CAMDEN TOWN (Gregson)

I remember when I met her
She had barely turned eighteen
Her hair was not quite auburn
And her eyes were not quite green
She was English as the coal dust
And Irish as the rain
And every man in Carter's Bar
Had put their love in vain
She was total imperfection
A queen without a crown
Like a fool I swore I'd win the heart
Of the prettiest girl in Camden Town

Her name was unpronounceable
Some Irish Northern tongue
But I loved the way she always smiled
When I got it wrong
She spoke a differnt language
Rolled out light her phrase
And every word was played out
To the music in her face
She was total imperfection
Queen without a crown
Like a fool I swore I'd win the heart
Of the prettiest girl in Camden Town

She worked at Houston's Station
Selling tickets and advice
The business men who asked her out
Never asked her twice
They could not understand why she
Refused to change her mind
Said "Good Lord now, Irish
Leave the past behind"
She was total imperfection
A queen without a crown
Like a fool I swore I'd win the heart
Of the prettiest girl in Camden Town

Once she let me lie with her
After years of holding down
She always said that love would spark
But friendship wasn't found
One night when sense deserted us
Madness ran our fates
She crept into my shaking arms
And rocked away my pain
She was total imperfection
A queen without a crown
Like a fool I knew I'd lost my heart
To the prettiest girl in Camden Town

Well sometimes I still see her
With her children in the park
Two by different fathers
How the years have left their mark
It seems she never married
God knows she had the chance
But her English blood would doubt inside
And her Irish blood would dance
She was total imperfection
A queen without a crown
Like a fool I still would give my heart
To the prettiest girl in Camden Town

Delightful as always Susan...I find it's better if you just enjoy the dumplings and try not to think about what's in them. Viola would be great. I love Low Lands of Holland on the Viola, sounds so warm.

Loved the song Dave. My granddad used to sing it to us kids. Lots of good memories.

I'm celebrating tonight. Smuggled in a bit of amaretto for my tea. Finally figured out the HTML garbage. More like Joe and MMario figured out how I work....but that's a different story.

So, I got a really great gift from a friend. Come in close Susan, this is right up your alley. Polar fleece socks. Who'd a thunk it? They are toasty as all get out. So I brought a pair for everyone. Tried finding them in Cleigh's size, but thought against it. We'd forever be picking fleece bits out of the leftovers. Gonna go sit in a warm spot and fire out a song for you all. Elle

Susan--how did you know? My favorite Chinese food AFTER Tso is fried rice (pork, chicken, or shrimp) and dumplings! The Golden Dragon in Jacksonville, NC makes the BEST dumplings, next to yours, of course! Do you think you could use this new Hearme thing? I'm really pumped about it, I'm going to try it out Sunday night, so if anyone's around, I'll be waiting to talk & sing & learn Gaelic! I can add a bit of guitar accompaniament to Anachie Gordon...let's go!

Well, I've brought some chinese take-out All of that talk about General Tso's Chicken got me inspired, and so after a day of vegetarian cooking, I went out and got pork fried rice and some great steamed dumplings. I have no idea what type of animal is in em, but they are great. I'm dressed in the penguin suit, and ready for a slow evening. I could probably play a bit of viola on Anachee with you if you think it'd fit.

How do I share a tune to a song if I am technophobic? Wanna call me and have me sing it over the phone??

Brava!!! (from a fair Ellen who loves your song) Yes, darlin' Suze, Cap'n Crunch. If he begs for anymore caffeine, tell him NO! Causes too much of the Number One(make it so).

Mbo, can't tell me on top of all of this, you're a trekkie too? Where do you find the time?

MMario, no more weeping over the elephant song. Did you know that elephants symbolize power and royalty? They are worshiped because they are the carriers of Indra, the king of Heaven. They are good luck! All that and a memory to boot.

Gotta go get some of the Thai before the possum walks all over it. Elle

Wow can that possum put away the Pad Thai, and Spaw does a pretty good job himself. Cap'n crunch??

I'll have a bit of earl grey and continue with that sone (which I wrote on the way back from the Grand Union on just such a night as is described in the ballad. Something like Rip Van Winkle and Thomas the Rhymer end up in northern New England.)

Young William rode across the fields to bonnie Ellen's farm
He sang a song to the bitter wind to keep his spirits warm
He met the folk upon the way, they thought him passing fair
They bade him join their company, nor could he deny them there.

They bore him on 'neath wheeling stars and unto a frozen vale
His voice did grow more fey and clear, his face more fair and pale
He sang and feasted among them all, forgetting his own hearth fire
And he's forgot his parents and fair Ellen, his heart's desire.

But when the morning it did come, he woke all on the road.
The folk, like frozen mist, were gone and once more he felt the cold.
And all the thoughts that had fled his mind returned with the morning sun
And swiftly o'er the frozen fields to Ellen's farm he did run.

But he has found no cozy home, nor eager lover there.
But frost as thick on the frozen beans, abandoned to nature's care.
For though it seemed but a single night all in that enchanted place,
Full twenty years had passed and gone as mortals count their days.

