Thread Name: Origins: songs about girl w/ promiscuous father
Subject: RE: seeking song about girl w/ promiscuous father
IMHO (and limited knowledge) I learned about this song when a band called Morphine did a version in the 90s. I've heard since (I believe from American Routes) that there are many versions of this song with long roots in Jamaican music and that there are many, many blues versions.
