Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Let Her Sleep Under the Bar / Lady in Red
Thanks for the lyrics and discussion. It was bugging me cause I had forgotten them.
I learned the song in 1952 while tending bar part-time at the officers club in Suwon Korea. The pilots who flew missions during the day would get pie-eyed every night and ultimately end the night singing the song. Boy, did they sing loud.
