User Name Thread Name Subject Posted Origins:The Goodnight-Loving Trail (Utah Phillips) (40) RE: The midnight loving trail 26 Mar 02

Thanks for that site Kat and others and thanks Joe for the additional site. I also found it in the DB after realizing it was "Goodnight" instead of "Midnight".

Now if I could only find a recording of it (Peferably by Phillips.)

When I posted this thread I didn't know if it would turn out that the whole song was just a hoax with a hidden meaning that remained hidden to me. But I got a real piece of American History. I will show it to my Aussie friend--I think he will fall off his chair!

Charley, you might have met the Aussie who sings the song, although you wouldn't have heqrd him sing it .He hadn't finished off his version by then. His name is Greg Quinn and he plays the button accordian.
