From the recording The Sideman Steps Out Download Version
Shannon Slaughter – guitar and lead vocal / Heather Slaughter – bass / Shawn Lane – mandolin and tenor vocal / Joey Cox – banjo / Ron Stewart – fiddle. My buddy Brink Brinkman and I finished this Depression – era song on Larry Stephenson’s bus at the festival in Bean Blossom, IN while I was filling in one weekend. I first studied “The Bonus Army” as a history teacher and wanted to tell its’ story someday. Thanks to Brink, we did. Again, Shawn sings it like he lived it and Joey really hammers the 5 on this tune!!!
