Down with the Old Canoe

Dixon Brothers - Down with the Old Canoe (1938), Bluebird  B-7449

Thanks to bobsluckycat, another nice recording finds its way onto this blog. The Dixon Brothers were an important duo in old-time music, Dorsey's songwriting is legendary by now. Here's what bobsluckycat said about "Down with the Old Canoe:"
This song was written in late 1937 and recorded on January 25, 1938 in Charlotte NC for RCA Victor by the Dixon Brothers and is a re-working of the old song from 1912 into a gospel number (of sorts).
This was re-mastered in 1964 for an educational series of LP's from Victor from 1922 through the 1940's with various themes.
 Hope you all enjoy it.
