Thread Name: JOHN HENRY solved????
Subject: RE: JOHN HENRY solved????
For what's is worth ,the immortal Lonnie Donegan recorded his version in 1954: released as the B-side of Rock Island line....well the resrt is history. And he sang (if memory serves me correctly)

They took John Henry down to Washington
And they buried him in the sand
