Subject: Song Chain
From: John MacKenzie
Date: 08 Jan 12 - 04:26 PM

The idea of this thread is the same as the word association game. One song should link to the next, by a name or a writer. Or some other srong link.

This is my starter, easy because there are a few songs which mention Nancy.

TOO CLOSE TO THE WIND

Farewell to you, my faithful Nancy
And a thousand times adieu;
For the constable comes up from Brackley Market
And a hundred volunteers too.
No more will we hide in the forest
For fear they might run us to ground
For the wild sea, we'd sailed upon it
Too close to the wind.

For twenty years, we have roved the highways
Of Northamptonshire.
From Daventry* down to the southern byways
We robbed both the rich and the poor.
For ofttimes our families were starving
And the highway it kept them alive,
So the wild sea, we sailed upon it
Too close to the wind.

Tonight I lie in a darkened dungeon
Condemned on the gallows to die,
While the man who gave us away is only
Bound for Australia.
No man could be found to defend us
Naught but abuse came our way,
For the wild sea, we'd sailed upon it
Too close to the wind.

The clouds they rise over Northampton market,
And the crowds pour into the town,
And the people will throng in the streets until sunset,
'Til the hangman cuts us down.
And fifty children of Culworth
Their fathers are taken away,
For the wild sea they sailed upon it
Too close to the wind.

I'd live and die with Nancy,

Oh the thing that first set me heart in a flutter
Was her Balmporal boots as she cruised the gutter

From An Australian Folksong a Day
Sign-On Day (Trad.)

It's sign-on day at the Dance Palais
And we're down to a quid or two
But we'll cut a quick ton if you give us the run
And we'll see the season through

Chorus:
You can have Maria,
Sophia and Madelaine,
But we'll take the sugar
That comes from sugarcane

We've cut down on the rivers
And up at Mossman too,
But give us the cane with the Herbert strain
And we'll see the season through

The ganger is a gun, me boys,
The cook can make a stew,
If he drops the cane inspector in,
We'll see the season through

Our hands are raw, but two bob more
Will make them seem like new,
If we get enough pay we'll cut all day
'Til we see the season through

There's grog of sorts in other parts,
But Cairns has got the brew
That we'll drink and drink and drink and drink
When we've seen the season through

From Ron Edwards Great Australian Folk Songs. "Learnt from Bill Oliver, Redlynch, North Queensland, 1960. The song refers to signing on for work on the cane-fields near Cairns. Signing-on would often take place at a local hall, in this case The Grand Palais.

Egloshayle Ringers because it is another of the Cornish Bell ringing Songs. Egloshayle is just off the Bodmin road on the way in to Wadebridge. The church is on the right and the ringers are buried in the church yard.
When I first moved in to Callington [of the previous song] I went on a tour of the town which ended up in St Mary's church. The guide explained there was a lost song about the bell ringing competition held for Queen Victoria's diamond Jubilee but no one knew what had happened to it. So, I stood in the bell tower and sang it!


Come all you jolly ringers and listen to my tale,
I'll tell you of five ringers bold that lived in Egloshayle.
By ring or ray, by night and day, none with them could compare
The fame of these five ringers bold was a true delight to hear.

Chorus (after each verse):
Lanlivery men, St. Tudy men, St. Mabyn and St. Kew,
But these five boys from Egloshayle could all the rest out-do.
There was Craddock the cordwainer, he rang the treble bell.
John Ellery was the second man and few could him excel.
The third was Pollard the carpenter, the fourth was Thomas Cleeve,
And Goodfellow the tenor man he rang them round so brave.

Now Craddock was the captain, he stepped along with his toe
And casting of his eye about he commanded them where to go.
They rang so brave with courage bold; it did their hearts revive
Sweet music then was quickly heard with a one, two, three, four, five.

They went down to Lanlivery and took away the prize,
They went up to St. Tudy and they've done the same likewise.
There's Stratton men, St. Mabyn men, St. Issey and St. Kew,
But these five boys from Egloshayle could all the rest out-do.

With this little core they ran so sure, no changes did they fear,
No man did ever lose his turn, 'twas a joy to see and hear.
And people all for miles around did tell o'er hill and vale
The tale of these five ringers bold that lived in Egloshayle.

