Buskin'

This song is by Ramblin' Jack Elliott and appears on the album The Ballad Of Ramblin' Jack (2000).

In Carolina it's a tradition
That if somebody's playing music you help him out
And ah, the nearest available farmer would shake down all his neighbors
And say "Hey, let's help these guys out"
And he took his hat off and go around and collect up a bunch of money
We'd maybe get four or five dollars and somebody's hat
Throw up the gas tank and get a quarter milk and some crackers and head out!

We'd did that all summer in 1953
We call that "Buskin'"
It's from the Spanish "Buscar", to search
