Season Two - Ep 2 | Bootlegging: Bob Dylan's Salvation Goes Up on Trial

There is no "New Danville Girl," and hence to "Brownsville Girl," without heading back to the well from which traditional songs are pulled. Here's Dock Boggs, one of the great folk influencers. Meet "Danville Girl."

Woody Guthrie offered a version of "Danville Girl" as well. Maybe Bob Dylan and Sam Shepherd were thinking of this one when "New Danville Girl" started to take shape.

Jeff Lang and Bob Brozman bring home yet another version of "Danville Girl."

That girl from Danville, wherever and however, traveling on to wherever Danville girls need to go.
