Thread Name: Origins: Oh Dem Golden Slippers
Subject: RE: oh dem golden slippers
Last summer at a fiddler's picnic I played and sang a couple of verses of Golden Slippers in a jam with several pickers I didn't know. Afterwards, one of the fiddlers said to me "I've been playing that tune for 50 years and sure didn't know there were words to it !" It always amazes me the different routes that tunes and words take.
