Subject: RE: After the Getaway -- 2013
Thank you Dani for the ringing endorsement. Since I saw only reference to three songs I sang, with one of those being at the pre-Getaway party, I'll throw out a few more, where I wasn't going to bother before. Besides the aforementioned "Ain't Going To Sea No More" (about destroyers, learned via Oscar Brand), "Wild Boy" (trad. from Will Duke & Dan Quinn) and Mary, Don't You Weep" (trad. from everywhere) , I did "William Riley" (trad. from Mary Jane Queen), "The Emmigrant Song" (by Benji Armstrong), "Waiting For A Train" (Jimmie Rodgers) , "Stagger Lee" (via Archibald, Lloyd Price and Dr. John), "Lifeboat Horses" (with permission from Andrew McKay), Kazoo variations on "The Three Cornered Hat" (inspired by my father's old recording by Paul LaValle & The Cities Service Band Of America) .There were also more turn-of-the-century pop songs, English music hall songs, hymns, spirituals and Broadway tunes than can be listed or remembered from Phil Fox's campfire. And folk, country, nautical and Irish from Gene's Thursday night bash.
Dani, I'll PM you the destroyer song lyrics.
