GUEST,fox4zero Lyr Req: appalachian murder ballads (34) RE: Lyr Req: appalachian murder ballads 11 Apr 01


John Hardy Little Grave in Georgia and other Mary Phagan murder songs. In all of the variations of Wexford Girl, Oxford Girl, Banks of the Ohio, Omie Wise, etc...the reason for the murders never occurred to me until I heard one version of Omie Wise. I must have been the dumbest and/or most naive person on earth! It never occurred to me that the female victim was pregnant and the male "perp" or ("poip" as the cops say in NYC) did not wish to be encumbered with matrimony or child support. Henry Lee (Get down, get down little Henry Lee and stay all night with me....? Young Hunting in Britain. Railroad Bill (...he ain't so bad, he killed his momma, shot a round at his dad). Larry
