Thread Name: Lyr Req: Your Long Journey / Your Lone Journey
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Long Journey
Was listening to different Youtube performances of this song tonight and came across the following comment, posted just a few days ago, under the performance by The New Brownstone Boys.
Yesterday I was on the phone with Doc Watson, my friend of nearly 45 years. His wife Rosa Lee wrote the tune and Doc helped with the last verse. ALSO, the name of the tune, according to Doc is Your Lone Journey. Modern musicians changed the name but it is Your Lone Journey. Thought you might wish to know so that when you are next on stage, you can credit Rosa Lee as the author. Keep playing!!! Fred Coon (The banjo players among us will know who Fred Coon is.)
