The Singing Cowboy & Mother Jones

September 3, 2018

“The Death of Mother Jones,” sung by Gene Autry, 1930. about the great radical union organizer — Mary Harris Jones, sometimes called the “most dangerous woman in America”  by her enemies — who died in 1930 at age 100. Frankie Marvin accompanied Mr. Autry on slide guitar. The songwriter is unknown, although the label credits the song to W C Calaway, possibly William R. Calaway, a record company A&R man.
