Burgeron Trailer Blues

An old recording of the Burgeron Trailer Song was recently discovered in the National Archives of the Congress.  The song dates back to the earliest times of the blues. The recording was probably done in the 1920s. It was song by the Burgeron family members on family gatherings and other occasions.

In this particular recording it’s assumed that it is Ron Burgeron singing. Apparently he wasn’t too happy when he sang it. But then again, the text isn’t too happy either considering him being alone with nothing but a pregnant cow.

It seems there are a few modifications from original text displayed below. It’s only natural that small changes happen in songs over time.

Old Burgeron trailer song ( recording estimate 1923 )

I’m sit’n ‘n front my trailer
having so much fun,
I’m sit’n ‘n front my trailer and
the fun has just begun.
(2x)

The cow is now in labour
the boys are on the run
daddy’s full of booze and
where the heck is mum?

Oh …

I’m sit’n ‘n front my trailer
having so much fun, I’m
sit’n ‘n front my trailer and
the fun has just begun.

sit’n ‘n front my trailer and
the fun has just begun.

Yeah!
