Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Sheath and Knife
interesting note, Abby....Jean Redpath recorded "Sheath & Knife", and on the album notes she says something like: (paraphrased)"After hearing Helen Schneyer sing it, it took me several years to wrap my head around it and do it myself"....

I have heard Helen do it in person several times, and it was quite an experience.....when the singer takes you into a song like Helen could do, you may sing the song, or you may not...but you are changed.
