    Be gentle, this is my first attempt at this. I tried to give you some missing parts, and a few corrections, but may have replaced your text by mistake, sorry, if so. And please tell me how to do it, I'd like to "fix" "New Jump Steady Ball".
    (great lyrics!)
    Meaning? The song s pretty straight forward, but does need to be written in the vernacular, so maybe not written "correctly", folk music isn't written correctly.

    Feelings? It's fun to re-enjoy those warm late summer nights working with Vic, Dick Glass and the Ritchie Havens Trio on stage at the 'Why Not" in '62. Ritchie's version of "Stormy Weather" was (of course) like no other, and I hope somewhere there's a recording of it. One night-morning about 4am, he said "For my last number I'm going to do a request that hasn't been made, but I know she's thinking about it", and he played "Stormy Weather" for me.

    This one pretty much says just what it means. I know you didn't ask for corrections, but it was missing so much in that version. Those songs bring fond memories of working at the "Why Not", just out of the hospital after the wreck, had to elevate my still healing foot on the corner of the stage, listening to Vic Smith, Dick Glass and the Ritchie Havens Trio in the fall of '62. Hope you don't mind. This was my first time at this, so be gentle. As to writing correctly, some songs are in the vernacular, need "steppin", not "stepping", right? Ja.
