Subject: RE: Origins: Johnny Lad / Johnnie Lad
"The Kingston Trio did not sing Johnny Lad. There song was called Genie Glen a song written by former member Dave Gar."

The variant of "Johnny Lad" that the Kingston Trio sang (with the "Do you know my Johnny? He's down on yonder lea" lyrics) was titled "With You My Johnny." It's on the "Sold Out" album. And the former Kingston Trio member this refers to is Dave Guard, not "Gar."
