He eventually meets Mary Rachel who tells him the song he heard belonged to someone and that she's forbidden to tell anyone about it. When she finally reveals it to him, Floyd learns that his future is preordained. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

When Floyd takes off from the shack with all the instruments in it because he hears Mary Rachel's tune, the straps for the guitar and the tape recorder continuously switch positions as he runs through the woods. Sometimes the guitar strap is over the recorder strap, and other times the recorder strap is on top. See more »

Quotes

[opening narration]
Narrator: Mr. Floyd Burney, a gentleman songster in search of song, is about to answer the age-old question of whether a man can be in two places at the same time. As far as his folk song is concerned, we can assure Mr. Burney he'll find everything he's looking for, although the lyrics may not be all to his liking. But that's sometimes the case - when the words and music are recorded in the Twilight Zone.

His quest for new material
31 January 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Gary Crosby stars in this haunting Twilight Zone episode about a rockabilly folk singer looking for some new material. His quest takes him into the real piney woods of the Appalachins where he meets up with a strange young girl played by Bonnie Beecher.

Bonnie's got a song all right something like Hang Down Your Head Tom Dooley and she sings the song which tells a story to Crosby. Gary likes it all right, but pretty soon he becomes part of the story and it's clear he'll not be getting back to American Bandstand any time soon.

Gary who did trash his father in that infamous memoir did in fact have a pretty good career as a character actor which continued even after Bing died. He's pretty good here in a role that showed him to best advantage. Beecher's a haunting young thing as well.

A nicely done story at almost the tail end of the Twilight Zone series run.
