Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Talking Nothin' Blues
I remember a slightly different opening verse:

“I looked from the hall to the top of the stair,
Didn’t see nothing, nothing anywhere.
Nothing, nothing, nothing at all.
Nothing at all, all over the wall.
A predominance of vacancy...”

That was from about 1961 or ‘62, o group of my brothers friends
from Victoria University, New Zealand, folk club...
