GUEST,Lynn Koch Lyr Req: The Farmer and the Shanty Boy (17) Lyr Req: Lyrics for The Farmer and the Shanty Boy 10 Feb 08


Hello Mudcatters:

I'm doing musical transcriptions for a trad music expansion of the website at tauny.org (Traditional Arts in Upstate New York). Some of my transcriptions are being done from archival field recordings, and it's difficult to hear some of the words. I'm working on "The Farmer and the Shantyboy" as recorded from the singing of Lily deLorme by Helen Hartness Flanders on August 29, 1944. I've check the local college library, and they don't have the book which might contain the song. Can anyone give me a hand here?

Many thanks.
