Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 2
Hi,

I've started 56. Dives and Lazarus and need the text to a version collected by Sharp in EFSSA titled "Lazarus" Sung by Mr. & Mrs. Gabriel Coats. There's another version by Mrs. Laura Beckett.   

Need the version from G. P. Jackson, Down East Spirituals. I'm especially interested in the shape-note connection.

I'm missing most the the US version- the ones collected by Gainer, Kirkland and Flanders I don't have.

Anyone?

Richie
