I stumbled across this live rendition of Janis Joplin singing this song on Youtube www.youtube.com/watch?v=BD13bhEjZt4 The poster of this audio track, CaptiveTemptation, added this information: "Janis appears without her band at 70th birthday party for Ken Threadgill, the Austin club owner who gave her her first singing job. Sorry about the audio quality but it's quite rare. Recorded some 3 months before Janis' untimely death. Enjoy!"
Maybe someone familiar with Wikipedia rules could check if this merits being mentioned in the article. Thank you for your attention and greetings from Germany Reinhard
This song isn't on Janis Joplin's Pearl. All-music-guide doesn't list any recordings of the song by Janis (unfortunately!)... perhaps the author is confusing it with Me and Bobby McGee? --Russell E 04:32, 2 August 2006 (UTC)
What's the official spelling of the song title? AMG alternately spells it "Morning Coming" and "Mornin' Comin'", as does Amazon. How do we go about establishing an 'official' spelling? Alcuin 04:31, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
- BMI lists both "Mornin' Comin'" and "Morning Coming". The copyright office lists "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down" – Hattrem 23:28, 6 May 2007 (UTC)
reference to drugs?
"wishing Lord, that I was stoned" - is the line referred to as Line 9 in the introduction? Because it does not refer to drug use, but until the last two or three decades stoned almost always meant drunk, still in use in the expression "stone drunk". I'm putting a citation needed tag on this claim, and it should have one anyway, regardless of the questionable interpretation of the term. JesseRafe 03:27, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
No. Johnny Cash, in an early 90's interview specifically relates it to drug use. He said it is not offensive, and equated it to “asking the Lord for the serenity of which he has so much.”
The song, as written Kristofferson, intends it to mean drug use. look at the year it was written for a hint of the meaning.
