Thread Name: Lyr Req: Early in the Mornin' (prison work song)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Prison Work Song
Thank you for the welcome AzizI!

Thank you, everyone! I've just added the lyrics above to my iTunes & polished up the playlists, which is also a small joyful "waste" of time! Oh, these small & large pleasures! ;o)

My local library has a limited collection of titles from the Alan Lomax collection. They have "Bad Man Ballads" but the other prison song collection is "lost." I just hope someone really has it & enjoys it! At any rate, I shall see if the liner notes are still attached. Perhaps . . . ;o)

Am slapping my forehead for thinking too much inside the lines re libraries. It had not dawned on me that my local library could request materials from New Zealand, Maryland, etc. I am in hopes that a library in the east (I live in the midwest) will send a rare copy of Elmer Bernstein's Film Music Collection which is a 12-CD collection of Bernstein conducting the original soundtrack arrangements from "Wuthering Heights," and other wonderful movies.

I shall check back later to see if Dr. Finn (?! ;o)) has shown up.

Have an already wonderful Sunday!
