Twanging Tuesday # 41


Here we have a nice country 'n' western rocker from Louisiana by Jim Oertling.I didn't found much about him in the Internet. What I found that his family originally hailed from Louisiana but moved to Texas eventually, where young Jim was raised. Although he visited his home state Louisiana every summer, he eventually moved back there and attended Louisiana State University. While studying, he played guitar in a bluegrass band and wrote this song called 'Old Moss Black'. With his band he began to tour the country and played in bars, honky-tonks and roadhouses from Mississippi to Texas. This song is from the fantastic sampler 'The Rarest Rockabilly Album In The World, Ever'

Great song, Walter. Is this the best ever twangy guitar song about fishing?
