Liner Notes: 

- This is Kingwood Kowboys Lyrics which Bill White then musicated.

I follow both these artists, and immediately "heard" some overdubs in my head during Bill's musication.
- I don't think I ever chimed into a collaboration previously, but like the song as lyric, - concerned to do justice to another persons Father, their story, - so did nothing; until Bill framed it out so well and was fine as-is.

- I put up this [Add New Song] since really does "bud in" Smile on these two fellows with many reviews here already as their work; and, anyone who enjoyed it as it was originally done, should be able to link to it easily as it was (not "replaced"). I didn't feel right hitting the [Remove] button of Bill's track. And, it may get removed anyway! Wink hahhh! (up to them!).

So, there you go! Smile

I don't change ANYTHING, - all I did was some overdubbing and an attempt to make "that" then work as this track is, on a very late Sunday night, early Monday morning!

Lyrics: 

Well, my own Daddy’s name was Ivy
But he was known as Hurricane Jones
Yes, he was kin to the wayward wind
Mama saw that was the way with him

He was born in Louisiana
And my dear Mama was born there too
Now, I was born in Corpus Christi
Right in the middle of World War Two

Hurricane Jones was my Daddy’s name
Maybe the wayward wind was to blame
Hurricane Jones didn’t leave no stones
His life rolled on as Hurricane Jones

My Mama raised us kids in Texas
While Daddy worked anywhere he could
Well digger or on a garbage truck
And Gladstell sawmill where he stacked wood

When I saw my Mama’s hungry eyes
And her tired fingers worked to the bone
That’s when I wondered where Daddy was
Just like a hurricane he was gone

Hurricane Jones was my Daddy’s name
Maybe the wayward wind was to blame
Hurricane Jones didn’t leave no stones
His life rolled on as Hurricane Jones

Hurricane Jones didn’t leave no stones
His life rolled on as Hurricane Jones

Many thank yous for doing the overdub on Hurricane Jones.
The Backup Vocal, Elec Gtr, Harp, Bass, Hand-claps really brings out the lines.
Funny how things forgotten can still be memorialized.
