JoanieReb & SusanSweet,

"The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" was originally recorded by Joan Baez. I don't recall offhand if she wrote it herself;  if not, I think it might have been Tim Hardin (also known for "if I were a carpenter/and you were a Lady....). I've got the sheet music for it somewhere in the Swamp Archieves, aka the basement. Both versions are good, but I think I prefer The Band's. Those boys could rock it!

My personal fav CW song is Johnny Cash's version of "Johnny Reb." "Bad Company" by Bad Company seems CWish , too. Very Western Theater/Josey Wales/guerrilaish, to this boy at least.
