In the Wolf Collection there's a song called "Battle Moses" sung by Jimmie Driftwood. It's really "Little Moses" and the lyrics scan directly to the Carter Family so...

Should I enter this in my A-B tradition and PD gospel songs? Obviously the title is a mishearing...

What would you do? I don't know if I should perpetuate this or correct it- lol.

Maybe Driftwood had some copyright issues, don't get it,

I suspect that this should have been "Little Moses." And someone (whoever recorded it) misheard.
