I've got this darn tune going through my head right now and don't know the name or the lyrics, other than a very small scrap that goes

I don't know the roads you've traveled, or what lies in ? for you, but my love/heart is with you always, so adieu, kind/dear friends, adieu.

HELP!!!!!!!!!

Well, it's not the traditional "Tavern in the Town" which has the same [phrase in it.

I can tell you that much--so by elinimitating that, you have one less possible answer. Isn't that helpful? Now to eliminimate all the other dseventy billion candidates...

Jacqui, some years ago we had a rather thorough discussion on the song "Tavern" here thread.cfm?threadid=13314

And I just now checked, the Wally Cox real audio version I referenced on 13 Oct 03 - 09:29 PM is still there. Again, I had not looked into that orphaned site for quite some time, but it is still there and has several things that might be of interest.

Now I no longer use real audio, and refuse even to have the program on my machines, but if you use it and want to listen, there it is free for the asking. If you are like me and refuse to use real audio in any form, then just ask and I will send you an MP3.

It's certainly not The Tavern in the Town or anything connected to it. It's a farewell song and the snippet you remember jacqui has been going roung in my head since I read this thread but the song stays elusively out of reach.

I don't know the road you travel
Or the .....? that waits for you
But my heart is with you always
So adieu ....? friends , adieu

The song is 'Beyond the Distant Hills' by Lawrence Dean, recorded by Martyn Wyndham-Read on 'Oceans in the Sky' and by Whaley and Fletcher on 'Fit for Reclining'.

BEYOND THE DISTANT HILLS
(Lawrence Dean)

The wheel of fate rolls ever on, it takes us where it will.
Some must stay and some must go beyond the distant hills.
You always were a friend to me, we've been through thick and thin.
These parting words I'm bound to say. Where do I begin?

CHORUS:
   For I don't know the road you travel, nor what lies in wait for you,
   But my heart is with you always. Now adieu, dear friend, adieu.

As I recall in days gone by our friendship and our cheer,
I can't foresee much joy for me when you're no longer here.
And far across the ocean wide, wherever you may be,
As oft as I shall think of you, I hope you'll think of me.

And so I come to wish you well for ever from this day.
May fortune shine a light on you, and guide you on your way.
For I don't know the road you travel, nor what lies in wait for you.
But my heart is with you always. Now adieu, dear friend, adieu.

Lovely song

Gosh, Doctor, that is amazing. I searched for this in basically every way I know how and came up completely empty. The closest I got was pointers to THIS thread, which of course was entirely useless . . . until now.

I took the words down from MW-R's version. W&F is slightly different in the assignment of the chorus, and the treatment of the last verse, which is obviously only half the length of the others.

Yes, of course! I've even got the CD somewhere but just hadn't matched it up as containing that song. Definitely one to learn, it needs wider recognition.

Thanks The Doctor, you've probably saved what sanity I had left!

Well as usual people do things differently. And the words change too! Martin W-R has slightly changed the chords when he plays it on the 'it takes us where it will' bit. So up to you. When they play it together they settle on MW-R's way of playing it - MW-R and LD playing together

MW-R plays in Drop D (DADGBE) and G chord is 55000x. Sometimes plays a bass string run up to the D chord sometimes not. There is a swift single note D at beginning of song - or play the chords of some part of the song as an intro

****

Lawrence Dean plays it differently. In DADGAD and sings it in F# but also plays slightly different chords in the verse
Chords he plays at 4th fret in DADGAD (or 5th fret when he plays with MW-L)
D 000200
G1 020000 G2 020020
A 002002
