"And with the wind hold conversation. It always has so much to tell;"

From 'Both Sides The Tweed' "What's the Spring breathing Jasmine and Rose"   I guess I love all the words of the song really :-

What's the spring-breathing jasmine and rose?.

What's the summer with all its gay train.

Or the splendour of autumn to those
,
Who've bartered their freedom for gain?
Chorus
Let the love of our land's sacred rights,

To the love of our people succeed
.
Let friendship and honour unite,

And flourish on both sides the Tweed.

No sweetness the senses can cheer,

Which corruption and bribery bind.

No brightness that gloom can e'er clear,

For honour's the sum of the mind
Chorus

Let virtue distinguish the brave,

Place riches in lowest degree.

Think them poorest who can be a slave
,
Them richest who dare to be free
Chorus

I remember my father was much struck by the song "Don't Fence Me In" [lyric Cole Porter & Robert Fletcher] when we heard Roy Rogers sing it in 1944 in 'Hollywood Canteen' (one of those 'composite' films much regarded at the time which really constituted a sort of divertissement of various artistes performing in some particular milieu, framed by somewhat feeble and jejune plots about people visiting the venues).

He [my father] would always say that he thought the lines "I will ride to the ridge where the West commences, Gaze upon the moon until I lose my senses" fit to rank with the most beautiful of poetry.

I like this one, from John Prine's Paradise

    Well sometimes we'd travel right down the Green River
    To the abandoned old prison down by Adrie hill.
    Where the air smelled like snakes, and we'd shoot with our pistols
    But empty pop bottles was all we would kill.

It inspired me to take a hike along the Green River in Kentucky. The river is truly green, and the air does smell like snakes. I was happy I didn't encounter any snakes.

From Corole King and the late Gerry Goffey's "Goin' back" and made famous by Dusty Springfield. Four brilliant lines (bolded) below:

I think I'm goin' back
To the things I learned so well in my youth,
I think I'm returning to
The days when I was young enough to know the truth

Now there are no games
To only pass the time
No more coloring books,
No Christmas bells to chime
But thinking young and growing older is no sin
And I can play the game of life to win


I can recall a time,
When I wasn't afraid to reach out to a friend
And now I think I've got
A lot more than a skipping rope to lift

Now there's more to do
Than watch my sailboat glide
Then everyday can be my magic carpet ride
And I can play hide and seek with my fears,
And live my life instead of counting my years


Let everyone debate the true reality,
I'd rather see the world the way it used to be
A little bit of freedom, all we're left
So catch me if you can
I'm goin' back


I am always amazed as I sing this beautiful song at those lines

I thought this was a neat lyric when I first heard it on a Lonnie Johnson & Elmer Snowdon record.

Lonnie Johnson (and many other early blues singers) sang:



I'm sittin' here wonderin' will a matchbox hold my clothes,

Just sittin' here wonderin' will a matchbox hold my clothes.

Well I ain't got so many, but I sure got a long way to go.



The idea, of course is that he has so few "clothes", not "matches", that they might even fit into a matchbox.

Carl Perkins (and other rockabilly singers) seem to have interpreted it as though the singer has a shortage of matches.

Which makes more sense?



Carl Perkins' Lyrics:



Well I'm sitting here wondering, will a matchbox hold my clothes
Yeah I'm sitting here wondering, will a matchbox hold my clothes
I ain't got no matches, but I got a long way to go


This makes less sense to me, but here's what the Beatles did with the lyrics.



Beatles' Lyrics:

I said I'm sitting here watching, matchbox hole in my clothes
I said I'm sitting here wondering, matchbox hole in my clothes
I ain't got no matches but I sure ot a long way to go

And as for Cosher Bailey, there is this glorious verse

There are lots of honey bees
and they swarm around the trees
The go into Llangollen
and the suck up all the pollen.

So of course you have to pronounce Llangollen correctly and rhyme pollen with it.

For those of you who don't know, ll in Welsh is pronounced like the ch in loch in Scottish or the kh in Arabic. There is no such sound in English, it sounds as though you are about to expectorate.

In Welsh the stress is on the penultimate syllable and in LLangollen the e is close to the English i as in fit.

Cosher Bill, I always thought that the "ll" in Welsh was more "chl", with the "ch" pronounced as you said above. In other words, isn't there an "l" sound after the sound that resembles an expectoration?
I will admit that I have not been in Llangollen since 1969, so my memory might be faulty.

But none of these, and nothing else, can touch the beauty

And it's Eastertime too
And your gravity fails
And negativity don't pull you through"

Leonard Cohen seems to be the top vote getter. I'd add:
"Oh the sisters of mercy, they are not departed or gone.

Oh I hope you run into them, you who've been travelling so long."
