Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Apple Pressing (Betty & the Baby Boom
Thanks for taking the time to write the lyrics out. There are two discrepancies I see in the transcription. They are really slight and they don't alter the meaning to greatly but here they are:
In the second stanza
The river's misty in the morn (is) The Lakes are misty in the morn.
In the fifth stanza
We'll pick them clean so they stand straight (is) We'll pick them clean to make them strait
And in the last stanza:
And when bees and men have drunk their fill
( I recently sang this with her and she wanted it changed to)
And when bees and all have drunk their fill
Their bandcamp is finished!
