As I went out for to take a little walk I came upon that Wild Bill Jones He was a-walking and a-talking By my true lover's side I bid him to leave her alone. He said my age is twenty one years Too old to be controled So I drew my revolver from my side Destroyed that poor boy's soul
Wade Mainer (April 21, 1907 – September 12, 2011) was an American singer and banjoist. In addition, he innovated a two-finger banjo fingerpicking style, which was a precursor to modern three-finger bluegrass styles. Originally from North Carolina, Mainer's main influences came from the mountain music of his family.

He said my age is twenty-one Too old to be controlled I pulled my revolver from my side And I destroyed that poor boy's soul. He reeled and he staggered, and he fell to the ground And then he gave one dying moan He wrapped his arms around my little girl's neck Saying honey won't you take me home. So put them handcuffs on me boys And lead me to that freight car gate I have no friends or relations there No-one for to go my bail

In a career that began in 1934 and spanned almost six decades, Mainer transitioned from being a member of his brother's band into the founder of his own ensemble, the Sons of the Mountaineers, with whom he performed until 1953, when he became more deeply involved with his Christianity and left the music industry.
Wade Mainer obituary. One of the last survivors of 'hillbilly' music's radio heyday of the 1930s. The singer and banjo player Wade Mainer, who has died aged 104, was one of the last survivors of the golden radio days of "hillbilly" music in the 1930s, when he and his older brother JE and a few associates, billed as Mainer's Mountaineers, could be heard all over the south-east of the US. Sponsored by Crazy Water Crystals, the makers of a mineral laxative, they were featured in the Saturday night Crazy Barn Dance, broadcast on WBT radio, in Charlotte, North Carolina. The latter was included by the folklorist John Lomax in a pioneering record album of 1941, Smoky Mountain Ballads, which introduced Wade and other hillbilly performers to urban folk music circles.
