Moving Day

That it is: the day that my wife and I say “Farewell!” to our house and home of 36 1/2 years.

I’ve known and loved Jim Kweskin’s recording of “Moving Day” for way longer than that.

I can think of no better soundtrack for this day.

Take it, Jim.


“Moving Day” was published in 1906. Andrew B. Sterling wrote the words and Harry von Tilzer composed the music.

The song was first recorded by Charlie Poole & The North Carolina Ramblers sometime between 1926 and 1931.

Jim Kweskin and The Neo-Passe Jazz Band included their rendition of “Moving Day” on their truly joyous 1967 album, Jump For Joy.
