Bill Monroe and His Bluegrass Boys
Live at Bean Blossom, 1972
Good morning, Captain.
Good morning, Shine.
For those of you that don’t know, “shine” is a racist slur against blacks. I sang this song for years, not knowing the word he was using, or its context (white privilege much). Originally written by a black Mississippi blues man named Tom Dickson, Bill Monroe had the lyrics rewritten to remove the word for his recorded version of this song, “The New Muleskinner Blues”. It should be noted, however, that Monroe always sang the lyrics in their original form.
Just goes to show that fighting racism and reappropriation in a music form, however beloved, rooted in the Southern landscape is a constant endeavor.
