Thread Name: Origins: Dixie
Subject: RE: Origins: Dixie
Hays wrote another song under the pseudonymn of "Jerry Blossom." See the cover of "That Southern Wagon"(1862) [from the Levy collection], where the composer is "Jerry Blossom (W.S.H.)." My guess is that Hays wrote the words, not the tune, thus the composer's name is "Dixie, Jr."
