Thread Name: Lyr Req: If it Wasn't for Dicky (Lead Belly)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: If it weren't for Dickey
I don't have Leadbelly's version. There are two 19th century versions in the Scarce Songs 1 file on my website, along with notes on the history of the song. Look for 'Drumion Dubh' in the table of contents, and click on it. It's a big file but that one is near the beginning so you won't have to wait for the whole file to load.
