Anyone know the words to that Johnny Cash song "But I still miss someone" ? Something like, At my door the leaves are falling da da da da but I still miss someone. Oh I never got over her blue eyes. I see them everywhere...

From: Mark Roffe
Date: 20 Apr 99 - 08:18 PM

At my door the leaves are falling, a cold wild wind has come
Sweehearts walk by together, and I still miss someone.

I go out on a party and look for a little fun
Buit I find a darkened corner 'cause I still miss someone

No I never got over those blue eyes, I see them everywhere
I miss the arms that held me when all the love was there.
I wonder if she's sorry for leaving what we'd begun
There's someone for me somewhere and I still miss someone.

Johnny Cash and Roy Cash, Jr.

Reta,
I have a tape of that fine McEvoy album and it bothers me since decades that one of the song titles is truncated on my transcription of the titles:
It's 'Reflections take of...' and I'd love to know the full title.
And if you happen to have the lyrics of that song (it's the only song on that record that's too difficult for me to transcribe) I'd be very happy.

I found one of my (very) old song lists a week or two ago, and this song was on it. I thought, Of course! -- I used to love that song, how could I forget about it? So have started singng it again. There was a tribute to Johnny Cash on TV on Saturday 4/17, I was at a Jean Ritchie concert and didn't get home that day to tape it, but I figured I'd get out my J. C. albums and give him my own tribute. I still have a 45 of "I Walk The Line."

Hi Hell!

I am sorry to say that I do not have a tape or cd, just the record and at the moment no way to convert it. I will in the near future.

The full title is, "Reflections, Take 1". However, on the record it just says Reflections by J. McEvoy.

I have a lot of mixed music on tapes and I just may have that one lurking somewhere. I will do my best to find it for you. May take a bit of time. Blessings Reta

Thanks, Reta, for providing this information and promising more. Yes, that title makes sense to me now. I hadn't been able to find a tracklist of that record on the web. I have listened to several other McEvoy reords later, but I never liked them as much as I like 'For the poor and the gentry'.

COWPIE has the Cashes listed as the authors...once had a Linda Ronstadt album, on which she sang it. God, I loved that girl. Who would have ever left her? She wouldn't have missed me, cuz I'd be at her door every day.

'Course then she'd of pulled a Dan Hicks on me, by asking the musical question: "How Can I Miss You When You Won't Go Away?"

The Cash special was really great, and avoided all the smarmy tribute-type cliches. Someone sang "Miss Someone", but damned if I can remember who.

TNT would always mention one Wyclef Jean in their promos. Not being up on current music, I wondered who in hell that was. Well, he was probably the highlight of the show, singing "Delia's Gone", as straight country blues, with a little rap thrown in. That combination may sound horrid, but it actually worked quite well.

From: Reta
Date: 28 Apr 99 - 07:54 PM

Hi Wolfgang!

My friend just brought in the tapes of the McEvoy LP recordings and I think I have most of Reflections figured out except for a word or two which I think will come soon.

REFLECTIONS by Johnny McEvoy

Your years are but few but your thoughts have long grown old,
Because of your tears, your soul has long grown cold,
You tremble with fear the long night draws near and settles deep down inside you,
And (? ?) to have nothing to do but to hold on to those all around you.

Your eyes are now clouded with mist that comes from your mind,
You're searching for something that's yours but you know you won't find,
But into the darkness you enter and hope that someone will come,
And all about your eyes with whispers and sighs and leave you alone with the dawn.

(Three loud, moaning echoes)

No more will you open the red ribbon thoughts of your dreams,
'Cause wise men have said that nothing's as real as it seems,
The search will soon end and then you will see the reason for crying is gone,
And then you will find that although you are (?youth?) you are not really that much alone.

I hope this will help. I think I will be able to make out the missing words if I listen when I am not so tired. Will send them on when I do.

Blessings

Thanks so much, Reta. This Johnny McEvoy record was the first folk record I ever bought and it was the first I tried to transcribe. I was quite successful as I found out later (when I found these songs in books or in Mudcat). But I gave up on this song.

Wolfgang, I do believe you have it. I listened to it a few times and The third time it came in clear.

I also think the word 'Youth' is correct in the last verse. It makes sense in the verse also. It's really a great song. I'm glad you needed the words otherwise it would have gone by without much notice by me. The loud echo is what throws me off of it. I do not like that sound, therefore, I just ignored the whole song.

I sure hope Catspaw is back soon.

