GUEST,Gern Lyr/Chords Req: Drifting Too Far from the Shore (37) RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Drifting Too Far From Shore 16 Mar 03

I want to point out that Dylan's "Drifting Too Far From Shore" is not a version of this traditional gospel song. It is a totally different set of lyrics and tune, bearing even less resemblance to the original than some of his traditional makeovers. However long it may "last" is a matter of conjecture, but Charles Moody's beautiful song has a 60-year head start. I would refer interested listeners to the Stanley Brothers' version instead.
