There's another song titled "The Borning Day," by Fran Minkoff and Fred Hellerman, published by Kohaw Music and Appleseed Music. It has been recorded by Fred Hellerman and Francis Minkoff, Harry Belafonte, and The Brothers Four.

We know Fred Hellerman from The Weavers. Hellerman co-wrote a number of songs with Minkoff. We have a thread on Minkoff here (click).
