Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Drifting Too Far from the Shore
Didn't anybody other than me learn it from the Monroe Brothers? They recorded it in 1936 as a duet; the Stanley Brothers probably learned it from them.

Their version also includes their curious misreading of "perilous" in the first line which sounds like "peer-i-ous" . And they're both singing it.

   Heavenly Highway Hymns is a great book!
