GUEST, Lyr Req: If it Wasn't for Dicky (Lead Belly) (11) If it weren't for Dickey 17 Aug 00

The forum has the song "Kisses Sweeter than Wine" and a reference to the tune being an Irish Lament for a dead cow sung by Leadbelly. But the lament is not on the Trad--just the usual song "Kisses Seeeter than Wine"! Does anyone know the lyrics for the Leadbelly version. He sings it on a Library of Congress CD put out by Rounder.

The album also includes "Governor Neff" and a slide guitar version of "C.C. Rider". When Leadbelly does anything on the guitar he does it well and his slide playing is no exception. It is clean and accurate!
