Here's one good reason NOT to intersperse chords on the same line with lyrics. It screws up the search function. For example, consider the song LET'S TALK DIRTY IN HAWAIIAN by John Prine, which is in DigiTrad. (It just happened to be the first song I found with embedded chords.) The chorus contains the line

"What the hecka mooka mooka (G) dear"

If you search DigiTrad for "mooka mooka dear" you WON'T FIND IT.
