Thanks Cherif - I'm curious, do these lyrics appear in versions of
"Diaraby/Djaraby" beyond Ali Farka's track on "Talking Timbuktu"? The
version recorded by Ami Koita, for example (
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiZ0WvIc1QY), has the same melody and
refrain, but the verses are different. Is there a "standard" set of lyrics
for this song, and if so do they match the Ali Farka version?
