You're very welcome, Miguel. Many thanks too, to Bob Maglinte who verified
I neglected to add to the previous post that one of the reasons I think
you had such difficulty tracking down the lyrics in print form was that
wherever I looked there seemed to be a very strict copyright on most of Mr.

Anyone who wants to record this particular song (or have themselves
recorded playing it - which would probably include video and audio recordings?)
would need to contact the Harry Fox Agency which has been mentioned several
times recently here as the holder of most song copyrights.
I gave you the lyrics primarily because I so dislike the butchering of not

responsibility of making sure you dot all the i's and cross all the t's rests
with you and anyone else here who now thinks it'd be cool to add the song to
Fair warning. ;)

instead of "knee length"... I imagined a shorter mini-skirt, lol
Thanks a lot for your help!!

Here they are as best as I can decipher.

I kinda waited to chime in on this, as I actually played with Jimmy Rogers
on the road, and Elizabeth has those lyrics correct. It was always one of
my favorite tunes of his. She just beat me to the punch in filling in the
