Transcription Mystery Disc #187
Take It Back and Change it For A Boy
The song is about the foibles of exchanging an unwanted female offspring for a male heir. The singer is a young man with a practiced voice, his guitar work is simple but consistent. In the background you can hear a household, mom and the kids making a racket while he's trying to record this demo. There is no date, and no other information. This make of disc seems to date to the late 1940s so I'm going with that wide net in lieu of other information.
