Thread Name: Origins: Brown Skin Girl- folksong from Grenada
Subject: RE: Origins: Brown Skin Girl- folksong from Grenada
Ignore last post. copy and pasted if this isn't against the rules. Sorry:

I am trying to find information about variants of it, such as any traditional verses. The only information i can find is that the song is from Grenada and the chorus, "Brown skin girl/gal, stay home and mind baby, I'm going away on a sailing boat and if I don't come back, throw away the damn baby' is traditional. Many singers who perform it add verses, but are there any in collected versions, or any collections which contain this song?
