Did Dave Van Ronk ever write any love songs? I ask cos I imagine he'd right a really good one.

Utah Phillips, on the rare occasions he wrote love songs, wrote them really well: straight to the point, always humanist, never transcendental and incredibly moving. I'd have thought VR would probably be similar.

From: bobad

Here's one that he righted.

ANOTHER TIME AND PLACE - Dave Van Ronk

When first I met you years ago
in another time and place
a thought came to my mind
I'd never seen a kinder face
or warmer laugh and gentler smile
or eyes so full of light
I'd be a fool if I didn't fall
in love with you that night

We've tramped around the world my dear
our fortune was to roam
but each place that I've been with you
that place has been my home
if now I wander on alone
with no place to abide
I'll be content for I was sent
those wanderings at your side

Love that blossoms in the night
can't stand the test of time
it ebbs and flows it comes and goes
no reason reach nor rhyme
as each day becomes another day
each year another year
I'd trade a year in heaven
for a day with you my dear

The miles flow on and I am gone
to a wild and empty land
where time's like an empty room
and space an empty hand
and the things we said and the jokes we made
are echoes in the waste
we'll meet again when hills are green
in another time and place

[repeat 1st verse]

Bobad, this is certainly the one I would have picked. "I'd trade a year in heaven for a day with you my dear."

Not only one of his best but IMHO it's up there on the top shelf of all time greatest Love Songs. Wonderfully written & the music is just as pleasing

Just get the CD "Going Back to Brookyn".

His voice is still strong and his playing, as always, in a class by itself.

All the songs are original, but some like like "Head Inspector" were done in the 60s and the new versions are all-acoustic.
