    I have a working .ly-file that displays a staff with notes, lyrics and
    chordnames, all correctly counted/aligned.
    I wonder if there is any command to generate a sheet with only chords
    and lyrics, no staves.
    The output should look something like this:
    C               F     C
    Mary had a little lamb
         F               G          C
    Its fleece was white as snow
    with the chord names printed nicely above the corresponding syllable
    (the .ly-file could calculate the alignment from combining the given
    lyrics- and notes-information), but hyphens removed, and linebreaks
    at, say every given number of measures.
    What would be the term to search for, in case there already is some
    ready-to-learn solution?
    I could simply write my sheet in some office programme, but it will be
    easier to transpose things forth and back and to regenerate sheets
    from new and modified files, so I'd really look forward to a solution.
I really find Kieren's solution to be interesting.  I have made a number of 
guitar chord/lyrics sheets like this, and I generally don't use LilyPond. Maybe 
for the benefit of transposing I'll start using LilyPond.

What I've been using is Chordii/ChordPro.  It's not as powerful as LilyPond, 
but also not as complicated.
