Bud Savoie Help: American patriotic songs (51* d) RE: Help: American patriotic songs 03 Sep 00


The Baez song is "East Virginia" and is on her first Vanguard album, "JOAN BAEZ," now re-released on CD, VMD-2077. Vanguard is at 1299 Ocean Avenue, Santa Monica, CA 90401. Her version is a Kentuckian one, gotten from Jean Ritchie. There are many more.

By the way, the verse goes: "I was born in East Virginia, North Carolina I did go. There I loved a fair young maiden, her name and age I do not know." With variants.
