Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'Going up North' - John Jackson
Thanks, 12-Stringer - that is very helpful. On listening, I'm sure you're correct about the chickens and the 'fore day.
By googling, I learned that some of the same lyrics appear in variants of Fox Chase (you have to scroll down to see them) and in Sam Collins' My Road is Rocky
I'm not sure about the dime, but it could be. Anyway, I have a singable song with more verses than I had before. Thanks!
