Thread Name: Lyr Req: *one verse* of Ella Speed
Subject: Lyr. Req: *one verse* of Ella Speed
There is already a version of this on file, but it doesn't contain the verse that I need. Something about:

"The women all heard that Ella Speed was dead, [they went home and ----------------- red(?)] . . ."

"Red" could be completely wrong. I have two recordings of this (one by Leadbelly and one by a guy named Dick Staber) and the words are completely unintelligible on each. --Thank you.
