I have an old folk LP by Jackie DeShannon called, "In the Wind" on Imperial Records, year released, 196?   Year not on LP or on record jacket.
She does mostly folk cover songs and I think one original.

Jackie does a nice cover of Eric Von Schmitt's "Baby Let Me Follow You Down." However, she sings throughout the song, "Baby Let Me Follow You Round."

Only one time does she actually sings "Baby Let Me Follow You Down" near the end of the song, but mostly sings the line as, "Baby Let Me Follow You Round."

Does anyone actually know the reason she would have changed the word from "Down" to "Round" when covering this song?

I listened to the song on the album and I also wonder why Jackie DeShannon sings "Baby Let Me Follow You Round"? Like Lin said, only once Jackie sings the correct words and that is strange because she got it right the one time but keeps singing many times throughout the song, "Baby Let Me Follow You Round"
Wonder if it was intentional or she just didn't realize her error at the time when recording it?

Blind Boy Fuller and Reverend Gary Davis were a bit more to the point in the song(s) Von Schmidt derived it from.

Fuller: Mama let me lay it on you.

Davis: Baby let me lay it on you.
