From the recording Apple & Setser
9. When The Wagon Was New (2:27) (Public Domain) Mid-tempo acoustic country/bluegrass/roots. ISRC: USCGH 2222638. This nostalgic song was possibly written by Sam McGee and dates back to the 1920s. The lyrics describe fond memories of the 1800s when there was a slower pace of life and a greater sense of connection with neighbors back in the days of horse-drawn wagons. In contrast to the busy, less connected lives we lead due to modern conveniences. Pam and Brad beautifully duet, and the fiddle, mandolin, and resonator guitar send us back in time.
