FOUR WHITE HORSES ON A RAINBOW
Greetings All: My name is Karen Ellis. I published a book and cassette titled Domino in 1991 of live sound field recordings; children's songs and chants from the United States Virgin Islands which were collected in 1976 - 1979. It is no longer in print, but plan to publish online. K12PlayGround.com This is where teachers have gotten Four White Horses from. Contact me if you want more info. The original words are much sexier :-)
