RiGGy New CD by SF's Journey Home - Ain't Got Long (5) RE: New CD by SF's Journey Home - Ain't Got Long 25 Mar 13

Thanks for the pix plug, Joe !! I didn't have room on the CD jacket to say a special thank you to Jody Stecher for the title cut. In 1965 he and Peter Siegal went to the Bahamas and recorded I Ain't Got Long sung by Sammy Greene and a small group. He told me recently that the song was actually composed by a sponge fisherman/rhymer named Peter Eliot. He died falling out of a 2nd floor window of a bar into the alley below shortly after writing it.

Years later I heard it performed by former Library of Congress Folk Song archivist Joe Hickerson
