By the way, John Lomax did see Harry Stephens again. He recorded Stephens singing the Night Herding Song, and explaining it, for the Library of Congress during the 1940s. It appears on their "Cowboy Songs, Ballads and Cattle Calls" CD available from Rounder Records. I don't have the CD on me at the moment, so I don't know the exact date, but all the tracks were recorded between 1941 and 1948. Harry Stephens's speaking voice sounds just like John Wayne's!
