Doctor John Yellow Gal (42) Yellow Gal 17 Oct 99

Lead Belly often refers to Yellow Gals in his songs, often in a disparaging way. It sounds to me like a girl of mixed race but in "On A Monday", "He ain't gonna ring them yellow women's door bells", which sounds like the term may refer to a prostitute. Can anyone enlighten please? Dr John
