I learned this from a recording of Jim Craig (who runs Hog Eye Music in Evanston IL).. but I was inspired to learn and to record it for this talented Canadian trio of fiddle players... including Kendel Carson
oh these lines though that the legendary Woody Guthrie wrote... this woman was probably kick ass beautiful like that trio in Canada.
Eight men they say combed that black waving hair
Eight men knew the feel of your dark velvet waist
Eight men heard the sounds of your tan leather skirt
Eight men heard the bark of the guns that you wore.
Belle Starr, Belle Starr, tell me where have you gone
Since old Oklahoma's sand hills you did roam?
Is it Heaven's wide streets that you're tying your reins
Or singlefooting somewhere below?
