dpara Leadbelly and the Gallus Pole / Gallows Pole (24) Leadbelly and the Gallus Pole 02 Nov 99

So I have wondered for a number of years where did Leadbelly learn his version of "The Maid Freed from the Gallows." We do a folk residency in the Boonville, Mo. 4th grade every year, and while they're sanding their mouthbows I play them versions of the song, an Ozark version of which we had already sung with them. Included are a Kentucky version, Leadbelly's and the Led Zepplin version which I suspect came more from Leadbelly than an English source. Anybody know the answer? dave para
