Oh no, this is a recording of an old man about 30 years ago singing acapella.

Re: Belle De Marie

You can e-mail to me and I will give it a crack.

Strange, though, because the song you mention by Riley is the same song by Louis Cormier in the 1960s, and it's a Cajun version of an old Jimmie Rodgers tune Gamblers Barroom Blues. So whatever lyrics your old man is singing sounds different from both of those.

Re: Re: Belle De Marie

Man I just came across that Louis Cormier version a few weeks ago and have just about worn it out.
