Southern Cross The Dog
Moorhead, Mississippi 38761
Made popular by W.C. Handy's 1914 song "Yellow Dog
or "Yellow Dog Blues". In this town, the Southern RR tracks
cross directly over the Yazoo Delta RR tracks. Later, The Yazoo Delta RR
somehow became nicknamed The Yellow Dog. Moorhead was a
bustling place in the early years, even though the population was
always less than 2,000. It was a popular place for
Bluesmen such as
Robert Johnson, Howlin Wolf, and Willie Brown.
