Wildwood flowers.

With the roses so red and the lilies so fair.

Oh man. Maybelle spent her whole adult life as a serious C&W guitar player. That's rare now, but pretty much unknown then. And that Gibson L-5 wasn't cheap when she bought it. I saw her a couple of years after this, doing a few songs as part of her son-in-law's act.

I still have an old LP of Maybelle's with some fascinating studio talk between some tracks. Wonderful stuff.
