Hi Bob

I'm sure your version from the book should be some sort of definitive version!

I just had another listen to the linked track (Martyn Joseph singing) and it's more or less as I had it, with a couple of notes wrong in the ante-penultimate bar.

X: 1
T:Judas And Mary
A:Sydney Carter
C:Sydney Carter
B,|E B B|B A G|G F E|E2
w:Said Ju-das to Ma-ry now what will you do
E/F/|G G G|A G A|B3|z2
w:With your oint-ment so rich and so rare
E|E B B|B A G|G F E|E2
w:I'll pour it all ov-er the feet of the Lord
E/F/|G G G|F E D|E2 D|B,3|z2
w:And I'll wipe it a-way with my hair, she said
E/F/|G G G|F G F|E3-|E2||
w:I will wipe it a-way with my hair_

So presumably he changed it a bit too.

By the looks of it Liz will have two photocopies as well as your transcription to work from - should be enough! (I only did it from the recording to give her some lead time on McGofH's letter).

Best wishes
