Hi Johnm,

This is great that you are adding all these YT vids for the many lyric threads.

I think the example of So Lonesome, the first song transcribed, is a really clean version and possibly the original transcription was done with the less clean version I am used to. Listening to this one I think the last line of the 3rd verse is:

Said "stay home, brother, please don't stray away"

I also think you should relisten to the various places you have transcribed "Lord" as only the one at the beginning of the second verse seems like a possibility to me and the others seem more like "man" or "and" or just "aaah".

Thanks for the suggestion, Wax, I will re-listen as you suggest. 

I'm glad you like the idea of adding performance links to the lyric threads.  I've realized for some time that the threads are of considerably less interest and value without the performance links in there.  Just reading the lyrics without being able to hear them sung is a very distant second best to being able to read and hear them sung together in real time.  I'm trying to add performance links to all of the threads I can find them for, not just the multiple page threads of better-known artists.  There is so much more up on youtube than there was when this site started that I've been able to find some really obscure stuff that I'm sure would not have been available on youtube when many of the threads were originally posted.
All best,
Johnm
