    1. I thought that I did a good job with the organization into the Easy, Intermediate and Difficult categories for theses songs but maybe this only made sense to me, Different lyrics become different triggers for different people and you were looking for “Cow is giving kerosene” for Touch of Grey which is a line that probably would never appear in another song, but since I always associate this song with getting old or aging, I used “try to keep a little grace”. In the past many rural areas did not have access to power grids, so farmers used cow dung as fuel.

      1. What makes it worse on Touch of Grey is we covered that and guess who learned all the words? I’m pissed at myself that I didn’t get that one.
