Subject: Len Chandler's version of Green Green Rocky Road

Hi we all know that Green Green Rocky Road was written by Len Chandler and that it's a "hit" for Dave Van Ronk. Actually it's probably the most famous Len Chandler song. But why isn't it on any of Len's album? I can't find Len's own version of the song. It's not on YouTube either. Where can I find Len's own version of the song?

Len co-wrote the song.

"I had the great and rare honor to interview songwriter and activist Chandler in 2007; large portions of our interview appeared throughout Keep on Pushing and on this site. Chandler spoke highly of Kaufman, Van Ronk, and of course Bob Dylan, who detailed their shared history and collaborations in his book, Chronicles. And yet, it is "Green, Green Rocky Road," a song Chandler never recorded, that may be one of his most enduring achievements, despite the fact he was a singing hero of the Civil Rights Movement (his contributions to African American/US political and social history remain obscured and inexplicably, largely unsung)."
