I am looking for the LYRICS to the song Who Back Back - NOT THE LEADBELLY SONG THOUGH
I am looking for the song sung by the Volo Bogtrotters on their album a few years back

It's on the 1996 CD "The Appalachian String Band Music Festival, Clifftop, West Virginia". I don't have this one, but maybe somebody does and you can get the words from the recording.

I think all these are versions of the Leadbelly song, except what Carl posted. Hope you can find that one.

Sounds like a version of (or inspired by) "Other Side of Jordan."
