Subject: Lyr Req: 'Dossie Lee'
"Dossie Lee" is bluegrass song similar to "Wild Mountain Flowers for Mary". I learned the latter tune from an old fiddler at a jam session. He asked if he cound sing a tune but his fiddlin' was so good we kinda ignored him until it was about time to go. He then started singing the tune and I was mesmerized by his voice. His voice was as sonorous as his fiddle. I never saw that old man again and that was about 6 or 7 years ago. Gifted people like that (especially fiddlers!) should live forever. This life is enriched by meeting people such as him and if I could only see and hear his voice and fiddle again...
