Everybody singin' like somebody else's body. And that's pretty spooky if you think about it. I like the shows where the guy... he's like 18 years and white and he's comin' up on stage before a 90 years old bluesman [pantomimes lurching onto stage, plays really old sounding blues, wails incomprehensibly]... And then the 90 years old bluesman comes on and says, 'OK man, whassup?' Everythin's gotten like kinda spaced if you think about it... - Jerry Ricks, Port Townsend 97

Big ups to KC King who added a new Henry Thomas lyric, complete with indexing to the right categories, in one hit, and no edits. I'd be hard pressed to do that even though I've been futzing with it for 6 weeks!  :D

KC you are The Man! And good work Andrew on the How To lyrics article, everybody wishing to contribute please read!

Hey guys, I'm a little confused  :D Could I, for instance, begin uploading Blind Lemon lyrics we worked out on the forum? I'm assuming that's the whole idea right?

Hi Cheapfeet,

Yep. We do have 13 lyrics listed now in weeniepedia for BLJ, - so if there are more that have not been posted and seem to have been worked through -- by all means give it a shot.  Thanks!

Cheapfeet - that's exactly the idea.

The only thing we ask is that you bring the lyrics up-to-date with any corrections/suggestions that were made by members that sound right. Something I still haven't got to for Blind Lemon transcriptions I did. There's a lot of Lemon to go through!

I added a section to the user guide on how to use the notes feature, and a link to it from the how to enter lyrics page.
