Scope and Content Note

The lyrics include drafts, lead sheets, and copyrights of her published work after 1960, in addition to much that was never published. The lyrics are organized by titled and untitled lyrics. The titled works are arranged alphabetically, the untitled works are arranged alphabetically by the first word on the page. Many works are undated so they may date prior to 1960.
