                Hobo's Lullaby

Emmylou Harris recorded this Woody Guthrie song in 1988 for 
a CD called Folkways: A Vision Shared (A Tribute to Woody 
Guthrie and Leadbelly).  There are a few other songs on the 
CD that are played on acoustic guitar:  Bob Dylan sings 
Pretty Boy Floyd; Bruce Springsteen sings I Ain't Got No 
Home; and Arlo Guthrie does East Texas Red.

In Hobo's Lullaby, Emmylou Harris sings and plays guitar, 
and Mark O'Connor plays fiddle. The fiddle comes in at the 
beginning of the second chorus, and has a solo between the 
chorus and the second verse.  I think the vocals are 
double-tracked on the last chorus.
