Thread Name: Add: Nevada Jane (Utah Phillips)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: & story behind Nevada Jane, please
Hi guys, lurker jumping in here. As I recall from Haywood's autobiography, Nevada Jane went Christian Scientist somewhere along the line, converted the kids, at which point Big Bill bailed out of the relationship and went off to Chicago. This is probably why folks challenged the song on its historical accuracy.
