Subject: RE: Lyr Req: I told the whippoorwill I told the
A good old song which I first heard by Oscar 'Red'Wilson from Ledger, North Carolina. Red who was part of the Ledford family (Probably best known is Steve)was a fiddle player mainly but also sang and played guitar having recorded on King with Wade Mainer's band. Sadly I learend that Red passed away in June of this year leaving a big gap in the musical activities in that area.

I have several impromputu unrehearsed versions of Red performing this with a female partner (whoever happened to be at the session at the time)where they would add a part of another song as a sort of chorus they would sing:

No fooling who do you love
Who are you thinking of
No fooling
No fooling who do you miss
When we hug and kiss
No fooling

Does anybody else know of a version of this song incorporating the above.
