there was a thread on song circle openers..
and I thought we might also discuss end songs.

"May the circle be unbroken" is one we often sing.

Here's one of mine that you could use.


There's Never a Good Time for Leaving

There's never a good time for leaving
There's no good time for goodbye
There's never a good time for leaving
it always makes somebody cry
There's never a good time for leaving

There's never a good time for going
Darling say you won't go
There's never a good time for going
I'll love you for ever I know
There's never a good time for going

Darling don't leave me
Oh tell me you'll stay
stay here beside me
for just one more day
There's never a good time for leaving

There's never a good time for leaving
There's no good time for goodbye
There's never a good time for leaving
it always makes somebody cry
There's never a good time for leaving

Oh! and we had a session on goodbye songs on Mudcat Radio one time. Perhaps Max could dig it up for us.

I remember that Bill Sables sang a great one.

Do you have to officially close it? I like it best when people dribble off and when you just have a few people left...some of the best songs come out then. mg

I sang Kipling's "Recessional" at the folk club last week, it being diamond jubilee time an' a' that. That closed the evening quite effectively.

"The Last Thing On My Mind" by Tom Paxton
"Early Morning Rain" by Gordon Lightfoot

Not 'zacly end o the eve songs at the pub, I s'pect. But parting, nonetheless.

And this one from Theodore Bikel and/or the Limelighters:
"Proschai" (I will find my words...)

And, of COURSE, "The Parting Glass"

Here it is:

Proshchay
(arranged, adapted, and translated by Theodore Bikel)

Proschay ty novaya derevnya
Proschay tsyganskaya lyubov
Proschay proschay podruga dorogaya
Bog znayet uvizhul'ya tebya

Proschay proschay podruga dorogaya
Ba, ba,ba, ba ya bog znayet uvizhul'ya tebya
Evi dovi dovi dovi
divi davi divi davi divi davi
davi divi da

Proshchay Moskva moya rodnaya
Proshchay Kremlyovski cupalla
Byt mozhet bolshe, ya bolshe nye usslyshu
Kremlyovski tva'yi kalakala.

Proshchay Kavkaz ty moi dalyoky
Proshchay gastinitsa ariant
Proshchay kinaginushka radnaya
Bog znayet uvizhu-l l'ya tehya.

Farewell, my girl,
Farewell, my Gypsy love.
Farewell, my dearest darling.
God knows if ever I'll see you again.

Farewell, my Moscow, my home,
Farewell, you cupolas of the Kremlin.
Alas, it may well be that never again
I shall hear the tinkling of your bells.

Farewell, faraway Caucasus,
Farewell, eastern inn—
Farewell, my native hamlet;
God knows if ever I'll see you again.

from Folksongs and Footnotes, Theodore Bikel, 1960


And the other version:

Proshchai
(Gene Raskin & Lou Gottlieb)

Proschai Ty Staraya Derevnya..Proschai!
[Proschay ty novaya derevnya
Proschay tsyganskaya lyubov]?????
Proschay proschay podruga dorogaya
Bog znayet uvizhul'ya tebya

Proschay proschay podruga dorogaya
Ba, ba,ba, ba ya bog znayet uvizhul'ya tebya
Proschay proschay podruga dorogaya
Ba, ba, ba, ba ya bog znayet uvizhul'ya tebya


Proschai...Dear friends it is time to leave you. (Proschai)
The time has come to say good bye.
Proshchai, proschai
No matter what the country or the land,
Proshchai is one word they always understand.

CHORUS
Proshchai, proshchai.
Adieu, arrivederci, adios, shalom, aloha, auf wiedersehen, so long.

Perhaps we'll meet in San Francisco, in Paris, Hong Kong, or New York.
The world is small and growing smaller every single day,
You'll meet tomorrow, the friends you leave today.
You'll see us all and ere the dust has settled in our tracks,
You'll turn around and you will see us coming back.

CHORUS

Proshchai, it's really tough to leave you, Proshchai,
We wish that you would come along.
Around this world we've lots of friends we know you'd like to know,
We'll sing together from Maine to Mexico.

CHORUS (Russian)
Proschay proschay podruga dorogaya
Ba, ba, ba, ba ya bog znayet uvizhul'ya tebya


Proschai...We're getting sentimental.
So here's to when we meet again.
For auld lang syne, we'll sing a little song or two or three,
And drink a toast to our global jamboree.

CHORUS (Russian)
Proschay proschay podruga dorogaya
Ba, ba, ba, ba ya bog znayet uvizhul'ya tebya
CHORUS (English)
CHORUS (Russian)


transcribed by ear from The Limeliters CD, Tonight: In Person

"There's Never a Good Time for Leaving" Looks like a lovely song Bert, is there anywhere we can hear the tune?

This one works well for a closer:

"Those Were The Days" (not the one sung by Edith and Archie on "All In The Family").

That is probably something to do with your browser set up Bugsy. The sound file is on the server in three different formats.

If you send me a PM with your email and the format the you need I will send you a copy.

Thanks Bugsy. I think that the problem is that I upgraded my website to HTML5 and some browsers haven't caught up with that yet.
