This is from a 37 song cd of odds n' ends that feels like a rollercoaster, and is as much fun. Write to: tropicola@hotmail.com. Oh, & it's the Trio song. 
Simon Cropp  MTA   Options Home Recorded Cassette    2002  Simon is a 5 year old singer from my new hometown of Lanesboro, MN. I've always enjoyed his rendition of this Kingston Trio tune, and with a subway fare increase brewing, it seemed topical. 
Wilders  Robinson County   Options Cornbread, Molasses and Sassafras Tea  Rural Grit  1999  I was running out of time, but I at least had to put in a sample of this amazing bluegrass group. If you like very alive sounding fiddle, old time & honky-tonk, write to bewilder@kc.net. And they absolutely rock beyond belief live! 
  It was beyond fun to come by and play some songs again; I hope to return sooner or later, mostly money depending. You can always email me with any questions or hellos via this handy page (though that might not be forever). Take Care Everybody, Thanks For LIstening! -Andy
