Saw a programme on Channel 4 last year about the origins of the song. It featured Pete Seeger and some South African groups that featured on Paul Simons' Graceland album talking about it.Nothing was resolved as I recall and some U.S. publisher continues to claim royalties from around the world- what's new! By the way I wrote the "House of The Rising Sun" if anyone's interested -just thought I'd put it on record for future reference.
