If not for the dedication of the 1930’s WPA and its team of folk music collectors, many wandering troubadour’s songs would have been lost, including the team of Woofer Joe and the Hobo Kid, whose song “Big Rock Kibble Mountain” could be heard around many an evening campfire:
On the big rock kibble mountain,
Every dog gets thirty trees,
And all the cats are slow as snails
And there’s no such thing as fleas…
My toes are a-tappin’, Sharon H.
