Subject: RE: What is Folk? IN SONG.
"But it's not the people's property if you know the owner's name."

Just because you made it
doesn't mean you own it.
Once a song has come to life,
it's everybody's song.
Just be glad you did your thing,
and made a song that people sing,
now that song is on the wing,
it's everybody's song.

It's as true for a song
as it is for a child,
there's a time to let go,
when it's time for running wild.
You can't hold it down,
you've done the best you could -
there's a song in the air,
and there's singing in the wood.
