Thread Name: ADD: I Remember Loving You(from Priscilla Herdman)
Subject: I remember loving you Utah P Priscilla Herdman
It's an odd coincidence that a thread about the Herdman/Phillips duet on this song should happen to pop up among the recently added threads at Mudcat.   I did this duet with another Portland guitarist and singer, Mike Sands, at Artichoke Music's "Acoustic Village" open mic last night ("Duet night"), and I'd had to learn Priscilla's part in just a few days.

I made a few slight lyric modifications that made the lyrics seem to scan better for me and/or to make the underlying story make more sense (to me), but it was basically the same.

I sang,
"And the whispers of the people in the town when they'd see you passing through ..."

"The few hours we shared when you said you cared
And you'd come again ... "
"When the norther blows and there alone in my bed
And I can't sleep for thoughts of you ... "

We also reversed the parts, with Mike singing the original verses first, then me singing Priscilla's part.

It is uncanny that this song should happen to pop up here at Mudcat just a couple weeks ago.
