“Play me some mountain music” question?

by Frolic

Question by xbCx BeAsT: “Play me some mountain music” question?
Why in this song do they talk about mountain music, and then a cajun hide away? Cajuns are mainly from Louisiana, which as everyone knows, is no where near any mountains? I wonder if anyone else has been stumped by this, let me know what you think.

Best answer:

Answer by Rob
“Oh, play me some mountain music,
Like grandma and grandpa used to play.
Then I’ll float on down the river
To a Cajun hideaway”

I think he wants to hear the mountain music his grandparents played, then float
down the river (I’m guessing the Mississippi or one of its hundreds of tributaries)
like Tom Sawyer & Huck Finn to Louisiana. There are several smaller rivers that
travel down from the mountains of Tennessee and eventually empty into the
Mississippi River.

country music and the south?

I have to do a presentation for a class about southern culture.

I chose "How country music has inpacted the southern US states [Louisiana, Texas, Florida, ect.]"

Can you guy give me any ideas of songs to present, or maybe even a description? I’m talking real country by the way, maybe something like Johnny Cash’s generation of country music.

Don’t worry, I’m not asking you to write me a whole paper.
Maybe just a couple brief points?

It’d really help me out a alot :)

I respect all genres of music. Country western music was derived from blue grass music. PBS had documentaries on this. Classic country is the music from Johnny Cash’s generation. Best wishes! :)
