She had this [barbecue pit] piled up full of hickory. She comes out with this two gallon can of gasoline & she up-ends this thing over the hickory... As she walks away from the pit she takes a kitchen match, strikes it on her butt, throws it over her shoulder, causes an explosion 30 feet into the air. Then she walked by and said: 'Be ready'n about an hour...' - Steve James, Port Townsend 97

I would transcribe it as
Here, and I stood at the station...

From the way Carr hesitates a bit, I would guess that he misspoke here, starting to sing the third verse, which basically starts with "Hear," realizes his mistake and goes on. Probably should have been "Went and I stood at the station."

Hi Pan,
I think in those two verses it should be disgusted rather than disgusting, though he's very nasal on that last syllable and I could be wrong.  If he describes himself as disgusting, he's saying he makes other people sick, if he's disgusted, he's been made sick himself, if that makes any sense.
All best,
Johnm

Was just about to post the same thing, Johnm, 'til I turned the page and you'd beat me to it.

Thanks Johnm, and Waxwing.  I was wondering about that too. I'll make the change.
