about

The first of two delightful old-time reels in this collection, this tune was arranged with new words and a chorus by Tex Logan for Bill Monroe’s famous "Christmas Time's A-Comin'" in 1951. Fiddlin' John Carson (1868-1949) was a lifelong resident of Georgia who made hundreds of recordings through the years.

lyrics

Christmas time will soon be over
Christmas time will soon be over
Christmas time will soon be over
Then we'll join the band

Come on gals, let's go up river
Come on gals, let's go up river
Come on gals, let's go up river
Then we'll join the band
