Thread Name: The Water is Wide - one more time!
Subject: RE: The Water is Wide
Burl Ives did "Waly Waly" throughout his career.

But what does this mean? Is this where THE BLUES' sly references and double entendres come from? ;-)

I thrust my hand into some sweet bush,
Thinking the sweetest flower to find,
But I pricked my finger all to the bone,
And I left the sweetest flower alone.
