DT Lyrics:





Subject: Lyr Req: Last Minstrel Show
From: Jimmy C

Looking for the lyrics of this song. I think it was recorded by Jean Redpath.

Chorus contains these words

"Lay me down Carolina, lay me down
Don't want to wake up in the morning no more
Sing me a slow sad song for this last time
before they close, the Minstrel show>

This is 'Before They Close the Minstrel Show' which is another wonderful song from Bob Coltman.
Ed Trickett also recorded it.
I'll look about a bit.

It's in the DT: Before They Close the Minstrel Show, by Bob Coltman. The MIDI sounds like it has some serious problems, though.

Crossposted! But the sheet music might be useful if the MIDI is on the fritz.

And altogether, ten minutes is not too shabby.

We bad...

The midi looks ok, it just sounds wrong, but I'm pretty sure my machine's misbehaving.

We've had several threads requesting this song, usually as "Last Minstrel Show." I'm wondering why the confusion - do people get it mixed up with The Last Picture Show?
I see Susanne(SKW) has it listed that way on her Website. Oh, now I see - Jean Redpath calls it "Last Minstrel Show" on her extraordinary Leaving the Land CD.

If I ever get my ass in gear and release a new CD, this gem is on it.
