Subject: RE: Origin: Long Black Veil
So, is this traditional, or not? I said trad, and people at the Mudcat Singaround corrected me.


My own message quotes Sing Your Heart Out, Country Boy saying it was written by Danny Dill and published in 1959.

But another message from Malcolm Douglas says the song is traditional, so who's a person to believe? Joe Offer or Malcolm Douglas? Personally, I'd believe Malcolm.
