Sure, wingfoot - Just click on the Create a New thread link and select "Lyric ADD," and post away. If you are submitting several songs, you may want to put them all in the same thread, one song per message, with the message title changed to ADD: and the name of the song.
You're welcome to post all lyrics at the Mudcat Cafe, but folk and blues are the preferred genres. The Digital Tradition reviews lyrics posted here and selects some for addition to the database. Preference is given to traditional songs that are not already in our database, and especially songs that have tunes submitted. You can e-mail tunes to me and I'll make sure they get to the right place.
Newly-written songs don't usually make it into the Digital Tradition, but all lyrics submitted to Mudcat are available to anybody who wants to use our search engines. Those newly-written songs may also be accepted for the Mudcat Songbook.
