georgeward Lyr Req/Add: Keep On Keepin On (Len Chandler) (23) RE: Lyr Req/Add: Keep On Keepin On (Len Chandler) 30 Jul 08

Len recorded his song on his Columbia album 'Lovin' People' (1968, I think). He did it on Pete Seeger's "Rainbow Quest" TV series. You can see a much younger Len doing the song for a much younger Pete on (where else ?) YouTube here:

It's a long time ago, but I think Len's song reminded MLK of the phrase. May have been the other way 'round.

By me, it's just an old, old southern saying, black and white.
