Subject: RE: Help: Follow the Drinking Gourd meanings
Just looked at the DT version. Heard many I like better, but - most of all - can that guy (Paul Campbell?) really copyright what I've always thought was a true traditional song, created by blacks in the south, for the underground railroad??? Seems like dirty pool to me; I bet somebody can explain, but is it REALLY ethical??

Cheers, BK
