|Les Benedict||Lyr/Tune Req: Ballad of Baby Doe / Baby Doe Tabor (9)||Baby Doe Tabor||09 Feb 97|
I'm looking for the lyrics and tune to a song about Baby Doe, the woman who married mining millionaire Tabor in Colorado in the 1880's. I remember hearing a recording in the late 1950's by an unknown (to me) country artist. Partial lyrics -- "... he dressed her in velvet the color of wine, his name was Tabor and he owned the mine..." and the chorus had the lines, "...while the wind was a sighin' Baby Doe lay a dyin'..." Thanks for your help.
