Chris in Wheaton Lyr/Chords Req: Lorena (21) RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Chords for Lorena 22 Apr 04


Lorena was in the original Old Town School of Folk Music book, so it has been sung in the folk community for some time - the book with chords may still be for sale. Nice book if you can get it.
I think the best version is by John Harford. I had an even better version that John did with Peter O on PHC, but I seem to have lost the tape in moving.
Was it true that Lorena was banned in Union and Confederate camps, because it resulted in increased desertions?
When I do Lorena, I say that it will be part of a 50's medley - it gets a good laugh when I say it was written is 1850 whatever.
Great work as always, guys.
