DT Lyrics:





Subject: Lyr Add: It's a pleasure to know you
From: Alan.Ackerman

The last line of IT'S A PLEASURE TO KNOW YOU (Carl Williams) is given as:

But friends's the diamond, and trouble's the diamond mine.

This is obviously a typo for:

But friendship's the diamond, and trouble's the diamond mine.

Also, the author's name is Karl, not Carl. See http://www.karlwilliams.com/end_of_time_lyrics.htm for the author's lyrics.

From the CD "LIVING AT THE END OF TIME" by Karl Williams. Also sung (recorded?) by Faith Petric.

Thanks, Alan. You're obviously referring to the copy of IT'S A PLEASURE TO KNOW YOU in the Digital Tradition database. A good place to post corrections of this sort is the thread Attribution added: DT authors PermaThread - that's what the thread was set up for. (I've bookmarked that thread and have posted several corrections/additions to it myself.)

I've already copied your information into that thread. Thanks again.

For the record, here are the lyrics from the Website of the songwriter, Karl Williams, http://www.karlwilliams.com. Except for that one word "friendship's", I think our transcription is easier to read, since it has punctuation. It would be nice it we were right on the spelling of the songwriter's name, and on how to contact him for recording rights.

IT'S A PLEASURE TO KNOW YOU
(Karl Williams)

It's a pleasure to know you
And the comfort you bring...

I came to your city after I left my home
And I was a stranger dressed up in stranger's clothes
Favors I needed but charity's out of style
And rare as the beauty in the face of a trusting child

Chorus: And it's a pleasure to know you
A pleasure to see you smile
A comfort to know
We'll share the road awhile
Pleasure is fleeting
Comforts are far between
It's a pleasure to know you
And the comfort you bring

They say life's a journey a highway from birth to death
Mapped in despair and traveled in hopelessness
Well they may believe it but just between you and me
The trick to the traveling is all in the company

Chorus

Lovers may leave you lovers may turn away
And children may scorn you you know they will someday
The seasons are fickle and fate is not known as kind
But friendship's a diamond and trouble's the diamond mine

Chorus

It would be great if we could get the correction made on DigiTrad - I went there first off and gave someone the wrong information. I'm glad that I checked this thread.

~b.w.
