Subject: RE: req/add: Dinah / Save Dinah for the Night
My version of the song Dinah that was recorded on "Root That Mountain Down" is acurately transcribed in an earlier post. I heard David Morris of Ivydale, WV sing this version at the 2nd Annual Roane/Calhoun Old Time Music Festival in Chloe, WV on Sept. 8, 1973.
I learned it from this version which I recorded. David's source was indeed Aunt Jennie Wilson from Logan County.

At this time Dwight Diller played with The Morris Brothers, John and David. Dwight also cites Aunt Jennie as his source as do I although in my case it came through David.
