GUEST,DWR Lyr Req: Corrugated Lady (Red Clay Ramblers) (15) RE: Lyr Req: Corrugated Lady 25 Mar 10


Great job, Stewie. I don't think I could have gone through it nearly so fast without your big kick start. I haven't heard back from the guys I sent this to, but here's what I came up with.

I saw very little difference. The last line is almost certainly Than a fickle-minded real live gal. (Though it could be girl)

One minor thing I heard differently. In the next to last line, I heard "a" paper doll rather than "this" paper doll.

I remember Paper Doll mostly from the Mills Brothers, but a bunch of people recorded it, just not quite like the RCR, but then who IS like the RCR?

The only other place that I couldn't catch was where you have Southern Spain to Nova Scotia I heard, variously
Caught a plane, Saw this plane, On a plain but finally settled on Saw this plane in Nova Scotia. I'm not the least bit sure about that line.

None of those choices make a lick of sense, but what is there about the song that does, other than it's a lot of fun? If I hear back from Joe, Gene or Arkie with something that comes closer to what our ears are supposed to be hearing, I'll pass it on. They may yet show up here as well.

Twisted Laurel was and is one of my very favorite albums, top ten or twenty for sure. I'm sure I'm going to have Corrugated Lady, The Ace, The Telephone Girl, etc. swimming through my head for weeks.

Lots of fun as usual, Stewie, thanks for bringing this up.
