Subject: RE: Origin: Long Black Veil
Those of us who learned it from Joan Baez, who sings it *goodly*, always flinch when we hear people singing "there were few at the scene" instead of "the people at the scene" even though "few" is how it turns out to have been written.

Better to flinch at why if you were gonna stab somebody on a *dark* night you would choose the town hall light to do it 'neath.

Need to make sure you've got the right stabbee?
