Bud Savoie Derivation of 'Kisses Sweeter than Wine' (60* d) RE: Derivation of 'Kisses Sweeter than Wine' 18 Aug 00


I don't have my written references in front of me now, but I seem to recall that Leadbelly was singing the dead cow song before Kisses was written. Leadbelly and Hays were cronies, and I could see that Hays liked the melody and put some words to it when he was in a romantic mood. I believe that Pete Seeger said the dead cow version was the elder.
