Paul Clayton

Born March 3, 1933, in New Bedford, MA, Paul Clayton maintained a lifelong interest in the folk song tradition, particularly sea shanties and whaling songs, and was an avid collector of folk tunes. He first heard the old sea shanties from his grandfather, and by fiften years old he was singing them himself, along with other folk material he collected, on a series of radio shows. After earning a pair of degrees from the University of Virginia (where he studied with folklorist Arthur Kyle Davis, Jr.), he collected extensively in the Appalachians, and was instrumental in the first recordings of such traditional folk artists as Etta Baker and Hobart Smith. Clayton was a fixture in the Greenwich Village scene during the folk revival, and went on to record several albums of traditional material for the Folkways, Tradition, Riverside, Electra, Monument, and Stinson labels. The melody to his song "Who'll Buy You Ribbons When I'm Gone," in turn based on the traditional song "Scarlet Ribbons for Her Hair," provided Bob Dylan with the melody line for "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright," and led to a brief legal skirmish between the two singers in the mid-'60s, which was apparently settled amicably. Clayton died on March 30, 1967, reportedly by taking an electric appliance into his bathtub, thus ending a life, although beset by drug use and depression, that was full of the joy of songs and singing. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi

"Scarlett Ribbons for her Hair" was actually in the public domain so a financial settlement was highly unlikely.
