Subject: Its a Sad Situation (TracyNelson sang..)
From: JedMarum
Date: 17 Sep 99 - 02:33 PM

Tracy Nelson sang a song years ago on a 1970's vintage album with Mother Earth, a wonderful blues tune with a chorus that went like this;

It's a sad situation
not just because I'm so blue
It's a sad situation
'cause I'm still lovin' you"

Does anyone know anything about this song? Where did it come from? Who else has recorded it? Words, chords?

No, but it is on a CD that's been re-released -- actually TWO CDs of Tracy's Mother Earth recordings. I ordered mine off of Amazon.com...

If you don't get the words in a few days, I'll have the CD in the early part of next week and can get the words to you.

I'm eager to re-learn "Temptation Took Control of Me" and "Soul of Sadness." I used to know those songs like the back of my hand. "Soul of Sadness" got me through the divorce from my kids' dad -- very poignant memories attached to that one, I'll tell you.

Best, WyoWoman

Actually, she's sort of experiencing a revival now. I saw her on "Austin City Limits" with two other female singers whose names escape me now. This was not too long ago and let me tell you, she hasn't gotten any worse for the wear. She's another one of those singers who've inspired me (like Mary Travers, Ronnie Gilbert and Holly Near) to just plant my feet, throw back my head and SING!

I know she has a couple of new CDs out and she's been performing in the Bay Area all this time, apparently.

I'll have to look into one of her new CDs. I have recently discovered Ed Miller (I know a very different kind of music)and will be buying some of his stuff very soon. I'll look into Tracey at the same time. Thanks for the info.

I'm not familiar with his work. What kind of music is it? (Sorry if that's hopelessly uninformed, but ... well,)

Ed Miller is a transplanted Scot living in Austin. He sings a variety of trad and contemporary Celtic Folk. Great Stuff! He is one the stars from the Folk Legacy list of performers.

me too! And the Internet music sales have made this addiction so much easier to feed! Right after I posted my last message to you yesterday, I surfed off to Amazon and bought one Tracey Nelson CD, then over to Folk Legacy and purchase two Ed Miller. I need help!!!

Just as a point of info I believe Tracy is the daughter of the late Ricky Nelson. If it is the same one, she also has had a bout with lukemia a few years back and is in remission and doing quite well I understand. I wonder if this is the correct Tracy Nelson?? Winters Wages

I don't think so because I first heard her with Mother Earth back when my son was a baby and he's 27 now, so the timing isn't right. HOWEVER, I heard a young woman play piano with Willie Nelson a few years back in the Lloyd Noble Center in Norman, Okla., whose name was Tracy Nelson, not the same Tracy from the Bay ARea, and she very well might be the right age to be Ricky Nelson's kid.

Liam-- One-click shoppin' will be the death o' me. At least of my bank account. (Wait, wait. I feel a blues tune comin' on...
"Woke up this mornin'
Blue as blue could be
The mailman came up on my porch
Packages high as you could see
I don't remember orderin'nothin'
But these songs are mighty sweet
Lord, that one-click shoppin'
Gonna be the death of me ...

Thanks WW, I was not sure...the one I am thinking about would be quite young...in her thirties I would guess. She used to appear also in a tv weekly called "The Father Dowling Mystery Series"...as I get older it becomes a blurrr BG Regards Winters Wages

Liam -- absofreakinlootly you can put it to music. The meter is probably problematic, but feel free to shape to fit.

WintersWages -- Isn't it interesting that we now think someone in her thirties is "quite young..."? Seriously, I think there must be a cadre of creative Tracy Nelson's out there in the world. The name crops up all over the place and I don't even know if it's just two women!

Yes, I know. My own son doesn't know who Ricky Nelson was and he is 29...Im not that old. (at least I don't think so BG) When I try to explain some of the songs and their hx..no one is really interested it seems these days. I played in a band that used to play (in fact we recorded it) Spancill Hill. When I read some of the threads on it's hx (history) I can't do it without getting all choked up...Sometimes I think Im getting soft as years go by..Oh well..Im getting off my soap box now.

Hi everyone....

google brought me to you via my search to find Tracy Nelson chords and lyrics. My dad dug up his vinyl collection and introduced me to Mother Earth's "Bring Me Home". I fell in love with it, and Tracy. I'm a singer myself and want to cover "soul of sadness" and the one about the midnight sky. Anyone have ideas where I might find the music/lyrics for these songs? I can't believe Tracy isn't more represented on the web! Bring Me Home is one of the best things I've heard. Thanks a lot! ~karuna

SAD SITUATION was written by Clyde Pitts. It's been recorded by Larry Ballard, Delia Bell & Bill Grant, Kate Brislin & Katy Moffatt, Tracy Nelson, Open Road, and Vernon Oxford.

allmusic lists 14 original albums and 3 compilations/reissues by Tracy Nelson. Rounder Records has several of them still in print.

The album "Bring Me Home," by Mother Earth (the band of which Tracy Nelson was a member), originally issued as an LP in 1971, has recently been reissued on the Wounded Bird label, as CD #6431, 2005. It contains SOUL OF SADNESS, and what I assume is the other song Karuna mentioned, TONIGHT THE SKY'S ABOUT TO CRY.

Tracy Nelson the singer was born in Madison, Wisconsin in 1947.

Tracy Nelson the actress was born in Santa Monica, California in 1963. She is the daughter of Ricky Nelson, and sister of the twins Matthew and Gunnar Nelson who formed the band Nelson in the 1990s.

SAD SITUATION
Written by Clyde Pitts
As recorded by Tracy Nelson, 1969.

Well, I've known some sad situations before,
And I've faced a lot of temptations before.
Yes, I've known others like you with a heart made of stone,
And by now I guess I should be used to living alone.

CHORUS: It's a sad situation, not just because I'm so blue.
It's a sad situation, 'cause I'm still loving you.

I never thought I'd be feeling like this,
Living old mem'ries of your tender kiss.
You're not the first one that I thought my heart wanted so,
But you'll be the first one to take part of me when you go.
