Thread Name: Gender and the soprano voice
Subject: RE: Gender and the soprano voice
That's the words I know, too. I heard it first on a Nanci Griffith tape a friend made for me, and I think she was singing it with Townes van Zandt. Is that possible? (That's the trouble with sending each other tapes -- you sometimes don't get much detail on the songs or artists...) I've heard several people do that song and every one of them (at least the ones who attempt the yodel -- not everyone does) sings the yodel differently. Just depends on your own personal style, I guess.
