Well, lets see.... a visit to West Va. in 1963 or so by Phil Ochs & Eric Anderson (and I've always wondered if possibly reading Night Comes...copyright 1962/63)produced
Hills of West Virginia and Anderson's reworking of the 'trad'
Blind Fiddler

Then there's Billy Ed Wheeler's great Red-Winged Blackbird; not in the DT- thought it was in a thread a while back but can't seem to find it.

Best, Greg
