I have a copy of lyrics for the song "Fifty Cents a Day" (got it here: http://www.njsekela.com/OSCommerce/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=3...), with a note of the "Tune-Joe Bowers". Anyone have a recording of this song? I pretty sure I know which one it is as after seeing "Joe Bowers" it struck some memory in the back of my head. Here's one I found on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajLQ5-oUdVg
The LoC song sheet collection had a few other songs set to "Joe Bowers". One of those tunes I suppose!
