Subject: 'you are my morning'?
From: Trewissick
Date: 27 Aug 08 - 12:05 PM

Hello,
I'm trying to track down a song I think I heard on Folk on 2 in the late 90's. At least - I can't think where else I might have heard it! I have googled mucho but not managed to trak it down, alhthough there are many songs with similar words! Anyway - I can remember what I think must be the chorus - tune and words. Don't know what the best way to note the tune is so I've put it in solfa, numbers (where 1 is tonic) and letter names as if it were in C...

"You are my morning,
s, d, m, m, r
5, 1, 3, 3, 2
g, c, e, e, d

you are my morning,
s, d, m, m, r
5, 1, 3, 3, 2
g, c, e, e, d

you are my mo-o-o-o-o-rning,
d, d, d1, d1, t, l, s, f, m
1, 1, 8, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3
c, c, c1, c1, b, a, g, f, e

oh yes you are"
s, d, m, r
5, 1, 3, 2
g, c, e, d

If that rings any bells with anyone, that would be great! I could probably provide a midi if this makes as little sense as I suspect it does!

Cheers!
KT

I think this is a Graeme Miles song. I heard it sung many times by Robin Dale at the Durham Folk Club when it was at the Colpitts in the 90's.   A good deal of his repertoire was Graeme Miles and I'm reasonably confident this is one such song - try googling Graeme Miles and see if it sheds any light.

Yes Exercise 77. Don't know where you are but if you're ever up Teesside way Robin Dale or Alex Angel from these parts both sing it superbly, Martyn is of course a massive enthusiast and worthy performer of Graeme's work but for me drags this one a bit.
Its published in 'Songscapes' by Graeme Miles and Robin Dale, not cheap but a lavish book of Graeme's songs and sketches and Robin's photos.

Thanks John. Was just looking at the book's details on a previous post - looks great but might have to save up for a bit! Do you know if it has any background info on the song at all? Teeside is down for me! but if I'm ever down that way, I shall try to get to a club!
Thanks again,
KT

It's a problem of copyright, Jim

Details of the recording and the songbook have been given


For completeness the songbook is called SONGSCAPES - ISBN0 0-9541901-0-6

Trewissick.
The book has no background on any songs and I don't know any except that as the song was written in an Exercise Book on page numbered 77 it is called Exercise 77. But I'll try and find out and come back. On several occasions last and this year Martyn and Graeme did a folk club night together. Martyn singing exclusively Graeme's songs for his second set while Graeme on stage too would tell the audience the scenario of the song or its writing. I was fortunate to get to some of these which were great nights and many floor singers chose also to do songs by Graeme. There is a further book, 'Forgotten Songs Remembered' which was launched at the Grove on the first of the nights described. If you search for the Folk Leads website it'll be deep in there somewhere.

According to Reinhard Zierke's web site,

Martyn Wyndham-Read and No Man's Band sing EXERCISE 77 on "Beneath a Southern Sky," Fellside Recordings, FECD115, 1997—where it is credited to Graeme Miles.
