ddw in windsor slave revolts (22) RE: slave revolts 02 Mar 99


Shawn,

Interesting discussion you've sparked here, but I was starting to wonder if all of it was helpful in locating songs about slave revolts. Thought I'd jump in with the only story-song I can think of on a similar topic. The problem is, I don't know its origins and have no idea if it came from a black or white tradition or, for that matter, if it's a recently penned thing.

The only version I've ever heard of it is by Willie Nelson and it's called Blackjack County Chain. I didn't check if it's in Cowpie, but if it's not, I could give you the words for it if you'd like.

cheers ddw
