JOHNSON BOYS

Here's a well-known bluegrass tune I recorded recently. Just an improvisation. Played clawhammer.

I first came across it in 1964. It was on the B side of "Island of Dreams" , a big hit for The Springfields in that year. I bought the record. The lead female singer of that group was Dusty Springfield. However, the song goes back much earlier than that and lots of people have recorded it before and since.
