Thread Name: Chord Req: Gaslight Rag (Dave Van Ronk)
Subject: RE: Chord Req: Gas Light Rag by Dave Van Ronk
I haven't listened to that album in years. The verse that sticks in my mind is:

I had a dream that the gaslight was clean
And all the rats scrubbed down,
The coffee was great and the waitresses straight
And Patrick Sky left town.
No one was swakked (not sure of the word there)
And Dylan played Bach
And Ochs' songs all scanned,
I got out of bed and cleared out my head
And started a Rock and roll band.

Good luck finding the rest of the lyrics....
