I heard this song once. It's sung to the tune of "John Henry" and is about a mail carrier ... well, you can probably guess the rest. :)
It went so fast when I heard it ... would love to know the lyrics.

Also, is it on the CD retrospective?

Thanks,
Teresa

That was a fun song. I could never aspire to learning all those alternating randomized letters and numbers, though -- you're very brave to take that on!

I have it on vinyl, but no way to play it to retrieve lyrics -- sorry.

I did find a link to a CD rerelease of the original album for you, though: Thanks to the Following. Hope that helps.

Claire

Why not ask Bob Bossin, contact info at http://www.island.net/~oldfolk/contact.htm.

The old Stringband records are out of print but I think Bob makes up copies on CD or CDR for special orders ...

That is the song in question and I'll have a shot at a transcription when next I get to this thread. They sing it fast, but the lyrics seem clear.
