GUEST,dustyhaze Lyr Req: Down in the Cane Break? / ...Canebrake (49) RE: Lyr Req: Down in the Cane Break / Canebrake 10 Jun 08

My cousin and I used to sing this around the campfire with our parents and grandparents during the 40's in Mississippi. When we compared notes, he said his version contained yalla girl. If so, I'm sure the reason I sing pretty girl is because my parents tried to teach me respect toward the Blacks who lived and worked for us. I am glad to see your as I have been looking for the words since I heard James Coburn sang a version several years ago.
