OK so I was not exactly right (not exactly wrong either) I realized when talking to my wife about this subject that I do change some lyrics to meet the demands of the audience today. I change old sottish ballads (or is that scottish:) so that my audience can understand what I'm singing. I expect negative criticism from the purists on that. The songs still convey the TRUTH without being totaly obscure. In fact I realized that when I first started teaching Art History (I had to they wouldn't let me teach all pottery classes)27 years ago I could find little about women in The usual Art History Books. Now I find a great deal more in even the most ordinary books on Women, African American, Native American, and Oriential Artists, so Yes KAT there has truly been a change in awareness since the 60s. AND Nan the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and many camp organizations have great little songbooks with all kinds of truly American songs, if you are looking for some neat sitting-around-the-campfire types.
