Ramblin' Jack Elliott Quotes

Ramblin' Jack Elliott Quotes

"I've heard a lot of wonderful stories about myself, enviable I wish I could've done it."
Ramblin' Jack Elliott

I might not have ever been anything in show biz if it hadn't been for the good fortune of knowing Woody [Guthrie] and being inspired to talk about him, which helped me get a foot in the door. It wasn't in the usual format for being a success in the music business, which is "Go to Nashville! Get your record deal! Get on the Grand Ole Opry!" Do this, get a manager. I didn't do it that way. Not much. It was different from your ordinary way of show biz. We just went buskin' around Europe. I happened to be the first one over there, so I wasn't competing with anybody, except other fellow Americans. I had Derroll Adams with me, from Oregon. The two of us, two American guys touring Europe, playing American folk music when there wasn't anyone else doing that.
