Subject: Lyr Add: THE SHORTEST STORY (Harry Chapin)
From: The Sandman
Date: 27 Apr 15 - 04:13 AM

in my opinion shortest story, is a memorable modern song with excellent lyrics. I heard it performed by Richard Grainger and thought it was acceptable material for a folk club, of course whether it is a folk song is debatable and possibly unimportant, any other people have modern songs that they like.


THE SHORTEST STORY
Written by Harry Chapin
As sung by Harry Chapin on "Greatest Stories Live" (1976)

I am born today; the sun burns a promise in my eye.
Mama strikes me and I draw a breath and cry.
Above me a cloud softly tumbles through the sky.
I am glad to be alive.

It is my seventh day; I taste the hunger and I cry.
My brother and sister cling to Mama's side.
She squeezes her breast, but it has nothing to provide.
Someone weeps; I fall asleep.

It is twenty days today; Mama does not hold me anymore.
I open my mouth but I am too weak to cry.
Above me a bird slowly crawls across the sky.
Why is there nothing now to do but die?

A really short song in this genre might be: "For sale, Baby shoes, Never worn," often attributed to Hemingway from the '20s, although variations appear in print as early as 1906.

Thanks for posting the link, Dick. The song has a much different effect when you hear it than when read on the page. Chapin infuses it with a life-affirming energy, and that lifts it above pathetic melodrama-though the chimes at the end are a little heavy--

As a child of a folk singer I grew up with some of the most gruesome and gory songs of any kid in my neighborhood. And we kids loved them all. The more traditional ones like Babes in the Wood (The Copper Family) and a Marais and Miranda song "Siembamba" that was purported to be a lullaby (no idea how old it is), and then there was the modern parody by Tom Lehrer - The Irish Ballad. Another favorite was the traditional The Cruel Mother (Greenwood Siding) (Ian and Sylvia, here) that was so heartbreaking. . .

What was the question?

When you say modern songs.. will 1972 do..???

here's a song that's memorable for me because it's one of the first 'grown up' songs
that deeply affected me when I was 13...

Steve-It is true that the song is a bit on the heavy side--it is, after all, a Harry Chapin song, and he was not a subtle songwriter. He was, however, a really influential activist on hunger related issues, and in addition founding Why Hunger/The World Hunger Year, and donating much of the money he earned to address hunger issues, he petitioned President Jimmy Carter to establish The Presidential Commission on World Hunger(he was one of the original members).

He worked as a filmmaker for a number of years, and was profoundly moved by things he had seen while working in Africa. It is quite likely that the song was written about something that he actually saw, because that was true of most of his songs.

Hmmmm, if 1970s onwards qualify as "modern" songs, that would include too many for me to list!

However, a very *personally memorable* song for me would be Tarja Turunen of the symphonic metal band "Nightwish" singing "Kuolema Tekee Taiteilijan" at the band's "End Of An Era" gig in Helsinki, n 2005:

Tarja: Kuolema Tekee Taiteilijan

I was at that gig. Everyone knew she was leaving the band after this tour, and they've never been the same since.

From: GUEST,Blandiver (Astray)
Date: 28 Apr 15 - 09:11 AM

Wow. That song truly sucks, Dick. (See what I did there?). You want a good song about a baby pondering metaphysical surrealities packed with cunning literary devices then try this. It's catchy too:

Apricot - Peter Blegvad / John Greaves

Very early I clearly realized the pleasures of seeing and song.
I learned to sing at an early year.
In the cot I recall my singing about a certain thing I saw.
I recall a song in the key of C concerning a thing seen just so.
I sang: "A-P-R-I-C-O-T abbreviates Attain Perfect Realization In The Cot."
I sang: "Cot contains certain shining irreducible contributions.
So does the charnel. So does the ferris wheel gondola."

Singing words devised for seeing "through not with eyes"
"I am not what I see"
"I is another"
Words devised to peep into the gone or coming were shunned by me,
I referred to a single moment.
Early in a clearing I recall my singing songs of my seeing things just so.
I sang: "A net, a gem at every node, in each all others shining show --
whole kit and kaboodle lit by an apricot's golden glow."

