Stewie, You answered the question I was going to ask. I was going to ask whether all the Nashville folks paid royalties to the Carter family for use of the melody. Now it is apparent from your post that A.P. Carter did not compose the melody but borrowed it from another source. I suppose that would now put this melody in the public domaine. SOL ZELLER
