No idea when this question was posted, but "You'll be wearing yellow chiffon and gardenias," etc., comes from the song "Southern Lady," by Mike Finnigan's self-titled album. And near as I can tell, can't be found ANYWHERE, unfortunately. GREAT SONG!

I actively search out want lists of rare, hard-to-find & out-of- print Lps & CDs, antiques and collectables items, books, lyrics, sheet music and any other audio/visual media & format as well, for individuals, traders, retail outlets and online auctions. My specialty is 60`s (psych & garage rock, doo-wop, girls groups, etc.) & 70`s (hard, punk, progressive, etc.), although I have acquired a large range of knowledge in the 80`s and on any other style & period as well. As a researcher in musical subjects, I have received requests to write programme notes for modern & classical music, history of music, forms, contemporary music life, bibliographic references, among other topics.
