technission Lyr Req: The Sky Above, the Mud Below (Tom Russell (25) RE: Lyr/Chords Req: 'The sky above and the mud be 03 Feb 02


Allll-righty! something a newcomer can illuminate, I'm holding the CD right here by Tom Russell, "Song of the West" , 1997 byHMG/HighTone records. (www.hightone.com) FYI this disc includes other gems you may have heard on alternative radio; Gallo Del Cielo, Claude Dallas, El Llano Estacado, Navajo Rug (written by Ian Tyson, didja know, not Jerry Jeff Walker as some think...)

If I ever found a Tom Russell site I didn't bookmark it. I found music and lyrics to some Russell tunes on Tabs Planet but didn't archive this particular song. Here's a URL (hey I'm new don't ask ME to create a blue clicky) you can copy to your browser to get right to Gallo Del Cielo which would put you in the hood:

If you can't turn up the lyrics to TSA,TMB bribe me on PM and maybe I would input them to you off the liner notes... And here's URL to Internet Cowboy, an Ian Tyson site with info on him + other Canadian "cowboy" musicians - I didn't even know of this acknowledged genre until a bit over a year ago, and was surprised how many Tyson songs have been made (more?) popular by artists covering them... say la vee, nyet?
