From: belter
Date: 04 Feb 97 - 10:25 AM

there is a song I heard a long time ago that starts out talking about a song the singers grandmother sang. then goes into an apallations still chorus 'come a hye hye he and a dipy dipy dove round the woods the bow wow wow' or something like that. It really stuck in my mind and I wounder if anyone knows the words and who sang or wrote it.

I think the song that you're looking for is called Berayna. It has been recently recorded by Custer La Rue on the album A true lovers Farewell. It has that chorus Hip hip hip and a hi ho down the narrow track a whoop whoop whoop etc.. I'd copy down the lyrics for you except that I seem to have mislaid my album inset with them all. I hope this helps.

I haven't heard Ms. LaRue sing it, but it sounds strangely like a version that Marais and Miranda used to perform. I'll bet that Berayna is a corruption of Beau Reynard.

Hi-
I found the Marais and Miranda version--it sounds like it may be related.

For what it's worth:

BEAU REYNOLDS

The first man I saw was the parson
As sad as he could be,
He swore he saw Beau Reynolds
Go into a hollow tree.

CHO: With me hip-pip-pip an' me ola
Upon that dreaded stream
With me ran-tan-tan an' me tivvy tivvy twam
An' me glass an' me bugle an' me horn
With me juggy juggy jug
Fal derol derol derol
Right through the woods he's gone.

The next man I saw was the ragman
His rag-pack in a sack
He swore he saw Beau Reynolds
Jump over the huntsman's back

The last ma I saw was the miller
A-grinding of his mill
He swore he saw Beau Reynolds
Go over Bunker's hill.

(Marais said it was English in origin. tan-ta-ra!)

Subject: Lyr Add: THREE JOLLY SPORTSMEN
From: Anne Cormack
Date: 05 Feb 97 - 11:21 PM

Hi, I've got a version of something very similar to Dick's, called

THREE JOLLY SPORTSMEN

1. It's of three jolly sportsmen went out to hunt the fox,
But where will we find him, amongst the hills and rocks?

CHORUS: With me hip, hip, hip and me halloa
And away went the merry, merry band,
To me ran-tan-tan, to me chivvy, chivvy, chan,
All over the merry, merry strand.
Ugle, ugle, ugle went the bugle horn,
Fol-de-rol, fol-de-rol, fol-de-riddle-day,
And through the woods we'll go, brave boys,
And through the woods we'll go.

2. Well, the first we met was a fair maid, a-combing out her locks,
She swore she saw Bold Reynolds amongst the farmer's ducks.

3. The next we met was a farmer, a-plowing of his land,
He swore he saw Bold Reynolds amongst the ewes and lambs.

4. And the next we met was a miller, a-working of his mill,
He swore he saw Bold Reynolds run over yonder hill.

5. The next we met was a blind man, as blind as blind could be,
He swore he saw Bold Reynolds run up a hollow tree.

6. And the next we met was a parson, and he was dressed in black
He swore he saw Bold Reynolds upon the huntsman's back.

I'm in a group called Brimstone and Treacle which sings three part unaccompanied traditional Anglo-Celtic songs. We've done a presentation called "Hunting Songs of the British Isles" at a couple of festivals. Anyone interested in more of this ilk let me know.

Cheers!

I'm certianly interest the sort of song you suplied, but the song I was looking for was a song about a song. The song it was about may have been that or some song with a common ansester. I did hear it done on the tv show Nashvile Now a few years agoe, but didn't get the singers name.

This unsolved request has been bothering me, because I think I have heard the song that was requested. It was sometime in the early 80's on Austin City Limits. The best I can come up with is that it might be "Grandma's Song" by Gail Davies. I searched the net for lyrics, but found none. I did find out that she had been on ACL about 1982, although I could have seen a rerun. She did haved a song by that name on a 1979 album. Maybe this will jog the memory of someone else. Otherwise check out the country music section to see if any of her material has been reissued on CD, or head for the nearest used record store. Sorry this is as incomplete as it is. I hope you find it.

I've only heard this song three or four times but it stuck with me. A couple of time I heard it on the radio, and mabe 5,6 years agoe I heard it on Nashvile Now. I glad to get a lead. Sounds like a prity good chance thats the one I'm looking for. Funny really, it doesn't sound like my gandma, but it makes me think of her. This is a song that just gabed me by the heart. I can't thank you enough.
