Note: Jones talks about her acquaintance with band leaders Hopalong Charlie and Dupree in Florida, and how they wanted her to travel and perform in their show. She stayed with Dupree's mother in 1920. Lomax mentions the ballad of Betty and Dupree, and sings verses of Boll Weevil and Poor Farmer. Jones is reminded of Diamond Joe.
