Here's my list of songs that were performed, in order, at the Singaround on 30 November / 1 December 2020. I came in a little late, so I missed a few at the beginning. I'm not at all sure I got the right title (is fada liom uaim I) for a song Martin Ryan sang. Ed Silberman sang a short song which I took down as Drink Canada Dry, but I'm not at all sure that's right. David Allan Coe recorded a song by that name, but I think it was a longer song than what Ed sang. I'm not sure whether Tell Me I'm Wrong is the name of the song Mel Barrett sang about a party he didn't like, so I've included some alternate possibilities. I totally missed the title of Hazel Richings' (first) song. I didn't get titles for Laura Martin's short Gaelic and Bulgarian songs. Corrections, additions, and random wisecracks all welcome. Here's what I have:

Carol for Twelfth Day
Senor Don Gato
The Clouds are Gwine to Roll Away

Got sucked into a John Wayne marathon... Remember the big staged saloon fight between Kirk Douglas and John Wayne in War Wagon? Anyway the piano player is frantically plinking to keep the crowd happy and *what* he was plinking, I noticed, was ...

...The Clouds Gwine Roll Away, which I had just sung!

I was #3, and this is how things started:
Joe Offer - On A Monday
Pelagie - Deja Vu (poem)
Me - Homeless Wassail

after that you missed Monique and Waddon Pete, then possibly only one or two more before you got in.

I'm sure someone else will be able to fill in your gaps each week if you're late to the party.

Cheers!

Thanks for the information! Noreen was #1, didn't she sing? Wasn't there a Jody at #4? I did include Waddon Pete, he was #8 (there was no #7) and he sang the Sussex Drinking Song.

I think #4 had disappeared between Noreen and me because I was caught off-guard and didn't have the time to send Joe the link to the carol page before singing.

Yeah that was it, Joe was 00, Noreen would've been #1 of course, then Jody #4 had decided to listen not sing, which is why Monique was caught off-guard, that's right, it's coming back slowly....

Hi, Everyone - I've been having trouble with blind carbon copy, and I'm not sure you all got the email. Or maybe you got it twice. If a couple of people could let me know here that they got the email, I would feel better.


We have Solstice and Christmas and all sorts of celebrations. Let's celebrate them all and have a good time doing it.
The next Mudcat Worldwide Singaround is Monday December 21, at 8 PM London time. That's noon here in California, and 3 PM in New York, and early Tuesday in Australia and New Zealand. I had no idea what time it starts in Israel (Shlomo says it's 10 PM), but we have singers from there, too.
Come join us! We open doors half an hour before the scheduled time, sing for about 5 hours, and then chat until people are done chatting. All in all, it's a wonderful time. Some people just listen - that's OK, too. Hope you can come.


Link will be posted here a couple of hours before the singaround. If you'd like to be on the email list, contact me.

CAULD WINTER
Iain Ingram
Cauld Winter’s here again, and the days are short and dreary
Wi’ bitter winds an’ snaw, that aye chill the hearts o’ many
For some auld folk their plight’s a bare existence tae sustain
Wi’ scrimpin’ through necessity, and strugglin’ on their ain

Cauld Winter’s here again, aye severe an’ penetratin’
Nae quarter will it gie the hameless or forsaken
Nor pensioner who canny heat his hoose and eat an’ all
The frailest o’ society are aye the first tae fall

Cauld Winter’s here again, come are days when many suffer
In damp and draughty hames, on the road, doon in the gutter
A time when those wi’ troubled lives through hardship and despair
Need a helpin’ hand frae their fellow man tae greet the Spring once mair

Cauld Winter’s here again, ah but we’ve nae cause for girnin’
We’ve heat and comforts all, for it’s luxury we live in
Compared tae those o’ lesser means wi’ nae escape, nae favours free
Hinging oan tae life, prayin’ they’ll survive – or pey cauld Winter’s fee.

