Thread Name: Lyr Req: Mary Ellen Carter (Stan Rogers)
Subject: RE: Lyr.: Mary Ellen Carter??
It's great to help people with their enquiries, but let's not forget to tell them how we found the information that eluded them, so that next time they can do it for themselves, without having to start another unnecessary, and permanent, thread.  The best of several onsite search engines here is the "Digitrad and Forum Search" box on the main Forum page, which searches the Digital Tradition database and the Forum, oddly enough.  Type mary ellen carter into it and hit "GO".  That will find it.  At times, a search for a title won't get results because the song has been posted here under a different name, or a different spelling; it's usually a good idea to search also for phrases from the song.  The FAQ thread at the top of the Threads list on the main Forum page contains a lot of helpful information, though a lot of people don't consult it.
