Thread Name: Lyr Add: Norah / Noah / Let Your Hammer Ring
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: NORAH (hammer song)
'Norah', for Noah, is still occasionally heard in rural eastern Georgia, even among some whites. Sadly, the old dialects are dying, but a few pockets remain. Some word usages are proudly preserved. One I found common at the time of WW2 was that both cavalry and calvary were pronounced calvary.
