I know, I've seen those lyrics in Rise Up Singing, Shad. In my opinion, they are quite beautiful...they only problem is, the syllables don't really scan right, so it sounds kinda funny when you sing it. "By yon clear mountain stree-eem" and "the summer sun has see-een"...i you see what I mean. A slight rewrite to fix the syllables would strengthen it...and it would also be part of the oral tradition. Wow! The folk tradition at work right here before our very eyes! And thanks for the info Micheal Mhor...that's a rather amazing achievment for Sandy Paton. I had no idea! The things you learn here....I LOVE MUDCAT!
