Thread Name: Origins: Johnson Boys/Johnson Gals
Subject: RE: Origin Johnson Boys/Johnson Gals
Same lyrics, (Johnson Boys) except for the last verse, were sung by (the original) NLCR on Folkways # 2398, recorded in 1961. That may be the source of the North Carolina version. Unfortunately I lost the liner notes to that one. Perhaps someone else has them.
