Cannonball" at least three different times between 1949 and 1974. They put a little chorus to the song:

Now I'm here crying cause he's gone,
Wish that I was dying cause he's gone,
He's solid gone.

Of course it is Mother Maybelle doing all that fancy blues guitar work (taught to her by Leslie Riddle) on that original Carter Family recording. John
