Notes: This song has morphed into many different versions throughout the years. John McEuen first composed it in the 1960s as 'Dismal Swamp'. It later got some new life breathed into it when he rearranged it in the late-1970s and recorded it as 'White Russia' on the self-titled album 'The Dirt Band'. Later still it resurfaced once more in what we know today as 'Return to Dismal Swamp'. In my tab I've incorporated all the known versions of this song into one arrangement. It's a great banjo tune from the mind of John McEuen and it's worthy of your interest.
