Thread Name: Lyr Req: Rainbow Mid Life's Willows (Almeda Riddle
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: rainbow mid the willow
ain't it? thanks for transcribing it. i used to have a record
of almeda, but its gone to scratches and skips. all i had
left for ages was the melody and the image of the stalwart
brothers, which stuck in my head in childhood. it always seemed
to me that robin williamson lifted lines ( or at least ideas)
from "locks and bolts" for his "by weary well"
my curses on the carpenter
who built the door so strong
that she and me might parted be
and parted be for long...
it's possible the former influenced the latter in any case.
