Bill Lyr Req: Rosin the Bow? / The Good in Living (21) RE: Rosin the Bow 15 Dec 97

Howdy All,

Other songs that I know of (mostly thanks to Pete Seeger recordings, but I've also found them elsewhere) that use the Rosin the Beau tune for, "I've travelled this wide world all over" include: Lincoln and Liberty, Too; Old Settler's Song or Acres of Clams (from the Pacific Northwest); and Acres of Clams (from the Clamshell Alliance demonstrations about the Seabrook, New Hampshire Nuclear Plant written by Charlie King). There have been other sets of words to the tune from what I've heard. Both versions of Acres of Clams can be found in Rise Up Singing, and the Old Settler's Song is in DT.
