Subject: RE: Origins: Night Rider's Lament
Nanci Griffith recorded this song on her CD "Other Voices, Other Rooms" on Elektra, and she also printed the lyrics in the CD booklet. She gives the same credit as has been stated above: Words & Music by Michael Burton, Groper Music, BMI. The fine print in the back of the booklet says "all lyrics reprinted by permission," so somewhere along the road there *is* someone empowered to give permissions and licenses. Don't give up!
