Subject: Song search: 'Someone waits for me'
From: GUEST,Mrbisok@aol
Date: 17 Sep 00 - 11:39 AM

It's been months since I've visited Mudcat. Feels good to be looking at the threads again.

I want to play a song for my 9th grades, one I have on tape but I'm uncertain about a one word near the opening and I don't know the writer or singer. Probably the same female person. I recorded it off the radio in 1994:

"Someone waits for me"

Somewhere along the road someone waits for me
Beyond these present storm black ___________ waiting patiently.
No secrets held in an open _______________
A spirit that soars over mountains,
Somewhere along the road, someone waits for me.

I really would appreciate first of all the singer/songwriter. -- Thanks

Singer Maddy Prior
Author Rick Kemp
The song is called Somewhere Along The Road
I'm sure it's on the Forum but I can't get the search to work at the moment.
The verse you are looking for is:-

Somewhere along the road Someone waits for me
Beyond these present storms that moan
Waiting patiently.
No secrets held in an open heart
A spirit that soars over mountains,
Somewhere along the road, someone waits for me.
Hope this helps KJ

SOMEWHERE ALONG THE ROAD
(Rick Kemp)

Somewhere along the road
Someone waits for me
Beyond these present storms that blow
Waiting patiently
No secrets held in an open heart
A spirit that soars over mountains
Somewhere along the road
Someone waits for me

Somehow a guiding light
Always shows the way
To those who lose their way by night
Searching for the day
A day away from happiness
Tomorrow will bring a new sunrise
Somewhere along the road
Someone waits for me

Sometime when winds are still
Unexpectedly
Perhaps beyond this silent hill
A voice will call to me
Raise your eyes to see my world
Raise your voice and sing out
Somewhere along the road
Someone waits for me
Someone waits for me

This is how I do it. It's one of my favourites and has a lot of sentimental meaning for me so I am pleased someone else is going to do it too.


    Note from Joe Offer: These lyrics are exactly those I hear on the recording by Rick Kemp, John Kirkpatrick, and Ian Kellet. They are hereby awarded the Definitive Lyrics Award.

If the one you're looking for is NOT the one found in the clickys above, here is another. It's a GREAT song...I learned it from a not-too-old Doc Watson album. ALONG THE ROAD Written by Dan Fogelberg

Joy at the start, fear in the journey,
Joy in the coming home
A part of the heart gets lost in the learning
Somewhere along the road

Along the road your paths may wander
A pilgrim's faith may fade
But absence makes the heart grow fonder
When darkness hides the trail

INSTRU. BREAK

Cursing the quest, courting disaster,
Measureless nights for both
Moments of rest and glimpses of laughter
Are treasures along the road

When the road gets rough your steps may stumble
And your thoughts may start to stray
But through it all a heart held humble
Will level and light your way

Joy at the start, fear in the journey,
Joy in the coming home
A part of the heart is lost in the learning
Somewhere along the road
A part of the heart is lost in the learning
Somewhere along the road

This is how I used to play it. No idea what key it was in originally, but C worked for me; if you're fingerpicking you'll find most of the melody notes sit easily under the fingers, and there are some nice possibilities for runs in the bass notes. Use a capo to take it up if need be. If C's too high, try it in G (first line would be G D Em C)
Happy playing!

Great song - beautiful version of it by Geraldine MacGowan (lives in Doolin) from a wonderful CD with this song as the title; check her website for details. For the Am and F bits try also Am7 and Fmaj7 for added atmosphere.... good luck with the song. Geraldine's version of Richard Thompson's "Dimming of the Day" is as good as it gets, and there's a cracking version also of "Lark in the Morning" - great CD

I'm pretty sure the second line starts with the word "Someone" instead of "Somebody" -- and it scans better that way, too.

(Listening to the Geraldine McGowan clip confirms what I remember from hearing Maddy Prior sing it.)

By the way, it sounds as though it's written about the afterlife, but I believe Rick Kemp wrote it for Maddy while he was waiting (and worrying) for her to arrive home from a car trip through a bad storm. So "somewhere along the road" was actually home, and "someone" was hubby.

This is a most beautiful song and I have been fortunate to hear this song on many occasions by local singers in Lincolnshire.

Lucy Wright & Paul Young did a lovely version of this and I don't think it was ever recorded.

Likewise Jane Kitchen also did an equally lovely version of it and started to do a duo version of it with John Blanks (or is my memory failing me). Again to my knowledge never recorded onto CD.

When they sung this song, I could never join in as I was always choked up becuase of the sheer beauty of it.

C   G/B    Am Am/G F    (I play an E bass note then back to F)
Somewhere along the   road

The Am/G may well be a B bass note on the 5th string and a D on the B string just moving down between the Am and the F but it's from memory of the song so may be wrong

Yes definitely Rick Kemp and not Tim Hart.
I'd always wondered if the song was about a specific event or loss, so I ventured to ask Maddy recently: her answer "Oh I think Rick was in a bit of a spiritual phase when he wrote it".
She did not relate it to anything specific. I have sung it at a funeral wake.
One of the loveliest cover versions is by Scottish group Sangsters, which is where I first heard the song.

I listened to a number of recordings, and it seems to me that Mrs. Duck has the lyrics that are closest to what's sung. I didn't hear a single recording with "somebody waits for me," but that's what most people have posted. I found a recording by Rick Kemp, John Kirkpatrick, and Ian Kellet. One would think those lyrics should be definitive....and those are almost exactly the lyrics on the Kemp/Kirkpatrick/Kellet recording.
I think Maddy Prior departs in one place and sings "Raise your eyes and see my world," but I might be hearing her wrong. Whatever the case, I like the Maddy Prior and the Silly Sisters recordings best. Who's singing lead on the Silly Sisters recording?

I've mentioned this above, but to add greater detail:

The song origin story that I heard (from Maddy in concert in San Francisco) was that Rick wrote it for her to distract himself from worry as he waited for her to arrive from a gig late one stormy night. The idea, I understood, was that he wanted the knowledge that he (Rick) was waiting for her at home to be a talisman for her as she navigated the dangerous country roads.

That could have been just a stage story, of course, and yet I rather like seeing the song as more connected with this world and not so much the next.

Cathie Ryan is also on YouTube (She also sings "someone")

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqQ3cF5K22Q&feature=related

There are a couple of other versions on YouTube. All sing "Someone", so why do people persist in putting "Somebody" when they post the lyrics. Apart from anything else, "Someone" scans better.

A terrific song, that is open enough in its meaning to allow people to read their own interpretations into it, and get a lot out.

I cannot imagine why someone would be changed to somebody, which truly doesn't scan, though of course you can force it. Probably a transcription error originally, then perpetuated through performance (the folk process, as some would style it)

Thanks to Skipy for the u-tube lead (which works better if spelled Nutbeem, btw) a brave performance which I remember seeing on the box at the time. The reminder was worth it.

Like Joe, I like the recording on No More to the Dance the best of the bunch I have heard, but there seem to be several more to hear.
