Subject: Need words and music for two songs
From: lefthanded guitar
Date: 13 Aug 07 - 07:31 PM

I have been googling and yahooing, but can't seem to find the lyrics and chords for two songs I've been wanting to sing again.

Many A Mile, written I believe by Pat Sky but performed by Buffy Sainte Marie.

The Dream Tree- a little known but lovely and haunting Buffy song from an early album.

(I got in a real Buffy mood after seeing her perform this summer, she and her music is more vibrant and meaningful than ever)

Thanx in advance for anyone who can help me with this.

From reading through the Many a Mile... lyrics and having heard Pat Sky sing it many times, the lyrics look totally correct, so Buffy's version (which I've not heard) must not have deviated from Pat Sky's.
I've never seen chording, tab or staff note music for this one but it's not too complicated if you can learn to play it by ear, get Pat Sky's first album on CD and learn it from there.

If you don't mind downloading their player, which I didn't find obnoxious or anything, you can play and pause, the whole of The Dream Tree on Rhapsody.com for free.

Thanks kind folks. These songs have such staying power; I printed out the Many A Mile chords and lyrics and will be singing it at the next song round robin session.

Hey Kat thanks for the site with Dream Tree-I can't load the song on my comuputer b/c I have dial up,   but will try on a friend's when I get a chance. Am looking forward to hearing it again. (btw kat, you are always such a help, that looks like a great website; all her old albums were on it!) Great for me, since so many of my old gems were ruined in a basement flood a couple of years ago.

THE DREAM TREE is on Buffy Sainte-Marie's 1969 album "Illuminations." I found a sound sample at Allmusic.com and transcribed this much:

Lo, how the dream tree is sighing and shaking.
Pretty dreams fall down on me.
Lo, how my poor heart is crying and aching,
Longing for one who is longing for me.

The Dream Tree
© Buffy Sainte-Marie

Lo how the dream tree is sighing and shaking
Pretty dreams fall down on thee
Oh how my poor heart is crying and aching
Longing for one who is longing for me.

I'll sit at home with a light in the window
back to the fire and eyes to, the sea
I'll sit at home with my hand on the cradle
Rocking the love he has given to me.

Long are the hours and long is the waiting
Many the candle to stand and be burned
Women of whalers and women of sailors
soon learn the meaning of worry and yearn.

Women sing their songs of
safe returning for their men
Let him only, one day, some day
Touch my hair again.

Lo how the dream tree is sighing and shaking
Pretty dreams fall down on thee
Oh how my poor heart is crying and aching
Longing for one who is longing for me.
