Subject: Chord Req: Past Carin'
From: Muttley

Hi Folks

I've recently heard the Bushwackers version of Henry Lawson's "Past Carin'" and it has just nailed me. I've always loved the poem itself but the gloomy chording and way of playing they have produced has really set it apart as a song of desperation (as it was intended when written as a poem) - they really bullseyed Lawson's intent, I feel.

However, all feelings and admiration aside: Can ANYbody help me with the chording please: usual style - bracketed chord preceding the word at the change-point. ie [c] blah blah blah [g] blah blah etc

For the record, lyrics have been posted in this thread (click). Muttley, do the Bushwackers use the melody written by Phyl Lobl?

I heard Martin Wyndham Read do this in Damarascotta recently and knew it was one to learn. It's good to have been able to get the tune. Thanks Joe.

The Bushwhackers use the Steve Ashley melody, not the Phyl Lobl. If you can get the Chris Kempster book, The Songs of Henry Lawson, it has notes and chords.

Yeah, thanks Joe - but the lyrics are pretty easy to come by given they're from a well-known poem; but for someone with an ABI that can't pick chords from music - it was the latter I needed.

Gerry - I'll have to look for the songbook you mentioned.

G'day Muttley,

I'll be going through a stack of standard texts for Australian song ... putting up a "Suggested Songs" list for this Friday Night's song-based night at the Bush Music Club.

I'll check to see if the Bushwackers' Song Book(s) have there chord structure ... and I'll encode it as you prefer ... if it is there. I tend to use Phyl lobl's version, myself, and that's gloomy enough for me!

Regards,

Bob Bolton

G'day again Muttley,

I think this is what you are looking for:

Past Caring

Henry Lawson: Adapted and set to music by Steve Ashley: Chords by line:-

(Intro) (Bm) | (A) (Bm) |    | (A) (Bm) |
(Bm) Up and down the sidling brown
The (A) great black crows are (Bm) flyin',
And down below the spur, I know,
An (A) other milker's (Bm) dyin';
The ( F#m) crops have withered (E)from the (F#m) ground,
The (D) tank's clay bed is (E) glarin',
But (Bm) from my heart no tear nor sound,
For (A) I have got past (Bm) carin' –

Past (F#m) worryin' (F#m/A) or (E/G#) car (C#m) in' –
Past (D) feelin' aught or (E) carin';
(Bm) From my heart no tear nor sound,
For (A) I have got past (Bm) carin' –
