Folk songs are about folks and their lives.

Wasn’t shown that Carter was actually guilty, which is why Dylan doesn’t preform the song anymore?

So you are saying this is not a folk song? Maybe you do not understand the concept.

glad we cleared that up. Not all folk songs are 100% true. Except 'John Henry' , of course.

As far as Folk music goes, nothing and I mean nothing, for me beats the extraordinary talent and storytelling of Stan Rogers.

He tragically died in a plane accident, but to anyone who’s ever heard his music, you can’t help but be touched by it.

Now that I have been reminded of folk music being about 'folks' and their life experiences, I'm thinking of composing a catchy, upbeat tune that describes the last weeks of the Heaven's Gate members!
