I'm working on a new version of Tumbling Tumbleweeds which is a cross between the one done by The Sons of the Pioneers with Roy Rogers and Leo Kottke's brilliant reinterpretation without vocals. In the meantime, I wanted to upload this a cappella 4 part harmony version I've done to get used to the harmonies and the feel of the original versions. Hope you enjoy it! The guitar impersonation during the interlude may be a bit over the top but I just had to do it. lol

Music and Lyrics: Bob Nolan/Sons of the Pioneers
Vocals/Harmonies: Carla J. Patterson

Drifting along with those tumbling tumbleweeds... In four part harmony no less. This is wonderful, such control and emotion in your vocals. Great work. Thanks for sharing with us.

Thanks Baboon! Victor, much appreciated… I'm only interpreting Bob Nolan's lyrics in my own Carla way. smiley

@tomdevine - actually, I saw my first tumbleweeds in the UC Berkeley Botanical Garden! smiley

Lovely traditional rendering in a style so beautiful with your voice. The melancholy is dripping in this song. I have seen the tumbleweeds in Arizona when I went there many years back. You bring this this song to a spiritual level. LOVE.

Peace,
Tony

Thanks so much, Tony! I have still not seen any tumbleweeds actually TUMBLING! In the UC Botanical Garden, they were still attached to the ground. They're really beautiful in that state but the song is definitely more about the melancholy you're talking about, what one would feel in a landscape where they are dusty and constantly moving, untethered. Just like the cowboys as they moved cattle from place to place, I'm guessing.
