Thread Name: Lyr Req: Fare Thee Well? / Farewell (Bob Dylan)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Dylan's 'Fare Thee Well'
Hey, the old brain cells can still do it, eh? Except for "The weather is against me and the wind blows hard".
For some inexplicable reason, this song is in the DT as "Leaving Liverpool, new version". I had the devil of a time trying to find it. The original is not listed as "Leaving of Liverpool" but "Leaving Liverpool", so when I entered "Leaving of Liverpool" into the search box, nothing came up. When Dick and Susan and whoelseever continue their monumental and thankless task of updating and correcting the DT, this one should be given the correct title, "Farewell". And I think Max said the search engine was going to be improved to do "fuzzy" searches, which will help too.
Not that I'm complaining!....I'm amazed at how comprehensive that collection is and how well the SuperSearch generally works.
