Cisco Houston - Passing Through mp3 flac

Gilbert Vandine "Cisco" Houston (August 18, 1918 – April 29, 1961) was an American folk singer and songwriter who is closely associated with Woody Guthrie due to their extensive history of recording together. Houston was a regular recording artist for Moses Asch's Folkways recording studio. He also performed with such folk/blues musicians as Lead Belly, Sonny Terry, Woody Guthrie and the Almanac Singers.

Cisco Houston is best remembered as a traveling companion and harmony vocalist for Woody Guthrie. But Houston was equally influential as a folksinger in his own right. With his acoustic guitar accompanying his unadorned baritone vocals, Houston provided a musical voice for America's downtrodden - the cowboys, miners, union activists, railroad workers, and hobos - that resonated in the songs of the urban folk revival of the 1950s and '60s. Just when it seemed that Houston's career was taking off, he was diagnosed with cancer. His death in the spring of 1961 was mourned throughout the folk community, and memorials were written and recorded by Tom Paxton ("Fare Thee Well, Cisco"), Peter LaFarge ("Cisco Houston Passed This Way"), and Tom McGrath ("Blues for Cisco Houston").

Passing Through This song is by Cisco Houston and appears on the album Passing Through (1964) and on the album The Folkways Years, 1944-1961 (1994). I saw Adam leave the Garden With an apple in his hand, "Now you're out, what are you gonna do?" "Plant my crops and pray for rain, Think I'll raise a little cane. I'm an orphan now, and I'm only passing through. Passing through, passing through. Sometimes happy, sometimes blue, Glad that I ran into you. Tell the people that you saw me passing through. I saw Jesus on that cross On a hill called Calvary "Do you hate mankind for what they did to you?" He said, "Speak of love not hate, There's things to do, it's growing late.
