: : Can someone please enlighten me as to the origin of 'elgin movement'? Blues artist Robert Johnson makes reference to 'elgin movement' in his song Walkin' Blues.
: Elgin is a watch. Maybe that is the origin. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elgin_Watch_Company
: : A good suggestion that certainly fits historically. The notion of 'elgin movement' as clockwork could work in context of the song's lyric. Thanks.
