winniemih Origins: Going to the West (42) RE: song search: 'Going to the West' 01 Oct 00


Laurie Lewis and Tom Rosin do "Going to the West" on the C.D. Laurie Lewis and Her Bluegrass Pals. They arranged the song in the form of a conversation between a man and woman, singing alternating lines. It works very well this way. I first heard the song done by Bill Staines who , I agree does a great version also. By the way, the liner notes on the L.L. c.d. state that they learned it at a workshop years ago, and that the origin was the Byron Arnold book of Alabama folk songs.
