Seek Lyrics For "Mine", Ampico Roll 214681
By Mike Walter

Hi all, Happy New Year!  I am in the process of attaching lyrics to
a new copy of the Ampico roll of "Mine" 214681, by Gershwin.  After the
first Refrain there is a spot on the roll which appears to be begging
for lyrics.  The sheet music to which I have access does not show lyrics
in that spot, just the next refrain.

Does anyone have an original copy of this particular roll? If you do,
could you please check it to see if it does have lyrics after the First
Refrain, and if it does have lyrics, may I possibly trouble you to make
a note of what the words are, and send them to me so that I may attach
them to this roll and complete my project?

There is a possibility that Ampico decided to add this as an interlude,
since this roll does have 3 Refrains but no Verse, or maybe they just
wanted to mess with the minds of future Ampico owners who care about
lyrics.  Thanks very much!

Best wishes,
Mike Walter [delete ".geentroep" to reply]
