On a file sharing web site, I ran across a song, "Dark as a Dungeon," about coal mines -- attributed to GL. Does anyone have any additional information? Could this be from GL's Two Tones days or the Hoe Down show or am I way off? There are a few other songs listed as Lightfoot's that have some prefacing by another person: "Copper Kettle," "Calypso Baby," and "Children Go Where I Send Thee."

Isn't "Dark As A Dungeon" a Merle Travis song?

Could be Merle - the back of the album says N.Traverse - could be a misprint tho.