Now to conclude this merry tale, the ringers' health I'll join.
Stand every man and pass the flask and drink their health in wine.
So here's to Craddock, Ellery, and here's to Thomas Cleeve,
To Pollard and to Goodfellow who rang them round so brave

(extended instrumental)        

    Whiskey whiskay Nancy whiskey
    Whiskey whiskay Nancy-o
    Whiskey whiskay Nancy whiskey
    Whiskey whiskay Nancy-o

I am a weaver, a Calton weaver.
I am a brash and a roving blade.
I got silver in my britches.
And I follow a roving trade

    Whiskey whiskay Nancy whiskey
    Whiskey whiskay Nancy-o
    Whiskey whiskay Nancy whiskey
    Whiskey whiskay Nancy-o

As I walked into Glasgow city.
Nancy Whiskey I did smell.
I walked in, sat down beside her.
Seven long years I loved her well.

    Whiskey whiskay Nancy whiskey
    Whiskey whiskay Nancy-o
    Whiskey whiskay Nancy whiskey
    Whiskey whiskay Nancy-o

The more I kissed her, the more I knew her.
The more I loved her, the more she smiled.
I forgot my mother's teaching,
Nancy soon had me beguiled.

    Whiskey whiskay Nancy whiskey
    Whiskey whiskay Nancy-o
    Whiskey whiskay Nancy whiskey
    Whiskey whiskay Nancy-o

Woke up early in the mornin',
lying half way off the bed.
I tried to rise but was not able.
Nancy damn near knocked me dead.

    Whiskey whiskay Nancy whiskey
    Whiskey whiskay Nancy-o
    Whiskey whiskay Nancy whiskey
    Whiskey whiskay Nancy-o

I'll gang back to the Calton weaving;
surely make those shuttles fly.
I'll make more at the Calton weaving
than ever I did at the roving way.

    Whiskey whiskay Nancy whiskey
    Whiskey whiskay Nancy-o
    Whiskey whiskay Nancy whiskey
    Whiskey whiskay Nancy-o

all ye weavers, ye Calton weavers,
all ye weavers where e're ye be.
Beware of Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey.
She'll ruin you she ruined me!

Don't know where you can find all the lyrics, but there's this, which ties into "derby:"

Where did you get that hat?
Where did you get that tile?
Isn't it the knobby one,
In just the proper style.
I should like to have one,
Just the same as that.
Where'ere I go, they shout, "Hello!
Where did you get that hat?"

From Bob Carlin's singing. I don't know that I ever got all the words, but think I must have. However, I can't access my home PC from work, so...

THE NIGHT THAT O'RAFFERTY'S PIG RAN AWAY.

O'Rafferty's pig was a wonderful animal,
Built like a battleship solid and stout,
His ignorance it would have disgraced any cannibal,
Impudence written all over his snout.
The night he got loose there was such a commotion,
That women were screaming and men turned pale,
They were running and jumping, colliding and bumping,
And everyone making a grab at his tail.

Then Mickey Malone the heavyweight champion,
Ran at the pig wit a big rolling pin,
He struck it a blow but caught Mrs.Mulroe,
Her bustle was shifted up under her chin.
Widow Malone fell through a shop window,
In pickles and jam and red herrings she lay,
She had salmon and skippers all over he knickers,
The night that O'Rafferty's pig ran away.

It ran into the police court and looked at each prisoner,
It swallowed the bible, said the judge infra dig,
And because of your actions I'll postpone the case
But the local solicitor said they must all try the pig.
The pig looked at Reilly the principle witness,
Then ran into the grocers next door to McCanns,
He rolled in the butter, then dashed in the gutter,
And that's how he kept slipping right out of their hands.

Fat Mrs. Doyle she ran like an elephant,
Puffing and blowing with Mrs.Maguire,
She fell on the ground and begorra the sound,
Was just like the burst of a pneumatic tyre.
Flanagan he then got the pig in a corner,
He jumped on his back and ran into a drain,
At twenty to seven his home was in heaven,
The night that O'Rafferty's pig ran away.

A bloodthirsty crowd led by old Denis Cassidy,
Chased it with vengeance from Derry to Cork,
And didn't he swear when the pig with audacity,
Jumped on a tram while he had to walk.
It ran through the legs of old Councillor Duffy,
A man of great standing and lofty ideas,
When they collided old Duffy backslided,
And down went the standing of twenty-five years.

Burke's wooden leg it was broken and shattered,
Her lay on his back shouting for Doctor Lamont,
Barney O'Toole says don't be a fool,
It's a hammer and saw and a joiner you want.
Then came the news that the pig had been captured,
The town had a thanksgiving supper they say,
And cabbage and bacon were lawfully taken,
The night that O'Rafferty's pig ran away.

