Thread Name: Lyr Req: Songs by Bruce 'Utah' Phillips
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Songs by Bruce 'Utah' Phillips
Somehow, our publisher Hal Leonard got 1975 for the publication date of the song, "Singing Through the Hard Times," and that's the date in our Rise Again Songbook. A friend from Nevada City (California) thinks the song is more recent. He remembers Utah saying it was a brand-new song he wrote for the homeless shelter in Nevada City. I found a performance of the song by Utah on a 2003 episode of Prairie Home Companion. Does anyone have access to anything that would give firm information about the publication date?
