Subject: RE: Origins: Dixie
I know a lot has been said here, some thoughtful debate. I've skimmed it, but not read in detail. I've also skimmed Nathan's article. Anyway, without wanting to repeat something that has already been discussed: Has anyone heard about a claim that Emmett got the song from cotton loading stevedores in Mobile? If not, I'll post a source.
