Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: Early (Greg Brown)
Subject: RE: Ain't the mornin' light pretty?while the dew
The song was written about the town of Early, Iowa. Greg Brown's version is definitely worth a listen~~sound sample at Music Boulevard: 00a09.ra

. . . BUT, if you can find it by Robin and Linda Williams, THAT is the version to listen to! It was on their 1979 June Appal recording, Dixie Highway Sign.

I have tried several times to send this, but it would not go (luckily I had saved it to Word) so now I can add for Joe that Iowa Waltz is on Brown's Iowa Waltz album. Sound sample at Tunes:
