Subject: RE: Origins: Brown Skin Girl- folksong from Grenada
Jim Dixon posted the Span-Belafonte lyrics back in Two thousand and ought two, thread 49484, linked at the top of this thread.

Norman Span was better known as King Radio, discussed above. He did a good version of Mathilda, also picked up by Belafonte. "His Man Smart but ..." is perhaps his best.
