i tried searching for this to no avail - either on mudcat or via google

i heard a song introduced as "a Mance Lipscomb tune"
the lyrics go

Ashes in my dreams , I hear my doorbell ring (x2)
When I woke up this morning y'know i couldn't see a dogone thing

You don't love me like you say you do (x2)
You just spend all my money, make me feel a fool

Ashes etc

Hey now mama, what you gonna do now (x2)
Well you're gonna have to find yourself a new best friend somehow

Ashes etc

i was trying to identify the song but there's nothing with an obvious title in the Mance Lipscomb discography
http://www.wirz.de/music/lipscfrm.htm

does anyone recognise this song?
thanks
Stu

Mr Red's list of resources maybe set you thinking of places to look.

The British Library needs a precise title.
eg I was looking for a song called HOME and the Mudcat folks came up with "H. O. M. E." as the search term!

Best of luck.

Here, at the Internet Archive, is a bootleg (I think) recording of a performance by Justin Townes Earle in which he sings a song called (according to the track list) "Ashes in My Dreams" attributed to Mance Lipscomb. However, when he sings, it sounds like he might be saying: "I says, in my dreams, I hear my doorbell ring"--which actually makes more sense.

I can't confirm that the attribution to Mance Lipscomb is correct.