On one summer summer's evening clear (repeat 1st 2 lines)
There I beheld a most beautiful damsel
Lamenting for her shepherd swain (bis)

2. The fairest evening that e'er I beheld thee
Evermore with the lad I adore
Wilt thou go fight the French and Spaniards
Wilt thou leave me thus my dear?

With pleasure for to rest myself and view the lambs
But I will take thee to yon green gardens
Where the pretty flowers grow

As doth the king, at every tide or sithe--

For kings have wars and broils to take in hand,
Where shepherds laugh and love upon the land.

If country loves such sweet desires gain,
What lady would not love a shepherd swain?

The Pegging Awl (A L Lloyd version)


As I was a-walking one morning in May
I met a young maid and her gown it was gay.
I step-ped up to her and back she did fall,
She want to be played with a long pegging awl.

I said, "Pretty fair maid, will you travel with me,
On to foreign countries, strange things for to see?
And I will protect you whate'er may befall
If you'll follow four love with the long pegging awl.

It was home to her parents she then went straightway
And unto her mother these words she did say:
"I'll follow my true love whate'er may befall,
I'll follow my love with his long pegging awl."

"Oh daughter, oh daughter, how can you say so?
For young men are false as you very well know;
They'll tell you fine things and the devil and all,
And leave you big-bellied with the long pegging awl."

"Oh mother, oh mother, now do not say so.
Before you were sixteen, you very well know,
There was father and mother and baby and all,
You followed my dad for his long pegging awl."

He loved her as, he loved his life
He often vowed, was his intention
To make 'er his lawful wedded wife

O, when his parents came to know this
They strove t' part them day an' night
Saying, Son, O Son, don't be so foolish
For she's to poor, to be your bride

VERSE 3
And when this lady, come to know this
She quick resolved, what she would do
She wondered forth an' left th city
This pleasant place, no more to view

VERSE 4
She wondered down beside th river
There she prepared herself, for death
Saying, here I am, a youth unmarried,
An' I must die, in dark destress

VERSE 5
Well, she pulled forth a silver dagger
She plunged it in, her snow white breast
O, first she reeled an' then she staggered
Saying, my true love I'm goin' to rest

VERSE 6
Her sweetheart begin, in th valley
He thought he heard, his love one's voice
He ran, he ran, like one destracted
Saying, my true love, I fear your lost

VERSE 7
Well, he picked up th bloody body
He turned it over in his arms
Sayin, neither man or God can save you
An' you must die in all your charms

VERSE 8
Well, he picked up th bloody dagger
He stabbed in thru his own true heart
Saying, let this be a lawful warnin'

By light of star and light of moon the night of twelve is coming soon
We shall to the orchard go, for mother Mary told us so.

With drums and guns we sing an shout to drive the king of Winter out
Frighten every spirit dark and wash away the devils mark.

Then we shall make the sign of 3 to consecrate the apple tree
Cider in the flowing bowl will free the spirit, warm the soul.

Then our wassail will light the flame and let the spirit rise again
From root and seed to bud and bloom, to raise the sap and bless the womb

For if the tree takes back his power he'll bear the blossom, bear the flower
Rich will every branch appear with apples for the coming year

And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be,
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

And when the broken hearted people living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be.
And tho' they may be parted, there is still a chance that they
will see.
There will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be,
There will be an answer, let it be.

And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light that shines
on me.
Shines until tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music, mother Mary sings to me
There will be no sorrow, let it be.
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be,
There will be no sorrow, let it be.

Boys and girls, come out to play,
The moon doth shine as bright as day.
Leave your supper, and leave your sleep,
And join your playfellows in the street.

Come with a whoop, and come with a call,
Come with a good will or come not at all.
Up the ladder and down the wall,
A penny loaf will serve us all.

this cross dressing makes me think of...


