Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Newfoundland Mermaid song
Peace, so we meet again!
When Great Big Sea put out the latest CD with that song on it there was some question if it was traditional. (I know as GBS junkie) There was question if GBS had violated copyright on the song, and people said it was a modern song, written in fact by the same guy who wrote "Cover of the Rolling Stone", as in Gonna buy five copies for my mother, Rolling Stone.... Is that Shel Silverstien? but I have heard nothing since. Hmmmmmm
