Tom Dooley

I just posted a new song to Elijah Wilbury's EZFolk Page. Its my rendition of the old Folk Song "Tom Dooley". The song is based on the real life murder of Lorie Foster in 1866. Civil War veteran Tom Dula was hanged for the crime in 1868.

More information about the development of the song and the story behind it can be found at Tom


The background image on this page is a Hebrew translation of the verse from Bob Dylan's song  It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding), from which the title of this blog is taken. Translation courtesy of Yoram Aharon of Hod-HaSharon's page--found via YudelLine-- which has many Dylan lyrics in Hebrew.
