Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Hogseye Man
Ah, thanks for that info, Q. Well, surprise!: it has been connected to "Hogeye." I am happy that my "instincts" were good, though of course that isn't to say there is necessarily anything really significant about the connection between the songs. Neither text (White or Northrup) has tunes. So it's unclear on what basis White said that his "Little David" was descended from "Hogeye". I'd like to think the phrasing of this version of the chorus (which is unique from many of the versions in the other thread Q mentions) was part of it.
