You’ve Been A Good Old Wagon

But You Done Broke Down. Now I’ve only known this as a blues sung by the “Empress of the Blues” - the late, great Bessie Smith. However with a little bit of research, I find that it was written by David Harney and was the first ragtime song to be recorded in 1895.

I, of course, am referring to my now traded in, Ford Ka, EF09BMY. It had broken down a couple of times recently and an expensive pattern was emerging.🙁 I would have liked its replacement to be a SWB Land Rover pick-up or a decent van with space for ladders and other geocaching TOTT but it‘s a Ford Fiesta. Can’t complain though.😀
