MMario, I'm amazed at how you get all of that material on here. That is really great. To already have both Child and Bronson printed out like this. And Stewie, thanks for the Virginia version. The Meadows of Dan are not too far south of where I live now. I've heard that recording and I would agree, she is jaunty, "cut him down, kill him if you can!" I think Dwight Diller sings that refrain, too, with his banjo version. I know that Old Bangum has been used for a lullaby, or at least a bedtime song. Many of these old ballads were/are. The longer the better, so I've been told. And the scarier the better, too.
