‘Way Out In California . . .’

Post-Christmas busyness is taking over my schedule this Boxing Day, but come tomorrow, I’m going to dig a little into the history of a song that began as an English folk song, stopped off as a work song/chant and eventually morphed into a couple different things.

Here, from what I know, is how “Stewball” sounded as a work chant, as performed in 1940 by Lead Belly and the Golden Gate Jubilee Quartet.
