4. I probably wrote it wrong, based on memory
But yeah, I think they do Hangman on the LZ DVD - they do an acoustic set there too

8. Old folk song
"Brother did you bring me silver, brother did you bring me gold..."

Many variations. Way back in the mid 1960's, I wrote a term paper on this theme.

9. John Jacob Niles
Folkways
"The Maid Freed From the Gallows"

Also covered by Peter Paul and Mary, I believe.

Niles was listed on the album cover as a "mountaineer tenor."
In reality, he kept sliding into falsetto.
