~ Odetta ~

Odetta Gordon passed on yesterday.

A strong and beautiful voice has left this earth.

I was introduced to Odetta through my favorite artist, Nanci Griffith, to whom she was a hero.

Tributes are sure to abound.

The river is wide, I can't get o'er
Nor do I have like wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two,
And both shall cross my love and I
