Lass Of The Low Country


When I first began to sing in public I did the traditional thing and swapped songs with everyone I met and wrote them into my notebooks. A local singer with a beautiful voice sang The Lass Of The Low Country but wouldn’t swap her song because, she said, I didn’t sing anything she liked. However I saw her so often in the folk clubs I soon learnt it by heart. I guessed I’d paid for it by then. Later I bought The John Jacob Niles Songbook, which includes the song, so I suppose I’ve paid for it twice.