Subject: Lyr Add: DAMNED OLD PINEY MOUNTAINS (Sandy Paton)
From: Bill D
Date: 28 Apr 15 - 11:09 AM

This one: Damned Old Piney Mountains (It really sounds like 'old' when Craig sang it. I was amazed to hear it was his own. I miss that guy.)

Posted in the above thread by Catspaw:

Some years ago in the mountains of West Virginia, Craig Johnson met an old logger, once a fiddler, who explained why he could no longer make music. He had lost all four of the fingers on his left hand. Craig listened to his story, sang him the requested "sad old song," and then wrote this outstanding one. As long as we have people like Craig making songs like this (and the next one), we can be assured that what I like to call our Continuing tradition" will do exactly that—continue. Folk-Legacy is proud to act as Craig's publisher.
(Sandy Paton)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Well, sit down, buddy, we'll drink and smoke.
    Woman, don't you weep for me.
My hands can't fiddle and my heart's been broke.
    You damned old piney mountains.
I lost my fingers in the Galax mill.
    Buddy, sing a sad, old song.
My heart got broke in the yew-pine hills.
    Lord, and my time ain't long.

(Similarly:)

I started in to logging when I was in my prime,
Hitchin' up spruce to the big drag-line.
And the skidders started buckin' when the gears come down,
Makin' God's own thunder on the new-cul ground.

We was fightin' over nothin' and drinkin' too hard,
Ridin' up to camp on a flat-wheel car.
I was thirty years a-hangin' on the old chain brake.
I got laid off and paid off in '58.

Now the skidders got sold to the scrap-iron yard.
I moved down Virginia when the times got hard.
And I lost my fingers to the steel bandsaw.
My fiddle just hangs, untuned, on the wall.

Now the trees have growed up in the loggin' road
And wildflowers bloom where the big Shays blowed.
And there's nothin' left for me but to drink and smoke.
My hands can't fiddle and my heart's been broke.

From: Backwoodsman
Date: 28 Apr 15 - 11:27 AM

Stan Rogers' "Delivery Delayed" - superb:-

DELIVERY DELAYED
Composed by Stan Rogers | © Fogarty's Cove Music

How early is "beginning"?, from when is there a soul?
Do we discover living, or, somehow, are we told?
In sudden pain, in empty cold, in blinding light of day
We're given breath, and it takes our breath away

How cruel to be unformed fancy, the way in which we come
Over-whelmed by feeling and sudden loss of love
And what price dark confining pain, the hardest to forgive
When all at once, we're called upon to live

By a giant hand we're taken from the shelter of the womb
That dreaded first horizon, the endless empty room
Where communion is lost forever, when a heart first beats alone
Still, it remembers, no matter how its grown

We grow, but grow apart
We live, but more alone
The more to see, the more to see
To cry aloud that we are free
To hide our ancient fear of being alone

And how we live in darkness, embracing spiteful cold
Refusing any answers, for no man can be told
That delivery is delayed until at last we're made aware
And first reach for love, to find 'twas always there

There is a difference between dark, mystical and sinister songs, such as Babes In The Wood and The Cruel Mother, and the sick nonsense of the first song posted in this thread. I can take sadness, but on the whole I want my life affirmed and I don't want to be cast irredeemably into despondency and hopelessness, thank you.

I recall a chorus song doing the rounds in the folk clubs of yesteryear, where the moral in the last verse was 'don't stick spears in babies' heads'

Mind you, a banjo playing friend of mine always complains when I play before him for playing sad songs, so the last time, I found a Scottish song, (always a good idea) where the first line of the first verse has him dying and the rest of the song reiterating it...

Lots of songs fit that by the way..

My wife has a very demanding day job. Most evenings she suffers from what we term "nine o'clock narcolepsy". I have been known to tell her to use things like BBC iPlayer when she wakes after 45 minutes sleep and asks me to bring her up-to-date with a police procedural...
