Thread Name: Lyr/Chords/Tune Req: Tom Dooley (Kingston Trio)
Subject: RE: Kingston Trio, Tom Dooley
I believe Alan Lomax in his "Folk Songs of North America" states that there was a real Tom Dooley, except his name was Tom Dula. He was hanged for the murder of his girlfriend. When I get home, I will look it up.
