Thread Name: Lyr Add: The New So Long It's Been Good to Know...
Subject: RE: The New So Long It's Been Good...

Woody used the traditional tune of Billy the Kid for the stanzas of So Long, It's Been Good to Know You, but as far as I know he composed the tune he used for the refrain. I guess I should have written this instead:

Original words by Woody Guthrie.
Music adapted from the traditional Billy the Kid by Woody Guthrie.

New words by Joel Landy & Stephen L. Suffet © 2001.

Please forgive me. :-)
