Thread Name: Origin: Mercedes Benz (Janis Joplin)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Oh Lord won't you give me a Mercedes
As shown above, Janis is credited with coauthoring both the lyrics and the tune. The folk process seems to have kicked in after her album "Pearl" came out. Other recordings inlcude Taj Mahal, and I've found a live version by Mellisa Etheridge, but I don't know where it came from. None sound like the Midi.