Martinmas Time

It fell out upon one Martinmas time
When snow lay on the border
There came a troop of soldiers here
To take up their winter quarters

And they road high and they rode north
And they rode o'er the border
And there they met with a nice, little girl
She was a farmer's daughter

Well, they made her swear a solemn oath
A salt tear in her eye
That she would come to the quarter gates
When no one would her spy

But she's gone to the barber's shop
And to the barber's shop went soon
She made them cut off her long, yellow hair
As short as any dragoon

And she's gone to the tailor's shop
And dressed in soldier's clothes
With two long pistols down by her side
A nice, little boy was she

And she's gone to the quarter gates
And loudly she does call
"There comes a troop of soldiers here
We must have lodgings all"

And the quartermaster, he comes down
He gives her half a crown
"Go find your lodgings in the town
Tonight there is no room"

So she moved closer to the gates
And louder she does call
"Room, room, you gentlemen
We must have lodgings all"

And the quartermaster, he comes down
He gives her eighteen pence
"Go find your lodgings in the town
Tonight here comes a wench"

So she took a pistol from her side
She blew it loud and shrill
"You're all very free with your eighteen pence
You're not for a girl at all"

And she took the garter from her knee
The ribbon from her hair
She tied them 'round the quarter gates
A token she'd been there

And when they found that it was her
They tried to have her taken
She slapped her spurs to her horse's side
She galloped home a maiden

Thou shalt turn Whore and I'll turn Thief,
Thou shall turn Whore and I'll turn Thief.

If thou canst rob, then I can steal,
And we'll eat Roast-meat every meal:
Aye we'll eat roast meats every day,
And throw our mouldy Crusts away,
And twice a day we will be drunk,
And then at night I'll kiss my Punk,
And then at night I'll kiss my Punk.

And when we both shall have the Pox,
We then shall want both Shirts and Smocks,
To shift each others mangy hide,
That is with Itch so pockifi'd;

And leave our old ones for a pledge,
And leave our old ones for a pledge.

Rushes = Moses

Moses Ri-Toora-Li-ay


Traditional



The policeman walked out, oh so proud on his beat
When a vision came to him of stars on his sleeve
"Promotion," he whispered "I'll try for today
So come with me Moses Ri-toora-li-ay"

"Come tell me your name" says the limb of the law
To the little fat man selling wares on the straw
"What's that sir? Me name sir? Why, 'tis there on display
And it's Moses Ri-toora-li-loora-li-ay"

The trial it came on and it lasted a week
One judge said German another said Greek
"Prove you're Irish" said the policeman "and beyond it say nay"
And we'll sit on it Moses Ri-toora-li-ay"

The prisoner stepped up there as stiff as a crutch
"Are you Irish or English or German or Dutch?"
"I'm a Jew sir, I'm a Jew sir, that came over to stay
And my name it is Moses Ri-toora-li-ay"

"We're two of a kind" said the judge to the Jew
You're a cousin of Briscoe and I am one too
This numbskull has blundered and for it will pay"
"Wisha, that's right" says Moses Ri-toora-li-ay

There's a garbage collector who works down our street
Who once was a policeman, the pride of his beat
And he moans all the night and he groans all the day
Singing "Moses Ri-toora-li-loora-li-ay"

Well, well... much to my surprise, this one's not in the DT already:

Oh there come a young man to my Daddy's door
My Daddy's door
My Daddy's door
There come a young man to my Daddy's door
Come seekin' me to woo

Chorus (between each verse):
And ah but he was a bonny young man
A brisk young man and a braw young man
Ah but he was a bonny young man
Come seekin' me to woo

I took him in, into the bring (kitchen)
I gave him bread & ale to drink
But ne'er a broon eye would he blink
Until his wain was foo

There lay a broon dog before the door
Before the door, before the door
There lay a broon dog before the door
And there he tripped & fell

Then out come the old man & high(sp?) did he shout
And out come the old wife and Lord, did she lout (sp?)
And all 12 neighbours gathered about
And there he lay, it's true

Then out come I with a sneer & a smile
And I said "Young man, you have us beguiled
You came here to woo, now you're all defiled
And we'll ha' no more o' you!"


Heard some people sing this at a local festival in the Detroit area when I was a teenager and fell in love with it; afraid I don't know anything else about it really, except they introduced it as a song about the "utter humiliation" of a young man who was apparently more interested in the food than the girl he was supposedly "wooing"...

What would be really interesting to me would be a song chain showing variants of
existing folk songs and their metamorphoses through the ages.

Example: The Ballad of Robert Kidd (Pirate)
Sam Hall.
What Wondrous Love is This (shape note hymn)

The stanzaic forms are similar indicating influences that changed the variants.

Variations for example of the Binorie Ballad, The Twa Sisters, The Wind and the Rain, etc.

Or The Three Ravens, Billy MacGee Macgaw, and possibly the melodic content for Johnny I Hardly Knew Ya'.

Every folk song in tradition has an antecedent either in music or in story content.
