Thread Name: Origins: Springhill Disaster/Ballad of Springhill
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Springhill Disaster
Ian, are you sure that Ewan wrote it? I've been singing 'The Ballad of Springhill', which I believe is the correct title, for the best part of 40 years, and always understood that this was written by Peggy Seeger. This seems to be confirmed by what's on the 'Web, to the extent of "© 1961 Stormking Music". I wouldn't want it to be incorrectly credited.
