Bert Hansell Lyr Req: Old Black Joe (Stephen Foster) (64* d) RE: Ole Black Joe, some don't believe it exits 19 Aug 97


It's a dilemma isn't it?

We don't have too many choices.

1. We can just not sing the songs and lose some good songs.
I know many songs that I don't sing because they are insulting to a certain group of people. (e.g. songs from "The Exit Visa")

2. We can change a word or phrase so that we don't offend people.
I sing one or two of these, just changing a word or omitting a verse here and there. ("I'm glad we had a nice quiet day")3. We can sing them regardless of who we hurt.
I'm just not going to do that.

Bert
