Thread Name: Origin Of John Henry--part TWO
Subject: RE: Origin Of John Henry--part TWO
Guess I'd better re-fresh my memory with that other thread Art, but just so you'll be able to sleep properly. Hmmmmm, you want the 'origin' of John Henry eh? Well here's my best guess:

It seems I remember that some said he was born in Texas....but ya know, others said he was born in Maine...but golly Art, I don't give a gosh darn where that poor boy was born, because he most undoubtedly was a steel driving man, lord lord (as you choose to see him/her) yes indeed, let me re-iterate, he WAS a steel driving man.

My apologies folks. I'll leave your thread alone now. It's been a good one!
