Rock the Cradle Joe

Rock the Cradle Joe from YouTube. Played at a jam that looks like lots of fun. Filmed in the dark with night vision technology (light). It seems this cabin has no electric lights (note lanterns) or heat source (note men wearing warm hats and women knitting frantically). Someone yells, "Banjo!" and the fiddles stop. Confusion ensues but the fiddles do eventually get back on track.

Key of D. Two parts.

  • Jazzy fiddle at jam from Mt. Airy [utoob]. The lead fiddler plays in the band called Jubal's Kin.
  • Jazzy solo banjo in the backyard by Jim Pankey [utoob].

Lyrics

Rock the cradle Lucy, rock the cradle Joe.Rock the cradle Lucy, don't let the baby go.
