Very few Hunter/Mott albums came with lyrics, so we have attempted to rectify the situation with the "lyrics project". This involved listening to every record, every song, and trying to figure out what the lyrics are. The results are presented here.
There are still a small number of albums still to be transcribed; if you can help, then please do!
We also have guitar tablature for a few songs. Again, this is just one or two fans helping with this, so if you can help then please do.
