Jerry Friedman Lyr Req: Ballad of Billy Potts (6) RE: Anyone know of: Ballad of Billy Potts 25 Mar 99


Billie Potts was the subject of a long poem in free verse by the late great Robert Penn Warren, but I don't know anything about a popular ballad. For more information that you don't want, this subject was also used in a play by Albert Camus called Le Malentendu (=the misunderstanding), and I have a vague memory that the story is much older than 1815.
