You'll probably find what you want on COWPIE , if not try BMI or ASCAP for copyright stuff.

Maybe it's too late to help Henki, but I'll use any excuse to add to our collection of lyrics.

Lyrics copied (the hard way) from Rhapsody.com:

SHARECROPPER'S SON
Ralph Stanley and Carter Stanley

1. We moved here from Sunhearst when I was fourteen.
Worked this poor ground for bacon and beans.
Landlord told me that hard times are near.
It didn't mean a thing 'cause they're already here.

CHORUS: Daylight till dark my work's never done.
The Lord have mercy on this sharecropper's son.

2. Mama's got the fever and the baby's sick too.
Papa's downtown just a-soakin' up that booze.
Just out of prison, says he ain't goin' back.
Ain't a bloodhound in Georgia that can follow his track.

3. We bought a new mule, brought him up from down south.
He'll kick the chew tobacco right out of your mouth.
Water in the well nearly out of sight
Can't take a bath on a Saturday night.

4. Our crops are all wilted, no rain day or night.
Preacher's here for dinner, we ain't got a bite.
Eleven in the family, ten daughters and a son.
Mama just told us there'll be another one.

[As sung by the Yonder Mountain String Band. Also recorded by Larry Sparks, by Ralph Stanley, and by The Waco Ramblers.

[SHOUTING ON THE HILLS OF GLORY was also written by Ralph Stanley and Carter Stanley. I'll look for lyrics later, and probably post them in a different thread.]
