lefthanded guitar Your favorite version of Barbara Allen (31) Your favorite version of Barbara Allen 27 Jul 19


I have heard this song by many performers over the years, from famous singers and 'regional' talent. I was recently listening to the Emmy Lou Harris version from the movie Songcatcher, and would have to rate this as my favorite. How about yours? ( And any thoughts you may have about the narrative and/or evolution of the song are also welcome)
