the Blues Concordance, aka Horse v. mule

The on-line version of Michael Taft's concordance to blues lyrics is
evidently not complete, or not reliable.  I looked for "fore-day
creep" and found nothing under "fore-day", whether filed under F or
under ' (as in "'fore-day").   But under "creep" I found a record by
Barbeque Bob, 1927, with "fore-day creep".  The record title was given
as "Fo-Day Creep" but the line was transcribed by Taft as "Fore...."

But I'm still glad to see this is available.
