'Nother song was "Lawyer Clark." Yeah. A lawyer in Brownsville, Huey Clark. Best lawyer they said, keep ya out of jail. He'd book John out of jail a lot of times, 'cause John get drunk every holiday and go to jail. They wouldn't make him pay nothin'. Let him out when he get sober. - Yank Rachell, from Blues Mandolin Man, by Richard Congress

Thanks for the good words, guys.  It has been a lot of fun and I've learned a lot.  I have no idea of how much people are using Weeniepedia, but there is really a lot of information in there at this point, and not just lyrics.
All best,
Johnm

That's probably one of the eternal laments of all archivists. It's hard yakka (kiwi expression, I have no idea how it originated but always liked the sound of it) accomplishing the task of collecting and making available historical material to the world without getting day to day feedback. Strangely that makes it all the more worthwhile. So just go for it, I reckon. If you need any help just holler.

I transcribed Bo Carter's "Old Devil" a while back but it's not on weeniepedia. Is there a criteria for the songs that are listed? How does this work?
