Interesting that your last message mentions Haul Away Joe.

I just got back from singing folk songs to a 6th grade class, and they sang Haul Away Joe along with me. I had them imagine the rhythm of men working together pulling on a rope. They loved it. I also gave them a handout that included a webpage of links, with the Mudcat/DT at the top. We may have even more youngsters show up.
