Pete M Lyr Req: She Was Only Seventeen (Marty Robbins) (52* d) RE: Trying to find this song 18 Mar 99


Hi BFleming, welcome aboard and thanks for replying to the posts above. I'm afraid that the song you are asking for is about 100 years too young for me to know it, but I'm sure that someone here will be avle to point you to a source. The International Lyric server used to be the place but I understand it has been shut down by the Vatican or someone.

In return would you be able to let us in on the details of how you found this thread? I've tried experimenting with various search engines but so far only found the Mudcat home page, and that usually given under a "Folk and Blues" heading (which is correct). As you may have gathered several ancient and generic threads have been resurrected recently and we are all puzzled as to how they have been found.

Threads: Messages to this discussion group are stored in a realtional database using a unique "thread" identifier as primary key. This has numerous advantages over the storage format used by "newsgroups"; including the ability to add to an existing thread but change the heading, view all posts to a given thread at once, fully invert the file to make them searchable by word, etc. etc. The term Thread refers to the effect of all messages being strung together. Hope that helps.

Pete M
