People of Note: The Double Bass Player Written in 1940 by Laurence McKinney and illustrated by Gluyas Williams. The men who have the saddest faces Are those who play the Double Basses Though deep in misery their cup They have to take it standing up, And sawing on a clothesline string They grunt and groan like anything.
