ddw in windsor Lyr/Tune Req: Ballad of Sam Hall (28) RE: lyrics and music to Ballad of Sam Hall? 04 Mar 99

Hi Ben,

One of my favorite versions of this song is by Josh White, I believe from his 25th Anniversary album, but I only have it on an old reel-to-reel and didn't take detailed notes back in those days. I just spent about half an hour going through all the CDs listed on his Web site, but didn't see it listed on any of them. It's worth the search if you're into that kind of thing. Josh makes it a little more vitriolic that the version in the DT by making each last line "god damn your eyes" and adding a truly evil laugh after telling the parson to kiss my ruddy bum. Good hunting.
