Re: Miff with the Arkansas Travellers in Carmichael's "Boneyard Shuffle."

Albert, you correctly identified similarities between "Boneyard Shuffle" and "Waiting At The End". The (almost unbearably) technical explanation is that in both songs the bridge drops from the tonic to the submediant, then moves to its secondary dominant chord - and back. In plain English: for four bars, the chord progression is identical!
