Thread Name: Lyr Req: american version of Two Sisters
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: american version of Two Sisters
I've been bemused by this song since I heard the Red Clay Ramblers do it in the seventies. I occasionally do it still, usually after 2 AM around a campfire with the attendant firewater. Sometimes I even recall some of the naughty verses Filthy Fred and I made up long ago. Use your imagination, and substitute "brothers" if you're offended by possibly sexist attitudes. It IS just an old folk song.....The scholarly references provided above in this thread are appreciated.
