Thread Name: Strawberry Roan - ( & Sheepherder version?)
Subject: RE: Strawberry Roan - Sheepherder version?

kat, Lomax isn't aware it's by Fletcher in the 1916 Cowboy but he does credit him in the 1938 edition. In that one he uses the text direct from Songs of the Sage.

I think this one and "Night-Hearding Song" are the only songs in the book attributed (rightly or not) to a single author.
