Thread Name: Lyr Add: In the Pines (Joan Baez/Leadbelly?)
Subject: RE: In the Pines
Dear Barry, Many thanks. I had no idea that was where the song came from. Wasn't there a miner's strike over bringing in black convicts as scabs sometime in the late 1800's? I vaguely remember a song attached to the event. Yours, Peter
