GUEST,silver Lyr Req: Bally Mena (from Harry Belafonte) (46) RE: Lyr Req: Bally Mena (from Harry Belafonte) 16 Jan 18

I have listened to both Harry Belafonte's and the Nassau String Band's versions of the song on Youtube. Oddly, they both miss the point: "When she come back she was white"!
Hooray for Gordon Bok, a true folksinger who listened to the people and did not over-research. A brilliant guitarist to boot.
