Song: Gambling for Gold (Album: Vol. 2)


This is an interesting story Maxie tells us through song, based on the inspiration of her great-grandfather who lived in Mississippi and happened to be a gambler; he died of tuberculosis; Maxie explains "What I knew of his story I wanted to put in a song."

With some interesting details filled in and changed, "Gambling for Gold" tells a tale of Americana, the Old West variety, with guns a-blazing, gambling, and gold -- remember, there was Annie Oakley. In this version, Spike Jones helped with the production (incl. guitar) and Inge Goodson sang back-up in another quality and fun effort from this familiar ensemble of talented musicians and songwriters. Recorded in the early 90s. The fitting song art was created by Maxie Kinney.
