Thread Name: Strawberry Roan - ( & Sheepherder version?)
Subject: RE: Strawberry Roan
But have we found the sheep version of "Strawberry Roan" that was requested in the first post?

I put three-wing (redundant) harvesting marks on the versions posted in this thread and in another thread (click) on this song. All of the versions are a bit different, so it's worth looking at all of them. Is it worth harvesting each of them for the Digital Tradition? I dunno. I'll scan and post some other versions and sequels and related songs, and then I'll ask Dick Greenhaus to stop by and choose the ones he wants.
Louie, if you have the version from Fletcher's songbook, I'd like to see it - but it needs to be exactly what Fletcher had, punctuation and all. Send me a personal message if you need help learning how to copy-paste your message so you can make corrections and get it exactly right.
