Y'know...Emmy is so beautiful that there should be a law agin it...and the sound of that is right purty...but I've never found it quite so hard to understand more than scraps of her lyric as on this.

Now if I were a queen and a ruler of nations,
With diamonds and jewels profound
Well, I'd rather know that I had salvation
Than to know my reward
Would be Satan's jewel crown

I've worm it so long but God for my
Soul has reached down
His love set me free
He made me His own, and helped me cast off
Satan's jewel crown

Oh, the life that I live so sinful and needless,
Drinkin' and runnin' around
All the things that I do for the love of the devil
I know my reward
Will be Satan's jewel crown

Satan's jewel crown
I've worn it so long
But God for my soul has reached down
His love set me free
He made me His own, and helped me cast off
Satan's jewel crown

Thanks, folks, for both the You Tube link and the lyrics.

Couple of tweaks to the lyrics posted:

Satan's Jeweled* Crown
(E L Eden)**

Now if I were a queen
and a ruler of nations,
With diamonds and jewels profound,
Well, I'd rather know
that I had salvation
Than to know my reward
Would be Satan's jeweled* crown.

Chorus:
Satan's jeweled crown,
I've worn it so long,
But God for my soul has reached down.
His love set me free,
He made me His own,
and helped me cast off
Satan's jeweled* crown.

Oh, this life that I live
so sinful and evil,***
Drinkin' and runnin' around,
All the things that I do
for the love of the devil,
I know my reward
Will be Satan's jeweled* crown.

(Chorus)

* I think the title (& hook line) is "Jeweled Crown," even though Emmylou doesn't clearly pronounce the "ed."

**The YouTube says it's "E L Edens song." DK if that means the composer is E L Edens or if whoever posted it just forgot the apostrophe in "Eden's."

*** "evil," not "needless"


I also changed the formatting to show which part is the chorus & to show more of how the lyrics correspond to musical phrases.

First of all. like many men my age I have been in love with EmmyLou Harris going back as long as I can remember... There was a time in the 70s when I was just doing country and country rock and not much more where I would go to sleep at night thinkin' that if I just got a few breaks here and there that I might one day open for her but...

... sems that my life has been more a Buddy Miller story... But nevermind that, I love Buddy, too... I started a thread on him here which dropped to the bottom like a stone...

But a couple true stories...

(No, before them, thanks to old'ster for puttin' up "Satan's Jeweled Crown" and Wes fir all the great Buddy MIller stuff... Especially like that "untitled" one and the one with Shawn, Patti and EmmyLou on percusssion and backup vocals... Patti is another oo my secret loves... Her voice is so smokey... Lot like Julie's...)

First true story: Ya'll may or may not know that I do this one man band (OMB) thing which requires me to play drums with my feet while playing various stringed instruments up top... Well, even though I do primarially blues there are times when I practice where I just wnat to work on the drums and I have found that playin' with a Buddy Miller CD gives me quite a workout 'cause his arrangements are so varied... I love Buddy Miller's stuff... Best non-Steve Earle songwriter out there...

Second true story: I played "Satan's Jeweled Crown" for years and years before kinda movin' more into blues and I remeber going to my 1st Getaway and thought that I needed to attend as many workshops as I could... Even early Sunday morning... Joe Offer had a gospel workshop going and so I went and as the song circle got closer to me I was swaetin' bullets 'cause veryone was doing these gosple songs that seemed everyone else knew (but me) and the only song that I had that was remotely gospel was this song so I did it... Yeah, kinda embarassin' 'cause it seemed that most of the folks either didn't know it or thought is wasn't goseplly 'nuff fir them but toward the end I heard Ken Shoutz (sp) come in... (Whew!!!)... Don't think I'll be doing that workshop again...

B~

Glad to correct the lyrics, Dude. But I agree with the frog prince that Emmylou's pronunciation when she sings can be hard to understand.

I agree with the frog prince that Emmylou's pronunciation when she sings can be hard to understand.

I read a quote from Ian Tyson, running a songwriters' workshop at one of the big Cowboy gatherings, about being careful with enunciation when you sang your songs, as they wouldn't go over at all well "...if you emmylou those lyrics..."

"I seem to be a verb."

Emmy cannot do a bad song, but I am biased beyond belief and freely admit it. Likewise Harry couldn't do a bad song either but also biased beyond belief.
Same with most all the catters i know and love
and your point is well taken, and many agree .. but my ears don't hear it .. and probably never could

Well, Genie, ya would have had to been at this workshop to understand... Heck, I figured that I could do a rowdy "Kepp Your Lamp Trimmed and Burning" which can be found in some older Baptist hymn book but that would have broken the mood so I figured that "Satan's Jeweled Crown" was, at least, a lot slower and figured that I might sneak thru with it???

Bottom line??? I know I did it fine but I don't think it went over all that well in that workshop...

I missed that one, Beaubear. Must have been one of the few of the gospel workshops I slept thru or skipped to go explore the area a bit with Annie.

I'd have joined in on the chorus - if it was in a low enough key!

Now, I gotta go take a listen to some of the links provided.

They were indeed, Dan.


I confess the 2007 recording on Youtube is not my favorite of her renditions of "Satan's Jeweled Crown," but it is still lovely.

Another of my favorites of her's is with Graham Parsons, "The Angels Rejoiced"

Now, let me ask a question that really shows my musical ignorance. I have never quite been sure which part is the melody and which is the harmony on the linked tune. (I sometimes have the same problem with Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Iron, and, very occasionally, with Robin and Linda Williams.)

Hi

Thanks Dan for posting this.

I have been an Emmy-Lou fan for as long as I can remember.
Over here in England in those days we didn't get to hear Emmy all that much.

But I was in love with her and her music and I got hold of as much of her stuff as I could.

Later on we were lucky in that Emmylou came over to the UK quite often, so I got to see her live. Also The BBC recorded many of her shows and we still see some of the best of her.

For me Emmy has been the best female country singer of all time and her duets with many other artists to me proves how good she really is.

My own favourite is Emmylou with Willie Nelson on Gulf Coast Highway.

Haven't put a link cos heck all you guys out there know it by heart.

Cheers

MikeL2
