Thread Name: Songs of Nanci Griffith
Subject: RE: Songs of Nanci Griffith
I've combined a couple of threads with lyrics for songs by Nanci Griffith. In general, it's best not to start a single thread for posting a single song by a single songwriter - unless you want to actually discuss the song or ask for corrections. And in general, it would be very helpful if you could listen to a song and make corrections, instead of just copy-pasting lyrics from a lyrics site. And as Jeri says, performer Websites often contain incorrect lyrics. When I was working on the Rise Again Songbook, I found that songwriters sometimes sent incorrect lyrics even when we were paying them for the songs and asking them to send us their version of the lyrics - grammar and spelling, sloppy format, words that didn't make sense, etc.
I see that Nanci Griffith's Website has disappeared, so it might be a good idea to use this thread for corrected lyrics, or for links to collections on uncorrected songs.
Here's a link to tablature for several Nanci Griffith songs.
