I ran across Vector air springs when I did a search, but it doesn't line up.

The couple of bent bracketed passages you have all sound right to me as you heard them, Chris.  I didn't hear anything that seemed like it required a change.
All best,

I re-listened, Chris, and you are spot on, phonetically, with "air vector"--and he pronounces it exactly the same both times.  I'm going to make the change and assume that it refers to some bygone advertising b.s.!  Thanks!
All best,

I think you're right that it's more likely to be something like that than its own brand name; it has that "flavor" for lack of a better word!

Thanks for the suggestion, Chris.  I thought "alabaster springs" sounded simultaneously poetic and impossible!  I will re-listen, though it especially sounds like "alabaster" the first time Temple sings it.  Air-vector springs might be some bygone spurious "secret ingredient" like Shell gas used to have, with "platformate".  If it is a proprietary design feature of some mattress manufacturer it could be tougher to track down than a simple brand name.
All best,

John in "Skin and Bones" that "alabaster springs" sounds something like "air-vector springs" to my ears. I suspect it's a brand name and I tried some searching but didn't come up with anything. Maybe someone else will either have better luck or know what the brand is.

Been listening to the George Mitchell Collection over the last couple days and keep coming back to John Lee Ziegler's "If I Lose, Let Me Lose" a truly beautiful performance.

I thought I'd have a stab at the lyrics, and there are a couple of places I'd appreciate some help; his diction is a bit unusual. I've indicated the places I'm having the most issue with with brackets. The first word of the piece should be "Ducks" but he comes in a little late, so I didn't include that.

... in the millpond, birds flying over,
Tell them [fool] gals, I'm comin' over,
Step back black gal, you can't shout,
I've got a yellow gal, to [beat your time],
Oh lose my money, let me lose,
If I lose my money, let me lose.

Lose my money, let me lose,
Lose my money, let me lose,
Lose my money, let me lose, let me lose,
If I lose my money, oh lose.

Up to the courthouse, back to the jail,
Look mighty cloudy but it ain't gonna hail,
If I lose my money, let me lose,
If I lose my money, let me lose.

Lose your money, don't you lose your mind,
Lose your woman, don't you mess with mine,
If I lose my money, let me lose,
If I lose my money, let me lose.

[Old] Dirty Red said, before he died,
One more road, I just got to ride
If I lose my money, let me lose,
If I lose my money, let me lose.

Ducks in the millpond, and geese is flyin' over,
Sally in the bed, and she couldn't turn over,
If I lose ... money, let me lose,
If I lose my money, let me lose.

Goin' up Cripple Creek, coming down Main,
Look mighty cloudy but it ain't gonna rain,
If I lose my money, let me lose,
If I lose my money, let me lose.

Chris
