GUEST,CBJames Lyr Req: B-b-b-b-barbecue (7) RE: LYR REQ: B-b-b-b-barbecue 06 Jul 02

Thanks Folks,

Sounds like there are a few BBQ songs out there - but the one I am looking for is relatively local.

I did indicate this might be a test. How many Cape Bretoners can you grill - if they don't turn up?

I can make a deal. I can even remember and honour a deal. Sounds like Joe has a good song tucked away there in his grey cells & Hrothgar's offer of an Eric Bogle song entices too. Must admit though, in both cases - unless the the song's hilarious across cultures it could fall flat - and then why would I want to learn it except as a mudeum piece.

{Aside here - Discovering not only my children, but my employees belong to different generation musically. A Woman approaching thirty who works for me is taking up guitar and wants to learn chords. I throw out suggestions of popular Canadian woman songwriterswhose songs I know how to play and can easily scribble down chords.

McGarrigle Sisters? - This drew a blank stare. "you must know "Heart Like a Wheel" Lynda Ronstad covered that." - another blank stare.

Suddenly realized that when these songs impressed me they may or may not have been available to or have impressed her parents who were probably too busy conceiving her at the time. Oh Lord, it's becoming far too easy to be humble"}

So the deal is this. Joe - if you can find your BBQ song @ post a tune for it as well I will be able to learn it. Hrothgar- if you can do the same with the Bogle song, I will be happy to learn that one too. {Always 'appy to learn Aussie tunes since m' repertoire's limited to "Down by Blondike's Pier"} When I find it I'll let you know and I'll put a tune to it. It is a lovely song.
