GUEST,Tinker New Songs for 9-11-2001 (109* d) RE: New Songs for 9-11-01 22 Sep 01

I've been away from the 'Cat for a while and after three tries still can't get my cookie straight, but this has been haunting me for a couple of days. I went to the original as something to help me cheer and this is where it ended up. It doesn't have the quality that other posts here do but I needed to post.

Fireman's Lassie

Can be sung to Fisherman's Lassie with a very slow lament quality

I'm a ramblin' tamballiin fal the do me day
I'm a ramblin tamballin lassie
I'm a ramballin tambalin fal the do me day
And they call me the Fireman's Lassie

My Johnnie was a Fireman fine
You'd never find anyone bolder
He wore his boots up over his knees
And his straps upon his shoulders

One sunny day a call went out
Just like so many others
But then the world just fell away
And he's gone now with his brothers

Oh I hide down at the station house
And sit amongst his brothers
And in their eyes my pain relects
Mirrored by so many others

Two small hands they cling to me
Grieving too for Johnnie
I search for each step day by day
Yet I know he loved me bonnie

I dress my self in my Sunday best
I go forth day by day now
Unbent, unbowed I will go on
For my Johnnie loved me bonnie

Good to be back
