While mistranslating some songs on another thread
Fun With Mangled Lyrics
I found a true killer last line to Carrickfergus (trust German to be right to-the-point):

"Come all you young men and put me down."

Presumably with one of those "humane killers" vets used on large animals? No doubt, many who've heard this song too often, would agree....

The Highwayman again...

Back, he spurred like a madman, shrieking a curse to the sky
With the white road smoking behind him, and his rapier brandished high!
Blood red were his spurs i' the golden noon; wine red was his velvet coat
When they shot him down on the highway
Down like a dog on the highway
And he lay in his blood on the highway, with a bunch of lace at his throat.

Big Mick, thanks for posting all the lyrics to George Papavgeris's song. It's very powerful and very personal.

I have two alternate verses to the same song, and they're both about dying.

The sailors in their life belts were rescued from the sea
But the wicked captain perished with the Golden Vanity,
A giant wave came over and it swept him out to sea,
Now he's sinking in the lowlands, lowlands, lowlands,
Now he's sinking in the lowlands low.

and

And the boy bowed his head; down sank he,
And he said farewell to the Golden Vanity
As she lay along the lowland, lowland low
As she lay along the lowland sea.

Prior to Walt's discovery of "The World's Shortest Folk Song," he would sometimes introduce the following as "The World's Shortest Love Song:"
My sweetheart's the mule in the mines;
I drive her without reins or lines.
On the bumper I sit
And I chew and I spit
All over my sweetheart's behind.

To Don Firth:

Did Walt Robertson introduce that two-liner as "The world's shortest folk song?" It definitely rings a bell...

Back in time, there were songs that were, eventually, done to death. An old chestnut that springs to mind is, "Oh, Mary, Don't You Weep." It was a song I never did, but to which I felt compelled to add a verse one evening, after a particularly lame performance by some preening wanna-be. To wit: "River Jordan's deep and wide,
                              Clean rest rooms on the other side..."

Oh, well; it worked that time...

Subject: Lyr Add: EMPTYHANDED (George Papavgeris)
From: Big Mick
Date: 23 Sep 07 - 01:01 AM

I may have missed it, but how's this for a killer lyric:

My arms and back are strong, and I have worked all hours that the good Lord gave
But for my efforts I have had so very little in return
This soil is too unyielding to the plough
Too hard to soften with the sweat that trickles from my brow
The crop so weak that there is almost nothing left to burn.

My savings went to buy this land, but all it's good for is to bury me
Unless I find a way to make it pay that could be very soon
The future that I dreamed as a young man
Is withered like the crops beneath the unrelenting sun
The very one that makes this such a lovely afternoon.

So what would happen if I just went right on walking till I disappeared
And would they miss me if I had a mind the countryside to roam
They followed me with hopes for Paradise
The one thing I can't do right now is look them in the eyes
I wish this road would swallow me and never take me home.


Then there is the chorus

It's not the setting sun that makes my face look red
You rich will never understand it
And if I walk as if my shoes were made of lead
It's the shame of coming back home emptyhanded.


George Papavgeris is one of the most talented songwriters working today, and in the long view will be remembered as a man who captures the essence of everyday, working folks life experience. As a labor organizer, and activist, I believe his fame and respect will long outlive him.

"Oh, it's fine I like your bed
And it's better I like your sheets
But it's best I like the fair young maid
Who lies in my arms asleep, who lies in my arms asleep..."

That's got to be the nerviest comeback of all time by the good Matty Groves. Mind you, a man can afford to be nervy when his imminent and violent death appears to be a virtual certainty! ;-) Still, I have to admire the lad's pluck to come up with those lines, given the situation. One wonders if Lady Arlen was literally "asleep" through the brief verbal exchange between Matty and Lord Arlen...I think probably not. More likely, she was momentarily just at a loss for words.

"And my belly's cravin', I've got a shakin' in my head
Feel like I'm dyin' and I wish I was dead
If I live till tomorrow, that'll be a long time
And I'll reel, and I'll fall, and I'll die on Codi'ne
And it's reel, and it's real, one more time..." - Buffy Sainte-Marie

"Sometimes I recall what others have said
Love is for lovers, in love and full grown
Life's for the living, and death's for the dead
And the death of a heart is a fathom unknown." - Buffy Sainte-Marie

"Now that the pride of the sires receives charity
Now that we're harmless and safe behind laws
Now that my life's to be known as your heritage
Now that even the graves have been robbed
Now that our own chosen way is a novelty
Hands on our hearts, we salute you your victory
Choke on your blue, white and scarlet hypocrisy
Pitying the blindness that you've never seen
That the eagles of war whose wings lent you glory
They were never no more than carrion crows
Drove the wrens from their nest, stole their eggs, changed their story
The mockingbird sings it, it's all that she knows
And, "Ah, what can I do?" say a powerless few
With a lump in your throat and a tear in your eye
Can't you see that their poverty's profiting you?
My country 'tis of thy people you're dying." - Buffy Sainte-Marie

That last song was a devastatingly powerful comment in the historical time in which it was recorded, and it got her blacklisted off all North American radio stations for at least 10 years (at the most crucial point in her musical career), courtesy of the US government pulling some quiet strings by means of the FBI, etc....as Lyndon Johnson reportedly said, "Methinks the lady protests too much".

Big Mick is spot on about The Dutchman. Michael Smith has the knack. My favorite version is that of Steve Goodman's, who also gave us a the world's most concise blues song:

My baby came to me this morning
She said I'm sort of confused.
If me a B.B. King both were drowning,
Which one would you choose?
and I said Whoa....baby, I said Whoa....baby,
I said Whoa....baby, I ain't never heard you play me no blues.

I'll offer two extracts of songs - one old, one modern. First, from Burns:

"Had we never loved sae kindly,
Had we never loved sae blindly,
Never me - or never parted -
We had ne'er been broken-hearted."

And then there's Joni Mitchell's "Little Green" (about giving her baby up for adoption) - I could quote any of it, but the lines that say so much in so few words, for me, are:

"You write him a letter and say 'Her eyes are blue',
He sends back a poem, and she's lost to you"

I could do a whole thread of killer lines just from the verses of "The Dutchman".

.......not the kind of man to keep his thumb jammed in the dam that holds the dreams in..

.......sometimes she sees her unborn children in his eyes..

......I used to be a young man, and dear Margaret remembers that for me..

......His cap and coat are patched with love that Margaret sewed there...

......Sometimes he thinks that he's alone and calls her name

......She makes the bed up humming some old love song, She learned it when the tune was very new. She hums a line or two, they hum together, in the night.....



That just might be the most amazing love song ever written, certainly right at the front of the queue.

All the best,
