Good evening all,
long ago that I've been on the forum. just wondering if anyone could help me...I am looking for a German cover version of "Misty on the water" by Allan Taylor. German title is "Nebel über'm Wassr" by Wanderfalk. This group seems to be long forgotten and gone. My tape also of this great song. Does anyone can provide me with the German lyrics and / or MP3 please ? Does anyone remember the group / song ?? Greetings Chris

I found a very nice recording of the English version of the song, recorded by John Ravenscroft:

The lyrics haven't been posted here, so I'll work up a transcription, and keep looking for a German version.

MISTY ON THE WATER
(Allan Taylor)

You were misty on the water,
You were foggy on the dawn.
When I tried to follow after,
I looked and found you gone.

I looked and found you gone,
[Oh,] Where could you be?
['Cause] When it's misty on the water,
It's hard to see.

Lookin' for a rainbow,
From the cleaning (?) shower of rain,
Rainfall makes the waters flow,
You sailed away again.

You sailed away again,
[Oh,] Where could you be?
['Cause] When it's misty on the water,
It's hard to see.

Well, if you need a harbor,
To shelter from the wind,
There's no need to look further,
Come back and sail again.

Come back and sail again.
And sail with me.
['Cause] When it's misty on the water,
It's hard to see.

You were misty on the water,
You were foggy on the dawn.
When I tried to follow after,
I looked and found you gone.

I looked and found you gone,
[Oh,] Where could you be?
['Cause] When it's misty on the water,
It's hard to see.


Transcribed from a recording by John Ravenscroft.
This page (click) has a link to a brief clip of Allan Taylor singing the song.
...and another recording by another performer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGe6KMGycgw
No luck so far on the German version. I can't find a recording of it anywhere. I found an interesting album that Allan Taylor did with Hannes Wader, but it didn't have this song. WanderFalk has a YouTube channel but I didn't find this song there.

I hadn't heard of Wanderfalk until now and online information is sparse. I found two eBay auctions: their album "Mir sin noch lang nit över Schmitz Backes" (a dialect phrase meaning "It's still a long way until we're safe") from around 1980, and a 1981 anthology of groups from Bergisches Land - a region in Nordrhein Westfalen - titled "We kumm ich denn zor Pooz erenn?" ("How can I enter through the door?"). Both albums do not have "Nebel überm Wasser" on it, though.

Main members of Wanderfalk were Sabine and Norbert Hanewinkel who later were part of Saltarello, a band playing medieval music.

Chris, might I suggest that you contact Allan Taylor directly and ask for the lyrics? You'll find contact information at this page. If you get lyrics, please post them here.
Thanks.

If someone liked the song enough,they may have changed it from dialect to standard German. Could it be this?

No. Misty on the Water is about loss and departure, this Nebel auf dem Wasser reminisces about a nice holiday weekend.
