Subject: RE: tune/lyric req: Poor Ned (you're better off dead)
G'day Joe,

It's really a matter of commitment: I was in the position of knowing ... and occasionally accompanying ... the song, so I was capable of transcribing it. However, it wasn't a song for which I had much empathy (apart from the exercise of pondering its labyrinthine evolution!) and I was hoping someone else would come across a neat set of published 'dots' - and post the requisite MIDI.

Then I had an opportunistic memory lapse ... and didn't really think about it for 3½ years! Chris, who does sing it, is one of several siblings who had their malleable young minds 'turned' by playing around the room where their Dad, myself and sundry other reprobates practiced for a band in which we all played ... back in the 1970s!

I guess I have to pay for my sins ... so the exercise of getting the tune into the Mudcat will also help the rest of my Monday Mob do a better job of backing Chris!
