Art Thieme Lyr Req: Web of Birdsong (Bob Coltman) (43) RE: REQ: Bob Coltman Song 18 Oct 98

It's called "WEB OF BIRDSONG"

If you will weave me a web of birdsong
From the thrush or the linnet,
I will give you my heart and hand
And all the love there's in it,
If you...

That's asll I remember! It's arounbd here on cassettes somewhere--as sung by Dodi Kallick (mom of Cathy Kallick of the GOOD OLD PERSONS). She sang it around Chicago in the 50's and 60's.

It was only recorded by one person that I know of. Janet Smith (sister of Mayne Smith) on an Arhoolie LP called something like __OUT WEST__---a sampler of singers that hung out in Berkeley back in the 60's. A fine guitarist named Perry Letterman had his only few recordings on this album too. Janet Smith had a later solo LP but these songs were ALL GREAT ones. "The Unicorn" and a great version of "Lady Gay"-------The first time I ever got a crush on a gal because of her fingerpicking! But that's all the songs she had on the LP.
