Subject: RE: Goodnight Irene - Adult Version
Dear mr. Parkes, et. al., According to oscar Brand (who explained it carefully on his radio show) what Leadbelly sang was "I'll guess you in my dreams" and when he was asked to explain said it meant something like "I'll guess (what) you (are doing) in my dreams." I heard "get" also when i first heard those recordings.
