Thread Name: Joni Mitchell -Dylan is 'a plagiarist'
Subject: RE: Joni Mitchell -Dylan is 'a plagiarist'
Dominic Behan used to introduce his 'Patriot Game' with...You've probably heard this by Bob Dylan....with the wrong words' referring to Dylan's use of the tune for 'With god on our side'. The tune is probably older than Behan as well. ====

Of course the tune is older ~~ I once pointed out to Dominic that he had actually used the traditional tune of one of the best-known sets of 'The Nightingale Sing/Bold Grenadier'; & he thought for a moment and said that indeed that was so, tho he hadn't concsciously registered the fact till then. 'Plagiarism' can occur in more than one way.
