Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: Keep On Keepin On (Len Chandler)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req/Add: Keep On Keepin On (Len Chandler)
Whether or not Len Chandler or Curtis Mayfield or Robert Crumb originated it, the phrase "keep on keepin' on" became very popular, and widely used, in the US youth culture (or "counterculture") of the 1960s-70s.
By the time Bob wrote "Tangled Up in Blue," the phrase had become extremely commonplace, and not explicitly associated with any one particular song or other reference.
