Thread Name: Top Ten Old Ballads
Subject: RE: Top Ten Old Ballads
Some favorites:

Bob Coltman's variant of 'The Hunting of the Cheviot' -He calls it "Chevy Chase"

'Sheath and Knife,' especially as sung by Helen Schneyer

Woody Guthrie's 'Tom Joad' - I know it's not THAT old, but it really distills the story.
