Isn't there a version of Shule Aroon on the LONG BLACK VEIL compilation? Or had I been listening to overmany Weavers at that point?
I'll admit it does sound odd from a male singer...
The song does also provide a few good lines for parodies, like Anne Passovoy's "The False Young Man with the Microphone": "I'll sell my rack, I'll sell my reel/I'll buy a steel guitar."
(That's the one about musical copyright theft that ends "So never trust a roving man, whoever he may be,/If his hand's upon a microphone and not upon your knee."