Hi Wolfgang;

Do You have McEvoy's "With an Eye to Your Ear" album? Portabello Road is on it and that is the one I loved best of all his recordings. I have to smile everytime I hear it. It's an all time great 'feel-good' song.

Hi Reta,

what a coincidence. 'With an eye to your ear' is the only other McEvoy album I have on tape (exception: a recent tape and a couple of rare life recordings from Germany back in the late 60s or in the early seventies). And just last Friday I tried hard to find those lyrics for they are the only ones on that album I do not have yet (too fast singing for my ear). I nearly found them, for I found a site with lyrics for the first Cat Stevens album which also has this song on it (obviously at least coauthored by Cat Stevens). But this was one of the few missing songs. You even can listen to that song on the web (http://catstevens.com/media/albums/daydo.html)! I'd love to have the lyrics though, for this song and "Bus 22 to Bethlehem" are the last two McEvoy song I still miss the lyrics of (to keep in the spirit of this thread). My favourite fro ever MvEvoy song will be "The hedgehog song" (taped from the radio), for I was in the audience when this was recorded and I was not alone and just when Johnny McEvoy sung "I'm not the kind to complain that I never had a girl to love" she took my hand. It lasted only about six weeks but I'll never forget that of course, for we were so young then. Beside that, it's not a bad song either.

Subject: Lyr Add: PORTOBELLO ROAD (Stevens and Fowley)
From: Reta
Date: 09 May 99 - 01:54 PM

Hi Wolf:

I have been gone for a few days but I am a bit confused by which songs you need. Is Portobello Road and Bus 22 To Bethlelem the ones you want?

PORTOBELLO ROAD by Stevens and Fowley

Getting hung up all day on smiles,
Walking down Portobello Road for miles,
Greeting strangers, in Indian boots,
Yellow ties and old brown suits,
Growing old is my only danger.

Cuckoo clocks and plastic socks,
Lampshades of old antique leather,
Nothing is weird, not even a beard,
Are the boots made out of feathers?

I keep walkin' miles 'til I feel the room beneath my feet,
Or the hawkin' eyes of an old stuffed bull across the street.

Nothings the same 'til you see it again,
It will be broken down to litter,
Even the clothes, everyone knows,
That the dress will never fit her.

(Repeat the first two verses again)

Sorry about the lines, I can't seem to get songs on in verse form, everything runs together. I thought this would at least separate the verses when you print them.

The song is as I have always sung it. I listened to the tape and it sounds right. Will try for Bus 22 soon.

Blessings
Reta

By the way, I think this is one of the songs I sent to the Mudcat along with some other songs during the first part of the year. (Or maybe very late last yr.) None were ever posted so I figured I was doing it all wrong. I did receive a letter thanking me, but as I said, they never appeared. One was a very beautiful ballad called "Slaney Valley". Did U ever hear it?

Subject: Lyr Add: BUS 22 TO BETHLEHEM (B. Cole)
From: Reta
Date: 09 May 99 - 05:20 PM

Hi again, again!

I am going to attempt Bus 22 using a method Philipa suggested. She said to put
at the end of the sentences. Here goes.

BUS 22 TO BETHLEHEM by B. Cole

We rode a bus that was taking us to the town of Bethlehem.
We left at eight from Damascus gate from the edge of Jerusalem.
With old King David at the wheel we rode along our way,
Past the holy manger store and the three wise men café.
Seven thousand people filled the square.
The mayor and the governor were there.
Voices from the horde cried, "We want the Lord".
They were getting bored in Bethlehem.

Old men waved from the limestone caves and the friendly factory,
And everyone was laden down with crafts and rosaries,
With crucifixes, (sounds like cordaglans), the Star of David pins.
With misty eyes, and zoom-zoom pies we watched the show begin.
Five men dressed in ashes blew their horns.
A man put on the crown of paper thorns.
He gave a number coughs to his plastic cross.
We were all impressed in Bethlehem.

It represents that sad accent to the Hill of Calvary.
From underneath the grand stone bell Mrs. Jones replied, "I see".
In the dark the Patriarch was busy with his books,
While the Christians and the Muslims exchanged frozen looks.
Come and see the twisted olive tree,
Twisted by the passing centuries.
All you have to do, if you're passing through,
Is take bus 22 to Bethlehem.

Well Wolfgang, I cried the whole time I was working to unravel the words to this one. I could not bring myself to use capital letters on the holy manger store or the three wise men café. It is a very thought provoking song.

