|JB3||Lyr Req: Down in Yon Forest (from John Jacob Niles (60* d)||RE: down in yon forrest||04 May 99|
John Jacob Niles had a reputation for "collecting" songs and then later, claiming he wrote them. Anyone know the truth about this? He certainly wasn't very charitable about the singers he collected from, called them names, etc. from what I remember reading. The tunes we have thru him are beautiful, however, including the above and "I wonder as I wander"
