It’s been established that I have a ton of Mary Chapin Carpenter memorabilia. Recently, I came across the piano songbooks that I have, the first of them contains songs from State of the Heart and Shooting Straight in the Dark. The second one was the music from Come On Come On. The third one is this:


It’s an 83-page piano-vocal-guitar book published by Cherry Lane Music in 1997. It includes all the songs from A Place in the World CD and photos from those inside the CD and cassette. Naked to the Eye is the third song in the book though it appears as the ninth track. It also contains complete lyrics in album order. The cost –  $17.95.

This songbook is musically better than the others that I mentioned above. The chords match to the CD when you’re listening to it. Even The Better to Dream of You has an asterisk to indicate that the song was recorded a half step lower. I just noticed that on I Want to Be Your Girlfriend, I noted that the capo is on the fourth fret.

Overall, it’s a nice piece to my collection. Until next time.

Over & Out,

Lisa M. Luck
