Ranch Radio Song Of The Day #1516
Its Country Roots Week and are you ready to waltz? Here's the 78rpm of Taylor's Louisiana Melody Makers performing the beautiful On The Bridge At Midnight. The tune was recorded in Memphis on Sept. 24, 1929 and released on the Victor label. Arthur Smith and his Dixie Liners had a version of this tune in the late thirties that has another verse and it isn't a waltz. The song is based on a poem by Longfellow titled The Bridge, which begins, "I stood on the bridge at midnight."