Winter moves across the land, a cold and a glorious king
The bitter wind his trumpeter makes oak and ash to sing.
A silent moon in a deep black sky, a single star beside
On such a night as this, my love, the winter folk do ride.

Welcome in, Caitrin and Mario. I'm sure we'll put you right back in action with tonight's music!

WELL! No piping tonight, I'm afraid. The reed went out on my chanter! I've just had my performance classical guitar out, and playing all those great old Renaissance pieces I used to play a couple years ago.

So when searching for pipe music, I found a recording of a pipe band doing Scotch On The Rocks and The Black Bear in the same set! Coincidence? I DON'T THINK SO!

Folks, I just want to tell you, "A'Ghrian" which is from Shaun Davey's new suite "The Pilgrim" (it's about St.Columcille) is one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard! The Gaelic singing, the chorus, the orchestra, the Highland pipes, the drums and bass sounding like the coda of ELO's "Shangri-La"...just pure musical BLISS!

Hmm...let me get my steel string...I think I'll play "The Green Autumn Stubble," one of most requested songs, which incidentally has a funny story that goes with it...

Dave, there is always good black (very strong) french roast coffee soomewhere within my reach. What I really should have is an espresso pot,but I make do with my little melior pot and way too much coffee.

Spaw, you take that possum out in the kitchen and I'll whip up a little pad thai, or mee krob, or some such thing. The little guy has been eating all of that stuff Cleetus and the Regs feed him. No wonder his bodily functions are out of whack (to say the least)

Tonight we are having one of those bitter (10 below?) nights with lots of stars. So I shall sing you all a song about the Winter Folk

Winter moves across the land a cold and a glorious king The bitter wind, his trumpeter, makes oak and ash to sing A crescent moon in a deep black sky, a single star beside On such a night as this, my love, the winter folk do ride

Their crystal forms are frosty fair, their raiment is of silver Their songs rise pure on the bitter air to make all mortals shiver and if you meet them along the road, the cold you will not mind. You will not fret, but soon forget your hearth and home behind.

Mbo - watch it with that kilt, you could do someone a mischief with a sporran: watch out for chapped legs in warm weather. If worn properly, there is nothing to absorb sweat as with trollies and trousers, so if you are very active and sweat a lot, you could end up with severe chaffing to the erm..... tops of the thighs.... just ask Micca about the Savlon incident.....

Ta Suze. Earl Grey for me. God love the black stuff. Shot of cream and dip your finger in the mug for sweetness. ;) Just made some oatmeal cookies that'll go great with it too. So sorry to hear about Kendall, just when you think you're set, they vamoose. I'm not one for gossip, but I heard it was Barbie... Maybe he'll get VERY seasick? I'm no voodoo queen, but karma is a pretty fair judge. Save some of that corn too, as soon as I can dig up a quilt, I'll be set for the night. C'mere and sit down a minute Dave, I'll share the blanket, and here's an icepack. No whining. I didn't even use the big needle, probably should have...for all the times you didn't inhale. You're telling me that you don't get a lung full of sea air three miles out and just grin? Or that when the Sprogs were just wee ones you didn't grab them after a bath and smell their hair until it hurt you? Then you deserve the big needle! Don't like the heat Mbo? I can take it either way myself, but this is the time of year I start dreaming about deep sea fishing someplace warm. Sun on my shoulders and wind in my face. Can hardly wait for the Mudcat beach party. It's scheduled right after the Mudcat Highland games, right? (Cleigh-bur tossing is my favorite! I'm going for the gold this year..) Ah, the tea is done. Rest my aching bones and wonder what ever made me think I could make a living wrestling cows...mind if I put my feet in yer lap Dave? Cheers all, Elle

So long as this lovely old gas range doesn't blow up and take all of my hair and eye lashes with it, I've got the tea situation under controll. It's rainy and nasty here tonight. I almost ran off with that Kendall, but he left without me. RATS! I'm making a large pot of popcorn as well. Next best thing to running off with a musician. Actually, since I'm married to one, it'd be like jumping from the frying pan into the fire, so I guess I'll just settle for finding a nice over-stuffed chair and munching popcorn and drinking tea. I've brought some nice jasmine, earl grey and constant comment (my grandmother Pearl's favorite) for black teas, and have some lovely apricot, rose hip and mint for the non caf drinkers. Oh, and there's lots of honey, even enough for Mr. Bear to just dig in.

No I haven't heard that song, and you more than likely deserved any beating you got from me. If not, you'll probably do something soon, so it's a pre-emptive strike on my part.

Catirin, so good to have you back! I'm thinking I'll take a spot too. No Austen I'm afraid, tonight it's Solzhenitsyn. I have to admire your dedication, and the love of a good story. Can't imagine reading in a room full of wee ones tho, I think I'd be too tempted to play!

