GUEST,Anonny Mouse Gypsy Rover a real folk song? (96* d) RE: Gypsy Rover a real folk song 27 Jan 06


Y'all ain't gonna wanna hear this--but the KINGSTON TRIO did a pretty fair rendition on an album, musta been about '61-or maybe early '62-right after David Guard left and John Stewart came in. From the sounds of it, seems they mighta borrowed the Clancys' version-or something close to it. So--I suppose that makes it NOT a "real folk song" now? LOL Interesting to read all the variations on this one...the KT's version the "Gypsy rover" turned out to be the lord of the lands. Rich dude. Girl did o.k. even tho Daddy didn't like him at first.
