Subject: RE: Origin: Turtledove Done Drooped His Wings
Interesting. I am looking for something that a non-believer can sing when a group drifts into "God songs." This is a great song and the religious elements are indirect enough that I might feel comfortable singing it.
When Bessie Jones was at the Country Dance & Song Society's Pinewoods Camp, I bought her book, "Step It Down" rather than a record or tape (no CD's then). This song is not in the book, but it was fun looking back at the book.
