Thread Name: Lyr Req: He Lived Alone in Town (B Sainte-Marie)
Subject: She lived alone in town...
When I was young I was madly in love with a slender brunette who among other qualifying talents, played slow simple chords on a nylon-string guitar and sang songs that sounded so sweet it woulda made Joan Collins ask Joan Baez...or sompn like that. Anyway, that was then; but one of the songs she sang has hung around in my mind for lo these forty odd (very odd) years, I would dearluy love to discover that one of you knew it all along!

The tune os modal, traveling from A minor ===>Em== >Am followed by the slightly unusual seuence of G== >D==>Em.

The words that I can remember seemed to go:

She lived alone in town
Her friends were many and true
She lived and took the easy love
Of street boys that she knew...

The song goes on to describe how the lass meets a youth and everything is different, but I really don't recall those lyrics.

Who's got a ringing bell out there??? Talk tah me, neighbors!!
