"...Oral tradition and oral lore is cultural material and tradition transmitted orally from one generation to another.The messages or testimony are verbally transmitted in speech or song and may take the form, for example, of folktales, sayings, ballads, songs, or chants. In this way, it is possible for a society to transmit oral history, oral literature, oral law and other knowledges across generations without a writing system." (from Wikipedia)

Talk about the oral tradition of poetry!

I just went in to my files, archives, and so on, to find a lyric post for "Under The Radar" for The Shadowville All-Stars (Brian Mallard, Jack Snipe, Eric M. Gunter, Rusty Wood & Gary Frankfurth) to study up on for the Hogbottom show, and to place chord tabs to... and find that I've never written down the actual words of the song as we perform it.

Sounds like when The Beatles travelled to India...

Oral Tradition exudes from the song TRUCK STOP WOMAN. Read the words everyone right now.
Thanks for the mention, that certainly does fit into the theory.

Just ran across this in rec.arts.poems so thanks again, man.

Maybe our paths will cross somewhere near Macon soon, working on another gig there.
