Thread Name: Lyr Req: Woody Guthrie songs
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Woody Guthrie songs
To explain my request...Earlier in the day Mudcat was down completely. Later I spent about 2 hours trying to find lyrics on the Digital Tradition archives. For unknown reasons this simple task which usually provides such valued and meaningful results was not working. It was important to find these lyrics today. Many of my friends who are ardent Guthrie fans are away. Also there are people like myself who are beginners at computer searches & computers in general. Thank you Philippa for 2nd site which I was able to bring up. This was helpful now & for future research. I was looking for songs essentially associated with Woody Guthrie for an upcoming concert. As I'm learning, and I'm sure you all know, Woody has not always written the lyrics or he sings his own lyrics to traditional tunes. I do now have all the information I need at this time. I sincerely apologize if I apparently overly "depended on the kindness" of members. Again thanks for your time & all the leads to additional info. And thanks to volunteers & Mudcat for being there almost all the time.
