Subject: Lyr Req: Lyric for Wayside Tavern by Peter Rowan
From: GUEST,Stracey
Date: 10 Jun 03 - 10:46 AM

Anyone have the Lyric for the Peter Rowan tune Wayside Tavern. It's off the Yonder cd he put out with Jerry Dougles. I'm have trouble with the second verse. I'm not sure of the line after "Wayside Tavern window light/beckons onto me"
Thanks for any help on this.

I transcribed this much from a sound sample at Yahoo! Shopping - Music. It seems to be the part you want.

Wayside tavern window light beckons unto me:
"Tarry by the hearthside bright and seek good company."
I stepped in to join the din...

Now, since you have all the words, why not post them here?

Hi

I don't know who was looking for these originally, but I love this song and just transposed all of the words. Here they are - Enjoy.

WAYSIDE TAVERN
(Jerry Douglas and Peter Rowan)


Winter wind, whining low
Snow covered ground
The midnight sky is black as ink
Snowflakes like stars, fallin' down.

Wayside tavern window light
Beckons unto me
Tarry by the hearthside bright
And seek good company.

Chorus
I stepped in to join the din
So carefree and so loud
Just to lose ol' Mister blues
And mingle with the crowd.

Blue light glows where the whisky flows
In amber down my glass
Burns my lips like your passionate kiss,
I can't let you pass.

Fiddles play love's melody
And calls us to the bliss
And your eyes, like distant stars,
Embrace me in your trance.

(Chorus)

Mornin' sun, new fallen snow,
You're warm within my arms.
Watchin' our breath in frosty air
No strangers to love's charms.

Any time you want me
I'll find a way to you,
By the wayside tavern door
With my old friend, Mister Blues

(Chorus)

I think these are pretty accurate - had a little trouble with "In amber down my glass" line - but I think I got it.

I hear:

Morning LIGHT NOT sun

"FIRE-SIDE bright" NOT hearth-side

and fiddles play love's melody and: "lure us to the DANCE" not bliss

Last verse, first line; Any time you want me NEAR.

Nice song, great recording.

Like Ron, I hear 'hearthside bright' and 'morning sun', and no 'near' in the first line of the last stanza. The only correction by Hootenanny that I agree with is that it should be 'dance' not 'bliss'.

Apologies all round (Christ I sound like Captain Birdseye). I have just pulled out the recording and have to agree with Stewie. I transcribed the words several years back and after learning it have been singing it ever since. I guess my memory went into folk process mode.
I'm off to eat umble pie.

hey ron moleski, thanks for the lyrics. i think the line that ends with 'bliss' is actually 'dance', as it rhymes with 'trance.' thanks again.

Pat Egan and Alex Caton do a very nice version of this on their new CD "Fiddle Tunes and Ballads." The words are slightly changed from those above. But the singing is very distinct and I had no trouble with the lyrics.

WAYSIDE TAVERN - Peter Rowan, B. and Peggy Logan

Winter wind, blowing down
Snow covered ground
Midnight sky as black as ink
Snowflake stars, fallin' down.

Wayside tavern window light
Beckons unto me
Tarry by the hearthside bright
Seek your company.

Chorus
I dropped in, joined the din
So carefree and so loud
Just to lose ol' Mister blues
Mingle with the crowd.

Moonlight glows where the whisky flows
Amber down my glass
Burns my lips like your passionate kiss,
I can't let you pass.

Fiddles play love's melody
Calls us to our dance
And your eyes, like distant stars,
Embrace me in your trance.

(Chorus)

Mornin' star, new fallen snow,
Safe within my arms.
And our breath in the frosty air
Stranger to love's charms.

Any time that you want me near
From my way back to you,
By the wayside tavern door
With my old friend, Mister Blues

(Chorus)

Cheers, S. in Seattle
