Subject: RE: Lyr Req: WWII Song:'Come bury me out in Benghazi'
I always have heard 'Blue' as the desert rather than 'Bluey' perhaps in reference to the relentless blue sky.
Last verse isn't in any other versions but it looks familiar.
Are you sure Lomax's 1938 version isn't one of the other' Bury Me out on the prairie' songs? or could he be confusing the 2 songs?
Will keep a look-out for these 2 books. Thanks, Jon.
