Thread Name: Origins: Willie Moore
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Willie Moore:Doc Watson Version
kytrad - while I've usually heard the line sung as raven black was her hair (the DT version has that, and that's what I was expecting when I took it down), Doc Watson certainly sings wavy on the Folk City recording (I've just rechecked my transcription). That also seems to be in agreement with the version from his stated source, Burnett and Rutherford, quoted above by Masato.

Of course that was released in 1963 and he may well have changed the version later.
