Bert Hansell Lyr Req: Old Black Joe (Stephen Foster) (64* d) RE: Ole Black Joe, some don't believe it exits 14 Aug 97


The reason that I didn't post it was that it was on someone else's site and I didn't have time to investigate whether that particular instance was copyright or not.

I agree with you about Stephen Foster. Most of the problems with his songs are with the language. For the times that he lived in he was quite progressive.

We learned the song as "Poor Old Joe" which doesn't carry any racial slur.

I don't see why other songs couldn't be selectively edited in a similar manner.

Bert.
