GUEST,Sandy Paton Origins: 'Johnson Johnson is my name' A MYSTERY! (28) RE: Origins: 'Johnson Johnson is my name' A MYSTER 09 Oct 04

The version of Two Brothers mentioned above was sung for me by bBen Mandel and I used it on my New World recording of song traditions in the Northeast (they chose to title the album "Brave Boys - Musical Traditions in New England" even though a number of the songs and tunes were collected in New York -- not a New England State. Ben mandel had learned this remarkable children's version of the classic Child ballad when he was a young lad growing up in a New York orphanage. He concluded the ballad with the "Johnson, Johnson is my name" quatrain. That's the way he learned it. The New World recording is currently available as a CD and may be ordered via Folk-Legacy's web site.
