Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Red is the Color of My True Love's H
Hey Folks, Give me a breaaaaaaaaaaaak!!!! LOL I must tell you that I didn't expect this fast action. I cut the 'puter off and was sitting on the bed playing my acoustic for my love, Katie, playing a bunch of the songs that I found the words for on this site. (Ahhh, what is that woodsy scent drifting above the incense??????) I have so many of you on this board to thank. You all are such nice folks, and so determined to help. Now, why did I think Bob Dylan did the song??? (Tune in next week for the startling answer!!!!!) Actually, during the sixties and seventies, I didn't play or care for folk music that much. I was playing bass in a traveling R&B and NC Beach Music Band. I started finger-picking this song a couple of nights ago and knew only the first verse, and I don't have any idea just where the $%*& I came up with the idea that Dylan did it. Don't know where the "Red" came from either!!!!! (LOL) HOWEVER, I will sing it with the first verse "Red" instead of "yellow" since my Katie has reddish hair and I'll also dedicate it to Metchosin. Thanks again and I hope to get to know all you folks personally. I'm in Eastern NC, Greenville to be exact...........Jim
