Thread Name: Lyr Req: Barbara Allen (different versions)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'Barbara Allen' different versions
As I have related elsewhere, particularly in interview which Bob Thomson & I did with him year before he died, & which I pub'd in Folk Review in 1953, Harry Cox declared adamantly that anyone who sang Barbara Allen with the rose&briar had it wrong — 'They're mixed up,' he declared, ' that don't belong there, that comes in Lord Lovely [sic]!'
