"Public Domain"

If a song is listed as Public Domain, the lyrics could be posted with the chords, am I correct? The reason I ask is because Jeremy Camp's "Give Me Jesus" is Public Domain, and I would love to have the lyrics with the chords.

Correct. More accurately, the lyrics are public domain. The song taken as a whole is not. You are free to share the lyrics but not the song (so no file-sharing).

Here's question, if a song is listed as Public Domain, then can I record my or my band playing it and put it on CGR?

This negatively affected my tone in ways that I just can't describe.
Then, on a whim, a few years ago I wandered into a Bath and Body Works store at a local mall and picked up some of their gentle foaming anti-bacterial hand cleansers.
The difference in my guitar's sound is so wickedly improved that I no longer feel the need to buy a new amp or pedals or even strings...EVER!
So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.

If you're going to submit a version with lyrics, please put a note at the top for that Artist Admin. He will probably not know that the song is public domain.
