Product Notes

In this collection of songs the emphasis is on family and history. In the song, 'Nothing Changes' three generations of Davis Family history are summed up and the Sarah who runs off with Thomas Jefferson Davis in this song reappears in 'Haul the Woodpile Down' as Gri--short for grandma. Gri has named her butcher knives, 'Big Butch, Little Butch, Scrape Pan and Cutty'. People tended to name the tools of their trades in those days and Gri knew how to butcher a chicken and fry it for Sunday dinner. In the song 'Lemonade' the hero of the song is a hard working boy who uses his holiday dime to buy lemons to make lemonade to celebrate the Fourth of July with his mom. And in the song 'Come and Get Your Men' the danger of fire caused by muzzle loaded rifles during the Civil War is vividly described. Dennis Goodwin wrote this song after visiting the actual battlefield where the events described in the song happened. Mattie Groves is a very old ballad about adultery which could be a plot for a soap opera today. This song is at least 300 years old but proves to be timeless in it's story. All in all, this CD is indeed a musical slideshow.
