Don't worry too much about format, Gaiamuse. It's nice to have things in proper Digital Tradition Format, but I standardize formatting when I review lyrics and correct spelling and such. The official format has ADD and the song title (in Title Case) in the "Subject" box of the message, and the text box with title in ALLCAPS, songwriter name in parentheses on the next line, and notes and source information after the lyrics.
When we have a documented original source like what we have in Jim Dixon's post, I often don't bother formatting the other posts. Still, it's worthwhile to have other versions if they're versions that people actually sing.
