Does anyone know where or what happened to Ian and Sylvia? Are they still singing together?

No, they have not really sung together for many years, having divorced in the mid 70s, but both are still active as separate acts. Check this site for lots of info on Ian Tyson. HTTP://www.nucleus.com/~cowboy/IanTyson.html

Sylvia Tyson sings as part of the group Quartette, as well as as a solo act. This page gives information about her. http://www.quartette.com/~quartett/

Multi-searches like Dogpile will no doubt turn up even more information on them.

2nd verse as far as I can tell...

(I'm guessing you don't want the chorus)

Fires of the potlatch all scattered in their ashes
(Wow -- no idea what this is...West Coast native talk?)
And our children cannot follow the old nor the new ways
And the poles of their fathers are rotting in the rain

I learned this in cultural anthropology in school. Wow, and I thought I would never need that stuff. Potlatch is a practice of some Indian tribes especially in the Pacific Northwest. Once a year they have a huge bonfire. Everyone in the tribe gathers and throws in the the most beautiful, valuable and treasured belongings they have amassed during the past year. The one who burns the most/best stuff wins. This idea was developed and refined by the Bavarian Motor Works, and promoted successfully, especially on the Upper West Side N.Y. It is STILL practised by the Yuppie Tribe there.

As a wee sidebar, has anyone else ever been a bit irritated by the lyrics to Katy Dear? "Let's ask your parents if we can get married. If they say no, we'll run away." The parents say no. Do the kids run off? No, they kill themselves. Huh?

The words I got from one of the Ian and Sylvia music books so they are accurate. The chords I believe are a whole tone below the recording.


C         G7       Am             G
Up on the hillside, policemen were climbing;
Am                   F                C             G
the ghosts called the night wind their fantasies to tell.
C            G7            Am            G
Dark on the snow were the blood drops a-dryin’;
Am                   F            C             G
slipped through cold fingers, the whiskey bottle fell.


C          F         C                   F
Klahowya, mother, I leave you with your white man;
D                      G             D                G
I curse their church that tells us that our fathers were wrong.
         C          G                Am          G
And I’ll hunt my own mowich, and I’ll drink my own whiskey,
         Am         F          C             G
and I’ll sing until morning the old-fashioned songs.

Fires of the potlatch are all scattered in their ashes;
Mesachie tamanawas - The Evil One’s remains.
And our children cannot follow the old nor the new ways,
and the poles of their fathers are rotting in the rain

Daylight came late over high coastal mountains;
the renegade stood watching with his rifle by his side.
Then he emptied his gun up into the pale, yellow sunrise,
and he ran down the hillside to the place where he died.



klahowya = hello, goodbye
mesachie = evil, malign
mowich = deer
potlatch = an annual regional gathering where stories and gifts are exchanged
tamanawas = spirit, sorcerer
