Thread Name: Lyr Req: Brown's Ferry Blues
Subject: RE: Brown's ferry blues
Doc does a slightly different version on "Doc Watson on Stage," most of the differences a word, but one complete line: "He walks around in second-hand clothes" instead of "Hard luck poppa countin' his toes" before the line "You can smell his feet wherever he goes."

Word differences: "Revenue agent" instead of "Revenue man," and ..."my girl's old man" instead of "...the girl's old man": it makes a bit more sense, since this is the first mention of her in the song.
