Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Fox on the Run (Tony Hazzard)
It's "Paradise Hall." Don't know why, it just is. I always assumed it was a similar place to the "House of the Rising Sun," only in Kentucky instead of New Orleans. So it's "A woman tempted me down in Paradise Hall." and "I see a string of girls that have put me on the floor." BtW, Tom T. Hall did a definitive version on his "The Magnificent Music Machine" album. On it he has guest artists like J. D. Crowe and Bill Monroe and I'll bet if he was singing it wrong, they'd have set him straight. If the words don't make sense to you, just chalk it up to "Wildwood Flower" syndrome.
