Gwine Down Slow

I learnt this from my grandmother, she told me she learnt it from a friend of hers, I went an' met her, she's about a hunnerd an' five years old an' she learnt it from her brother who's a hunnerd an' ten an' then I met him, y'know, he lived north of Fort Worth an' he learnt it from me

Hey folks,

Looks like there’s some trouble downloading the latest group of tunes. Anyone had trouble? I think MediaFire is starting to combat sharing of copyrighted songs (or summpin). Anybody have any ideas on what t’do? Fer now, if ya wanna hear the last mix we posted send us yer email address and we’ll throw the file yer way!


“We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and — in spite of True Romance magazines — we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely — at least, not all the time — but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don’t see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.”

—   Hunter Thompson
