Thread Name: Origin: Alabama Bound & Don't You Leave Me Here
Subject: origin and lyr: Alabama Bound

I'm have trouble understanding the origin of Alabama Bound, and how it relates to other songs.

As I understand it Alabama Bound originated along with the other main other title, "Don't You Leave Me Here" in the early 1900's.

The Traditional Ballad index gives two separate entries. Are they wrong?
