Ring Games: Line Games and Play Party Songs of Alabama

"Miss Mary Mack" may once have been one of the most universally sung children’s songs in the United States, but many of the other wonderful tunes in this collection remained local. The ring songs, line games and party songs were recorded in rural Alabama before desegregation.
