Subject: RE: Wild Boar: History, Lyrics & Discussion
Lighter, thanks so much for this version from Dee Hicks. I had heard about this version from my friend, Bobby McMillon, but had not been able to find it. I think Dee Hicks probably recorded it, but I have not been able to find that recording currently available. Any information on that?

Who was Dee Hicks' father? Didn't this family come from the Beech Mountain Hicks in North Carolina? If so, there may be some connection between this version and that of Rena Hicks of Beech Mountain,NC, and of Sam Harmon (from Cades Cove, TN, cf discussion above). T.O.M.
