Hobo’s Lullaby

Just doin’ a little croonin’…

These days I don’t seem to pick up the guitar as much as I used to.

I used to like this song a lot, hadn’t heard it in years and tripped over it today on youtube. It was written by a guy names Goebel Reeves, but the most well known version is probably the very somber Arlo  Guthrie rendition off of his album of the same name.  I like the dark, graininess of the video too… fits the song well. Its a simple three chord song and when you have my limited skills, those are the best kind!

  1. Fantastic. You are talented.

  2. This was awesome! Do you take requests? Any chance you’re a Dylan fan?

    • I do like some Dylan songs but honestly other than the classics (which there are many), I don’t know that much of his music. I like to sing Blowing in the Wind though… I think that’s one of the first songs that any guitar player ever learns! Do I take requests? I don’t think I could replicate his voice! 🙂

    I'm so spoiled now by YouTube, I'm disappointed this wasn't a duet with your cello self.

  4. I can’t believe this! I just heard this on NPR the other day on Fresh Air… You do such a great job on it. I too, love the way the video came out. Thanks for sharing.

    Wonderful. I could listen to this sort of music for hours.
    I’m also enjoying all the other stories on your blog.

    Well done!
    A friend of ours brought his guitar over the other night and sang us a song he had composed about my husband’s motorcycle crash. There is nothing better than these ‘unplugged’ melodies!
