Babe It Ain’t No Lie was written by Elizabeth Cotten, the female African American finger-picking phenomenon, when she was 11 years old (the same age as Uma!). Elizabeth’s neighbor told Elizabeth’s mom a lie about her, and she was then punished for something she didn’t do. She wrote this song that her neighbor then heard and said “Oh that’s a nice song.” Elizabeth simply said thank you and didn’t tell her that it was about her.(Elizabeth Cotten, 2000, Retrieved May 12, 2019) www.satisfied-mind.com/lessons/elizabeth-cotten.htm
