Thread Name: Lyr Req: Down in the Cane Break? / ...Canebrake
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Down in the Cane Break
My mother, who came from Alabama, sang this song to my sister and myself, when we were small. In my turn I have sung this to both my own children and grand children.

I see someone has suggested that a canebrake applies to middle lower Louisiana. In fact I believe that this term applied all over the Southern States where sugarcane was grown.