Felt like Wyoming here today too. Blasted cold at the farm. And they have this goat that thinks I'm the coolest thing since cracked corn...follows me everywhere, and any time I lean down he chews on my hair. So it's a shampoo in the sink, and a pot of tea to warm my bones. Anyone got the kettle on yet?

Anybody know any Kent Lewis? Craving a Song of Wyoming. "Weary and tired/ And I've done my day's riding/ Nightime is rolling my way/ Sky's all on fire/ And the light's slowly fading/ Peaceful and still ends the day/ Out on the trail/ There's a night bird a calling/ He's singing his one melody/ Up on the hill/ There's a coyote singing a song of Wyoming to me"

Welcome in Dan'l! Well Elle (hehe) there is a small part of me that is Scottish--my great-grandfather (on my father's side) claimed to be of "The Duke's Mix", a combination of Irish, Scottish and Welsh. My real background is lots of Italian, lots of German, and a little English. The red hair comes from my father's side, and with a last name like Richards, people think I'm of Scottish or Irish descent (Richards is actually a Ellis Island change of an old German name). It certainly feels like it sometimes, because while I am greatly interested in my Italo/German heritage, I'm even more interested in Celtic (Irish/Scottish/Breton) stuff, which is only a fraction of my genetic soup. Music, art, folklore, I love it all. All my family knows I'm a Celtophile, and one aunt asked if I was so into it that I would wear a kilt. Too bloody right I would, wi'out a moment's hesitation! Infact, that self-portrait I did was originally going to be me in a Highland warrior costume, but as you can see, I ended up as a soldier in Napoleon's Army. (Yet another interest!) Hey, let's do "The Road to the Isles"!

'Morning folks! Thanks for the DigTrad info Joe. I'll have to work on that, just a matter of figuring out the damnable computer. Danlbear, you can come in, I'll protect you! Of course, it would require me getting my fanny out of the hammock, but everyone needs a mission in life....MMario, I'm keeping you as my techno-god, laying flowers at your feet. ;) Mbo, got one for you, passed along by a friend and gave me a laugh. Difference between a bagpiper and the Rolling Stones? One is "Hey you, get off my cloud" and the other is "Hey McCloud, get off my ewe" I've gotta quit inhaling in the lab!!!!

I'm in the front yard, and every time I step on the porch, someone throws a vegetable at me.

Joe! nice to see you around again. And thanks for reminding me of that song....brings back summer evenings at the village sing-a-longs down by the lake...
Jenellen - techno-god I ain't - but willing to pass on what info I have and know.

guess I'm going to drop a quarter in the binocular telescope over there and spy on the schooner...(Does anyone else remember those at "scenic outlooks"?

Say, you guys, there are some great songs here. I tried to clean up the HTML a bit and add <br> line breaks where I could. Whenever you post song lyrics at the Mudcat, it's a good idea to put them in the standard Digital Tradition format, so Dick and Susan can harvest them for the database if they want to. In the Standard Format, the title of the song appears in ALL CAPS, and the name of the songwriter appears on the next line (in parentheses). If you have any other information about the song, it's always helpful to include that. If you're posting lyrics in a thread like this one that includes the lyrics to many songs, it's a good idea to change the "subject" box information so that the "subject includes the song title. Correct format for the "subject" box when adding lyrics is: ADD: and then the song title. If you have the song title in the 'subject" box, people can find the song by doing a subject search.
Guess I'll sit here by the fire and listen to you sing a few more. Here's one for you that I sang at camp last week: Long, Long Ago (click).

G'nite Dave. Hammock fresh as a daisy. Glad someone was feeling domestic....when I get my snoot in the books again, it's hard to get the inspiration to do laundry. Only thing that'll put a gal to sleep faster than anesthesia is reading about it! Laughing out loud about the Schooner Mudcat folks...did you ever hear "Jeremy Browne and Jeanie Teale"...I love it. (He had faeires in his yaw-boat, and there was't a thing in the lovin' world he could do about it.) MMario, you seem to be quite the techno-god. Thanks for all the input. I'm slowly but surely figuring this one out....Mbo, lovely as always. Believe it or not, that was a piper joke I hadn't heard, and I thought I'd heard them all. I'm sure it's just the droning that makes it seem that way...;) Reid-Heidit? You don't have any of the Scotch in you now do ya? Gonna crawl into the warm spot Dave left in the hammock (Ta Salty) and try and learn a new song before the weekend. Sweet dreams all, Elle

Mbo - if you get miditxt program then you con convert midi to text for posting or e-mailing. it also creates an abc. it does do only one channel, but gives melody line at least. follow the links from any of the red miditxt files in a thread....(it also allows you to change that red text back to a midi)

Here's a good pipe joke: What does a bagpipe player and a tornado have in common? They both will lift you up, spin you around, and totally BLOW YOU AWAY!!! A funny thing about the song, the bristly besom-bearded reid-heidit duke looks a lot like me--only I call it "the artist look"! BTW I don't have long bony legs(!), but do occasionally engage in a Ghillie-Callum every now and then. Hech mon!