I just looked at the clock and I have been over 2 hours with this one. Thanks so much for asking for the words as it is another I only listened to without really hearing it.

The word I couldn't make out must be a word for a Muslim icon of some sort as the Catholic rosary and Jew's Star of David are mentioned.

Blessings
Reta
p.s. Let me know if you find the missing word please.

Portobello Road

Getting hung up all day on smiles
Walking down Portobello Road for miles,
Greeting strangers in Indian boots, yellow ties and old brown suits,
Growing old is my only danger.

Cookoo clocks, and plastic socks,
Lampshades of old, antique leather,
Nothing is weird, not even a beard,
Are the boots made out of feathers?

I keep walkin' miles, 'til I feel the room beneath my feet,
Or the hawkin' eyes of an old stuffed bull across the street.

That the dress will never fit her.

That is much better, isn't it?

Hi Wolfgang, I just pulled up the Hedgehog song and It is cute. I have never heard of it before. The experience you had as a youngster would make it very special indeed. Nothing like a youth who is smitten.
Some of the wording in Bus 22 sounds so strange, perhaps asking in a new thread for corrections would smooth it out? I come up with the same words no matter how much I listen.

Hi Reta,

thanks so much for these two songs. I hear the music in my head when I read them silently. I have been away for nearly two weeks, that's the only reason for not responding earlier.
I'll relisten to these two songs tonight (my computer isn't where my music is).
just from memory: "sad accent" might be "said ascent". No, I never heard of "Slaney Valley", I'll have a look at that ballad.
Reta, do not expect to see your contributions in the DT much earlier than after about one year. They make the update twice a year and they have to do such a lot of editing and all that before the actual update that they (Dick, Max and Susan) just can't make it faster. You are not the first one to wonder though.

Reta,
with your lyrics before me, I relistened. Here's what I hear:

Portobello Road sounds perfect to me, perhaps (??) line 8 starting with 'all' instead of 'are'.

Bus 22:
- can't help with cordoglans
- verse 2, line 7: he gave an upper toss (?) (it should be toss for the rhyme.
- verse 3, line 1: I think it's "said ascent"
- verse 3, line 2: I rather hear "grime stone" (does it make sense?
- before last line, a typo: 'you're' should replace 'your'.

Hi! Sorry for the typos. It still sounds like
"sad ascent"&

"he gave a number of coughs to his plastic cross", which describes the poor acting by the person who is playing Jesus in the show, and is attempting to be dramatic on the way to the crucified.
(does that make sense?)

"Grim stone" sounds good, but I still hear "grand"

Last line is "you're" as U have it.

I think we have gone as far as we can with it and it might be a good time to start a thread and ask if anyone else might know the words.

I think you are pretty close and if it were I, I'd just use what makes the most sense. I think I will surf about and see if McEvoy has a web site.

Wolfgang, sorry I didn't get back sooner.

I caught another mistake, I think!

Verse 2, line 2, 'laden down with crafted rosarys'

Verse 2, line 7, 'upward toss', (you were right.)

I still hear 'sad ascent' in verse 3, line1.

Also, verse 3, line2, is still 'grand stone'.

I really think this is all correct.

As for 'cordaglans', I am going to call the college and see if a friend of mine from the East can figure that out.

Reta,
thanks, it's getting better and better. And you are more than generous to say I was right when I had heard "upper toss" which is now "upward toss" and this way makes much more sense.
I volunteer another far shot: 'cordoglans' has the sound of 'caught a glance', but I can't fit that yet into the semantics of that line.
It's fun to approach more and more perfection.

Hi again!
I do believe that 'cordaglan' will be some sort of object that is connected to and used by Muslims in the practice of their faith someway. The reason I think that is because the rosary and star of David are mentioned in connection with the Catholic and Jewish faiths.

Too late. My friend had left so I will try again tomorrow.

"I Still Miss Someone"
I Still Miss Someone


At my door the leaves are falling
A cold wild wind has come
Sweethearts walk by together
And I still miss someone

I go out on a party
And look for a little fun
But I find a darkened corner
because I still miss someone

Oh, no I never got over those blues eyes
I see them every where
I miss those arms that held me
When all the love was there

I wonder if she's sorry
For leavin' what we'd begun
There's someone for me somewhere
And I still miss someone

It appears to be credited to Johnny Cash. I had thought of it as a Carter Family song. Of course, Johnny Cash was part of the Carter Family.
