User Name Thread Name Subject Posted Lyr Req: Way Out There (Bob Nolan) (12) Pete Seeger train song 11 Jun 01

There is a song that Pete Seeger sings on several of the "Rainbow Quest" programs. It is up-tempo with a lot of yodeling.

I would like to know who composed it. Seeger doesn't give credit to anyone including himslef. What is the title of the song? Are the chords/music in any songbook?

Here is the first verse to help identify it.:

A lonely spot I know where no man will go
where the shadows have all the room
I was riding free on the old SP, hummin' a southern tune
When a man come along made me hush my song
Kicked me off away out there


Thanks for any information.
