You could try asking her via her web site, http://www.sallyrogers.com   which does contain contact info.
I met her in the early 80s, when she was on tour in England. She was travelling light, so borrowed my banjo when she played out local folk club. She was a memorably nice person.
Quack!
GtD.

There's a video YouTube where The Milltown Band performs APPALACHIAN ROUND followed by the traditional song WHITE OAK MOUNTAIN and the instrumental KITCHEN GIRL. The accompanying text gives these lyrics:


WHITE OAK MOUNTAIN

Oh, do you remember that rocky mountain side where we sat down to rest?
You promised you'd be my blue-eyed boy with the sun goin' down in the west.

I wish to the Lord I'd never been born, or died when I was young.
I'd never have seen your blue eyes shine, or heard your lyin' tongue.

Now hand me down my old white coat, it's a-hangin' there on the nail.
Before this time tomorrow night I'll be out on that long-lost trail.

I never will believe what no man says, though his eyes be blue or brown,
Unless he's hangin' from the scaffold high sayin' "Darlin', I can't come down."


Another version of WHITE OAK MOUNTAIN, as sung by Lily May Ledford, was posted here.

Mike Seeger also recorded WHITE OAK MOUNTAIN.

Thanks to everyone for the help :)
