Ballad of A Banjo Picking Man

An old mountain banjo,

it makes a lonesome mournful sound

Like few things else anyone ever heard

If you’ve never listened to one played

Trying to explain it would be absurd

He loved to pick and sing until one evening

he had to lay it down,

he went to the parlor to rest,

thought it was for the best

Soon after, they were putting him in the ground
