Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Let Her Sleep Under the Bar / Lady in Red
I was working on a summer camp staff in 1958 when I learned that song from a buddy who was attending the University of California. He heard it from friends in a fraternity the previous fall, which would have put it one year prior to the printing of my copy of the Best book, "Sing Out." It likely has a long and traditional history, perhaps associated with academia. I lost that book for a time, but have recovered it after a long search. There are several gems in that publication and I have no idea if it is replaceable.
