Thread Name: Tune Req: Larimer Street (Utah Phillips)
Subject: Tune Req: They're Running the Bums Out of Town
While digging through some stuff from "long ago", crammed in a forgotten folder, I came across a song penciled on ruled theme paper.

The title is: "They're Runing The Bums Out of Town". It is a Utah Phillips song, in C and in 3/4 time (according to a note in the margin, there is no music). I sorta remember hearing this sung by Utah at a house concert at 885 Clayton (in San Francisco) but I can't remember the song's tune and I didn't find it at his website. I don't know if he wrote it down or if it was written down for me by Faith Petric.

If anyone knows the tune I'd sure like to learn it. My sister lives in Nevada City and I asked her to seek U.P. out and ask him about it but she feels too shy to do so.

Thanks in advance
