Subject: Buffy St. Marie: Country Girl Again
From: GUEST,seth in Olympia
Date: 23 Nov 09 - 09:17 PM

Forty-some years ago, when I was in the Air Force, I bought Buffy's " Nashville" album. I loved it from the first time I played it and still do. I wonder if anyone here feels the same way. I find it interesting that I have never heard another artist cover the songs on this record or much comment on it. Can't help but wonder why. Anyhow, " Country Girl Again" is one of the records I grab if the house is burning down.
I'm trying to get the lyrics to " Pretty Good Man if You Ask Me" so that my kids and grand-kids can get the words right when they sing it to me!

Hi, seth -
I'm not familiar with that album, but I see that it's still available on CD. Apparently, the song you're seeking is titled "He's a Preety Good Man."
I don't have the lyrics, but perhaps that information will give you a start.

I love to sing country girl...do you have, or want, thelyrics to this?

"All the lights on Broadway, ain't worth an acre of green..."

I also often sing Piney Wood Hills, that song is on this album.

Joe, check it out if you can. I think you will find that the years have been kinder to this than to a lot of other stuff released on major labels ( Vanguard) in the mid- sixties.

It's a great album. I was quite disturbed about it when it came out, though, because I had such a deep prejudice against country music when I was young, and I was not happy that Buffy, my number one favorite, had done a country album.

Ha! I laugh at myself now for having been so narrow-minded. It's one of her very best albums.

A big Yes! to that, LH. I just now sent the title cut to Joe to correct that gigantic hole in his education. Honestly, don't know what this place is coming to.

Buffy is amazing...she has accomplished a lot since folk music,,
she has a PHD and has written math curriculum for native children 'and has done a lot to encourage first nations youth to express themselves.
she has gotten at least one Juno award.

Subject: Lyr Add: HE'S A PRETTY GOOD MAN IF YOU ASK ME
From: cetmst
Date: 24 Nov 09 - 06:37 AM

From "The Buffy Sainte-Marie Songbook"

HE'S A PRETTY GOOD MAN (IF YOU ASK ME)
As sung by Buffy Sainte-Marie on "I'm Gonna Be a Country Girl Again"

He's got shoulders like a mountain and a smile like a sunny day,
The patience of a gard'ner and a will to find a way.
A mind that's strong and steady and a heart that's good and true.
He's a pretty good man if you ask me.

His eyes are full of love although his life has known its tears.
His soul is full of quiet fire that warms us through the years.
His heart is full of hope and peace and other things we need.
He's a pretty good man if you ask me.

Now his job may not be steady with his name upon the door,
But a dozen well-fed kids I know seldom ask for more.
He remembers all our birthdays with a hug and something nice,
And his lap is the sweetest place we know to make the world seem right.

He's a lot of fun in a ticklin' fight and when the snow is deep
He can calm a frightened animal or rock a child to sleep.
We love him more than tongue can tell and more than song can sing.
He's a pretty good man if you ask me.

We love him more than tongue can tell and more than song can sing.
He's a pretty good man if you ask me.

I never heard one of her songs that didn't make me feel and emotion.
The world is a better place for having her music in it.

All the lights on Broadway

Anyway, "Piney Wood Hills",with "Daddy Bones" on guitar,is MY favourite !

I'm looking for the lyrics to an old Buffy St. Marie tune: "He's a Pretty Good Man(if you ask me)". Need to teach it to my kids and grandkids so the can sing it to me on my next birthday! I think it was one of many great songs on "Gonna Be A Country Girl Again"

Hi, Seth-
I moved your request over here. It should satisfy your question, but fee free to ask more if what's above is not enough.
