Thread Name: Songs About Storms
Subject: RE: Songs About Storms
I remember a song ifrom the first Sing Out! with a sound sheet, sometime in the 60s, that began,
"I've been in the storm so long,
I've been in the storm so long,
Singing,'Oh Lord, Give me more time to pray,'
I've been ion the storm so long."
It may have been from some Georgia Sea Island singers; I'm not too sure.
Another one I'm not too sure about, but I think it was from the Carter Family is THE STORMS ARE ON THE OCEAN.
...not really about a storm, but the promise of one; Dave Van Ronk sang MR. Noah which ended:
Well listen young feller, listen young feller,
That's the bluff of your life 'cause you know darn well
It's sprinkeling now, gonna rain like Hell,
Doodley doo, doodley doo,
Doodley doodely doodely doodely doodely doo.
