Thread Name: Origin: Sloop John B
Subject: Sloop John B
Saw a talented pair of acoustic musicians, King Oedipus, the other night at the Ivyland Coffee House. They closed with Sloop John B, but said that it was authored by Carl Sandburg and Fred Hayes from the Weavers. "Taint true, is it?" I mean it's like the way Dylan 'wrote' House of the Rising Sun, right?
