Loved the Dick Gaughan song, "What You Do With What You've Got" so I Googled the lyrics and chords. No site has any chords for this, but I did find three sites with the same words but claimed to be written by three different people!

Well-deserved inclusion of D.M. into the Hall of Fame, Mike.

German Folk Songs - I think part of the problem is the gradual erosion in thie use of Dialect which also accounts for the myth that germans have no sense of humour this is a complete untruth but it is 90% in dialect I have a book with Deutsche Volkslider words and music also much is watered down by the extreme popularity of Volkstumlich music much of which is Traditional material but it is closer to country music

Yes, I agree with that. Volkstumlich music is like birthday card verse set to music. Stuben music from Bavaria is much more like it, particularly when sung by the older generation. I mourn the erosion of local dialects here in England, the accent is still there but not dialect. A huge subject.
