Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Prison Work Song
Dear Dr. Finn,

My jaw has been open since the first word of your reply. I can see why you have been dubbed "Dr."! (Unless you have an MD or PhD ;o))

Jeepers! Where do you get all this information???!!??

I am almost fogetting to thank you so very much for all the information & lyrics. Though they all may not be the ones that fit "my" "Early in the Mornin' " they enrich my listening to it--which is a lot. It is one of those songs that's hard to burn out on.

Rest assured, prison, field holler, work, and now, logging songs are a solid part of my favorite genres (classical, soundtrack, early & original rock n roll, gospel, acoustic blues, shape note, bluegrass, all types of folk music + a few more).

Sea chanteys over prsion songs? I suppose . . . ;o)))))

Thank you very, very much for the education! I hope to receive more.
