Thread Name: Leadbelly and the Gallus Pole / Gallows Pole
Subject: RE: Leadbelly and the Gallus Pole / Gallows Pole
Lead Belly recorded a version of The Gallis Pole in 1939 (the Gallis is not a misspelling). It is available on Youtube.
Read somewhere that Gallis was the warden, but I can find no reference to Warden Gallis on the net, yet.
