I Can't Tell  PAu003775443 2012-12-05 Music by Jim Lauderdale
(1) see untitled album by Robert Hunter
(2) see Ballad Of Buddy Holly
(3) probably for the soundtrack of the movie "Armageddon Rag". The song Armageddon Rag was registered in 1984, described as "on 1 sound cassette + lyrics ... with Ragin' and Ashman." Hunter has performed Ragin' in solo concerts, but I've never seen any other references to Ashman (described in the registration as "lyrics with chord symbols). Of the other songs linked to the movie "Armageddon Rag", Resurrection Rag was also registered (separately) in 1984, as "words only". Blood On The Sheets, and Raise Your Arms, Clap Your Hands do not seem to have been registered.
(4) these lyrics were included in various registrations for songs where Jim Lauderdale wrote the music. So these may have been lyrics which Lauderdale decided not to set.

ASCAP has a listing of songs registered to Robert Hunter. These are the ones which don't seem to have been performed or recorded by Hunter or others:

ASCAP also has listing for Hunter/Anton compositions titled Mercury Blues and Friday's Child. Both songs were recorded by Zero, but are by other artists. I assume the ASCAP listing is a mistake.
