Subject: RE: Lyr Add: In the Pines (Joan Baez/Leadbelly?)
Great version by Leadbelly, but the consensus seems to be the song predates him - like most around that time (Carter Family!) they were singing songs they already knew and claiming them for their own. Heard Sarah McQuaid do a haunting version of this recently.
