Subject: Lyr Req:No other name
From: lefthanded guitar
Date: 29 Jun 07 - 05:13 PM

I am almost ashamed to ask for the words, chords and singer of this old chestnut that, for reasons unknown, has been rolling around in my head lately. I don't remember it as being a particularly good song, but I'd like to know where I heard it from.

some of the lines go

Know me by the light
of the fire burning bright


know me if you will
by the wind on the hill
you'll know me by no other name.


I remember hearing this song a lot when I was in high school, but danged if I can get beyond these scraps of lyrics.

Thanks for the links, Peace.   I used to do that song back in the day (though it's a bit melodramatic for my taste now), and it's good to have a handy-dandy lyric-chords sheet.

Thanks to all who sent this. it is much appreciated. (I don't think there's anywhere else on the web would I be able to ask about a decades old song like this and get such a prompt answer - I took a while to find the thread again) I know the song is a bit heavy on sentiment but first heard it in grade school so it still have resonance to me. I bet I actually owned that album myself years ago.

The best place to get Peter, Paul and Mary lyrics is www.peterpaulandmary.com . There are a few mistakes in the lyrics, but very few. It started as a fan site, and then became the official PP&M site. The site has lyrics for all PP&M songs, and chords for a few. It does have a link to an external site with chords for this song - (click).
    NO OTHER NAME
    Noel Paul Stookey- Neworld Media Music Publishers ASCAP

    Know me by the light of a fire shinin' bright,
    Know me by your bed where I've lain
    Know me, and you might, if just for a night
    You'll know me by no other name.

    Some girls will bring you silver
    Some will bring you fine Spanish lace
    Some will say "I love you"
    Some will have my face.

    Some will bring you gold, babies to hold,
    I'll bring you only pain.
    You can know me, if you will, by the wind on the hill
    You'll know me by no other name.

    Some girls will die for money,
    Some will die as they're born,
    Some will swear they'd die for love,
    Some die ev'ry morn.

    I'll die alone, away from my home
    Nobody knows where I came.
    The stone at my head will say I am dead,
    It knows me by no other name.
    It knows me by no other name.



This song comes from Album 1700 (1967). I like the album, but I think it marks the apex of PP&M's trip away from "folk" music. Not a single song on this album has traditional roots.

I'm trying to get a bit of information about the meaning of this song but it seems the link posted above is a broken. Does anyone have some info to share about this lovely song?

Hi, Lassie, this song came out on the 1967 PP&M album, Album 1700. I believe this was the first album PP&M recorded with songs that were primarily from modern songwriters. Noel Paul Stookey usually writes songs from his own imagination, not based on other songs or pieces of literature. The meanings of his songs are usually quite cryptic. I don't know if you'll find an explanation of the song - it's not explained in the album notes.

Thank you Joe! As always you are the man with answer. I wish I could tote you around in my phone. :-) It is indeed cryptic but if I'm going to sing it then I like to know the feeling or reason behind it. I guess this one will just be me singing a mystery.

Joe,

It's not quite true to say that none of the tracks on Album 1700 has traditional roots. Bob Dylan's Dream was inspired by and uses the tune of Martin Carthy's version of Lady Franklin's Lament/Lord Franklin.

I'm always thrilled to hear people talking about Album 1700---which I think may have been one of the most under-rated albums of all time. Especially side 1---some incredible songs, beautiful arrangements.
