Subject: RE: lyr req: Now She's Gone (Kweskin recording)
And I've heard Shelley Posen of Finest Kind sing one that went:


If he's gone let him go, let him sink or let him swim
If he don't care for me, well I'm sure I don't for him
Why should I care I'm so happy young and free
And I can find another one when he is gone from me

Well, he loved me just a little bit, like the dew upon the corn
He put it on at evening time and took it off at morn

I seem to remember Shelley saying he learned it from another folklorist, but can't remember who.
