Who wrote this song? Where does it originally come from? I’m trying to track this down. I learned it from some people at the Wilderness Awareness School in Washington State.
i just found this…
check song 5… a civil rights tune ?! thats as far back as i can see… so curious. yeah i learnt it at WAS.
hmmMMMM! let me know if yall got more leads!
I looked into this a little while ago and to the best of my knowledge the original version of this song was written by “Banjo Joe” Crookston and first appeared on his 2004 album “Fall Down as the Rain.” I contacted him and he confirmed this. Neither the title nor lyrics show up in web searches, so I suspect this wasn’t actually a civil rights song, though I could be wrong.
