    My name is John Whiteman, which has for the last eighty or so years, been pronounce "Whitman".

    This is crap.

    I went to the Vanguard Coffee Shop in Westport in Kansas City, Missouri when I was a kid and heard Brewer and Shipley publicly perform this song for the first time ever.

    The name "Whiteman" has been pronounced "Whitman" because a Great Uncle chose to deny his heritage.

    John White Man.
