Thread Name: Lyr Req: Somebody's Waiting for Me (Sterling/Von T
Subject: RE: There's A Light Shining Bright
It resally IS called There's Somebody Waiting for Me and the first recording of it was by Ernest Stoneman of Galax VA, probably about 1928. I had the privilege last summer of hearing two of his children singing it at the Mtn Laurel Autoharp Festival. They seemed really happy that people remembered Pop Stoneman and his songs. The words you have look good to me-- will re-check with friends as i am a little hazy on the verses.
