I think it's unneccessary and misleading to lump 'Pass It On' with 'Straight Ahead' as it is a previous song with almost entirely different lyrics, the music, of course was used fror Straight Ahead, but that doesn't make it the same song.
I think the same should apply to this song it was clearly not titled 'Somewhere' at this point, it has entirely different lyrics and even the music is not entirely the same. I suggest it should be titled "Cold Stormy Night" [or some such?] from the lyrics as many of JH's untitled lyrics etc. are given names - to avoid unnecessary confusion. What say you?
“COLD STORMY NIGHT” [untitled, music later developed into ‘Somwhere’]
A long time ago-o
One cold stormy night
I was layin’ down in my bed around [you?[noon?]
I hea-eard a whole lot of noise goin’ on outside
An’ then I jumped up, ran outside
And see what they are doin’
Such a sha-ame, such a sha-a-ame*
Had to represent the man
Standin’ outside an’ I breathed some air
They called my mama a witch
And they hung her up by the tree
That’s the last I seen of Mississippi
*JH wrote another song around this line, 'Shame, Shame', Shame' being used as a title. Played as medley with Room
Full Of Mirrors, a 1968 studio version and a 1969 live version exist . He later changed the line of the chorus to ‘It’s Too Bad’, and recorded a complete studio version with that title.
