Thread Name: The Water is Wide - one more time!
Subject: RE: The Water is Wide - Waly, Waly
Ah, Milt Okun wrote the song, eh? Milt was musical director for Peter, Paul and Mary and other 60's folk acts. I wonder how many centuries-old songs he copyrighted. This one and quite a few others, I'd reckon.
Folk Music: An Index to Recorded Sources is up today, and has a long list of recordings of this song.
