Subject: Lyr Add: THEY'LL KNOW WHO I AM (Mayne Smith)
From: open mike
Date: 11 Apr 10 - 08:04 AM

My friend sings this song and wonders who wrote it:
(and what the title is? "they'll sure know who i am??"
or I'd rather starve at singing? sitting at the end of the bar?)

Well I'm sitting at the end of the bar, boys
Just about to start the show
I've travelled many a mile
Got many more miles to go
Well, it's hard to make a living
But it's better than grubbing dirt
I'd rather starve at singing
Than to do some job of work

        CHORUS
So I'm gonna make it a good one, boys
Gonna make it mean and sad
Gonna talk about the hippies
And the honky tonk chippies
And the hard luck times I've had
And when that show is over
That crowd will understand
Well they may not like my style
But they'll sure know who I am

Well I'm travelling thru this country
With my flat top box guitar
Singing my joys and sorrows
And smoking cheap cigars
Listen to me ladies
If you're looking for a friend
You better take your chance tonite
I might not come back again

        Chorus
They my not like my style
But they'll sure know who I am

No, Mayne Smith wrote it in 1969. Rosalie recorded it.
I can't seem to make these blue linkies, but cut and paste this link to see Mayne Smith's account.

Oh this makes sense! I saw him accompany Rosalie when she performed at the Freight and Salvage in Berkeley a few years back...he played Dobro.

Mayne Smith website

Mayne has performed with longtime musical compadre, Mitch Greenhill since 1969.

thanks for knowing this and sharing this!
