Thread Name: Origins: Who's Gonna Buy You Ribbons (Paul Clayton
Subject: RE: Origins: Who wrote:Who's Gonna Buy You Ribbons
And the subject of an cause celebre and out-of-court settlement in the 1960s. My Paul Clayton biography (expected publication 2007) has some detail on the matter, including its roots in a song Paul collected called "Who's Gonna Buy You(r) Chickens When I'm Gone."

Ahh, the folk process.
