Subject: Lyr Add: ONLY AN HOUR UNTIL MORNING (George Ward)

Kendall asked me to learn this one but I couldn't find the lyrics anywhere so, here they are. This is a really pretty song!

We wed in July and the creeks were all dry as we rode through the dark at the end of the day
She sat there beside me and gently did chide me for all of the dawdling we did on the way
And the darkness came down many miles from the town
Where me and my new wedded wife was to stay
It's often she'd scold me and often she told me it's only an hour until morning.

Our work took us off to the ends of the earth I was learning my job, I had no time to play
And I ranted and cursed when I had it the worst
For me too much to do left me too much to say
There were nights when she cried still she stayed by my side
Though it tore her and tore me own self by the way
It's often she'd scold me and often she told me it's only an hour until morning.

We learned we were grown we lived on our own worked at our jobs and wasted our pay
And time was the treasure we spent without measure
On ourselves and on friends who we met by the way.
If you asked for a song you'd have four before long
We'd neither one bide when the first had his say
It's often she'd scold me and often she told me it's only an hour until morning.
If you asked for a song you'd have four before long
We'd neither one bide when the first had his say
It's often she'd scold me and often she told me it's only an hour until morning.

Yes, it certainly is that! I never knew that George Ward wrote it. Ed Trickett's recording on Folk Legacy was the great one that set the standard for me.

Jacqui, I'd love to hear your doing o' it!

The first time I heard it was from George, sometime around 1973 or 1974, possibly at the Niskayuna festival. I didn't know Ed Trickett had recorded it.

Kendall and I will be working on it Art.

I have to learn both tune and lyrics so it might be a while! I think that this is the advantage to coming to the folk scene late - there is so much NEW (to me) stuff out there that I've yet to hear and maybe learn.

Jeri, Ed recorded it for Folk Legacy on his album, Gently Down the stream of time.He and I have similar taste in songs.
