Lyr Req: Autherine (Pete Seeger)

DigiTrad:
BIG MUDDY
DON'T ASK WHAT A RIVER IS FOR
FLOWERS OF PEACE
I MIND MY OWN BUSINESS
MY GET UP AND GO HAS GOT UP AND WENT
MY OLD BROWN EARTH
OH, HAD I A GOLDEN THREAD
OLD DEVIL TIME
ONE GRAIN OF SAND
PRECIOUS FRIEND
QUITE EARLY MORNING
SAILING DOWN MY DIRTY STREAM
SAILING DOWN MY GOLDEN RIVER
SOUR CREAM
TURN, TURN, TURN or TO EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON
WALKING DOWN DEATH ROW
WELL MAY THE WORLD GO

Pete Seeger sang a song -- I'm not sure if he wrote it -- called "Autherine" on his LP called "Love SOngs for Friends and Foes." A friend of mine is looking for the lyrics.

Can anyone help? Thanks.

It goes like this, Mike:-

There's a girl I'm dreaming of, I haven't met her yet,
There's a girl I'm dreaming of, I never can forget:
She proved herself so faithful, so honest and so true,
Her beauty shines so brightly in this night we're passing through.

This girl I'm dreaming of has a face that's calm and clear,
She seems to stand for everything that I hold near and dear.
This girl I dream of I have never seen,
Her name is Autherine

I love you Autherine tho' I'm a married man,
I love you Autherine for I'm an American;
And as I love my country, I love those who make her great,
And the bravery of those who challenge ignorance and hate.

I love you Autherine, I'll tell this cock-eyed world,
How old jim crow was rocked back by one slip of a girl.
Millions of us know just what I mean:
I love you Autherine.

Janine

Here's Wikipedia's article on Autherine Lucy, the first black student to attend the University of Alabama in 1956.
