Subject: RE: When I Leave the World Behind???

As I mentioned in our chat I found the song and will be snailmailing the printout to you asap. In the meantime, here is some info and the site at which I found it using the search function...the direct link is a mile long so I won't include that.

The site is from Duke University and has vintage stuff like Lester Levy's site (for anyone else who may be reading this)...