SUFFER THE CHILDREN
Eric Bogle

                Suffer the children to come unto me
                The man who said that died on Calvary
                And as we remember this day of His birth
                The children are suffering all over the Earth


From the African jungles to the hills of Vietnam
There are thin hungry children, black, yellow and brown
They’re starving to death on their millet and rice
And they don’t know Santa Claus, or Jesus Christ


                Suffer the children to come unto me
                The man who said that died on Calvary
                And as we remember this day of His birth
                The children are suffering all over the Earth


As you sit at your tables at this Christmastide
And you stuff the roast ham, and the turkey inside
Won’t you think of those children in lands far away
And the two thousand children who will die today?


                Suffer the children to come unto me
                The man who said that died on Calvary
                And as we remember this day of his birth
                The children are suffering all over the earth.

It's almost midnight, and I've just seen John McGee's request. Joe is correct; they are my own composition.

Tomorrow I'll start a new thread called Lyric Add: Clear was the Night and post the lyrics in it. What do you call it when an author disavows copyright? Common Cause? Copy Complex? Whatever it is, I'll put that notice on it.

I'm glad you are interested in the words.

Here's my list of songs/poems/readings that were performed, in order, at the Singaround on 21/22 December 2020. I didn't get a title for Storm's song – I've given it as "Here's Hoping" which was a repeated phrase in the song.

The painted veil
1
I’ve seen small children die of pain and hunger
Those little sticks of human misery
And in this day and age I often wonder
How long it takes to end such tragedy
For something is wrong when we can close our eyes
or turn and walk away
chorus:

Lets change with the times
our reasons and our rhythms
reviewing how we think by what we hear
to live out our days in many different ways
will we still be the same this time next year
2
I tremble when I think of Hiroshima
Support the cause for mindless wars to cease
Condemn the men of power and ambition
And all who’d threaten everlasting peace
For God only knows there s’ so much to be done
We’ve sins enough to bear

chorus:
3
Beware of fools and words of doubtful wisdom
The hawk who masquerades as gentle dove
The bigot who professes to be Christian
And murders in the name of God above
To look at this world beneath the painted veil
May break your heart and soul

chorus:
4
Someday we’ll hear the voice of understanding
Though many years may pass without a sound
When suffering throughout the world is ended
And bitter seeds are cast on stony ground
When frontiers are gone and we are all as one         
When no man stands alone

chorus:   

Music and lyrics by Iain Ingram                                 

Song notes:
I wrote this song many years ago during the period known as
”The Cold War” .
While the threat of nuclear war has been greatly reduced,
the world in this day and age remains a dangerous place                                                                                                                                                          This makes the words of the song as relevant today
as they were when I first penned them

Freedom Come All Ye   
by Hamish Henderson

        
Roch the wind in the clear day’s dawin
Blaws the cloods heelster-gowdie ower the bay
But there’s mair than a roch wind blawin
Ower the great glen o the world the day.
It’s a thocht that wad gar oor rottens
Aa they rogues that ging gallus fresh and gay
Tak the road and seek ither loanins
Fer their ill ploys tae sport an play


Nae mair will the bonnie callants
Mairch tae war when oor braggarts crousely craw
Nor wee weans fae pit-heid an clachan
Mourn the ships sailin doon the Broomielaw
Broken families in lands we’ve herriet
Will curse Scotland the Brave nae mair, nae mair
Black and white yin till ither mairriet
Maks the vile barracks o their maisters bare


So come aa ye at hame wi Freedom
Never heed whit yon hoodie croaks fer doom
In yer hoose aa the bairns o Adam
Will find breid, barley bree an paintet room
When McLean meets wi his freens in Springburn
Aa they roses an geans will turn tae bloom
An a black boy fae oot Nyanga
Dings the fell gallows o the burghers doon

                                ___________________





FREEDOM COME A’ YE                 by         Hamish Henderson

During the early 1960s the Clyde and Dunoon were the scenes of many demonstrations against the arrival of Site 1, the US Navy’s nuclear base on the Holy Loch.

Hamish Henderson wrote what was to become one of his best known and most beautiful songs ‘Freedom Come A’ Ye, dedicating it    ‘for the Glasgow Peace Marchers, May 1960’
it is sung to Hamish’s adaptation of the pipe tune
‘The Bloody Fields of Flanders’. by Dunoon born Pipe Major John (Jock) McLellan DCM
The words are in Scots, yet the meaning is clear to all, and the song endures
now the ‘Roch wind’ is depicted as sweeping away oppression and war over the whole world.
