Thread Name: Lyr Req: Awake Ye Drowsy Sleepers (Ian & Sylvia)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Ian & Sylvia version of 'Drowsy Slee
The transcript shown above jibes with my memory, with one exception:

I think in the final stanza the line is,

"It will end my grief, it will end my sorrow"

For many folkies this Ian & Sylvia recording was their first introduction to wide-interval parallel harmony. The chill has never quite subsided!
