I am looking for words to the fiddle tune "Home with the girls in the morning" I did search both the forum and digitrad, and I don't think these are the right tune. I can't imagine the one I have in mind is a Bob Wills/Tommy Duncan tune. This one is in Dm. with a DM change in the B part on the repeat. Thanks

I have an old LP by Bob Gibson on which he sings 'Dance, Boatman, Dance' credited to 'Emmet'
The song has a chorus that goes:-
Dance, boatman, dance. Dance, boatman, dance.
Dance all night 'til the broad daylight,
Go home with the gals in the morning.

Is that the one? If I remember rightly, Aaron Copland made an arrangemment of the same song.

Sorcha: I can't quite tell if you're looking for a Bob Wills song,... or the song that goes with the D minor. Some of the words to the latter are:

Had a dream the other night
thought I was in glory,
danced and sang the whole night through
went home with the girls in the morning

Come on grandpa sing your song
come on tell your story
tell us how you dance all night
Went home with the girls in the morning

There's another verse which my brain won't regurgitate at this hour. I believe these words were written by a member of the Deseret String Band of Salt Lake City, Utah, to an older, traditional fiddle tune.

Sorry, the second to the last line in my above post should read:
"Tell us how you danced all night"

The whole problem is that I just don't know.....I only know the fiddle tune in Dm, and somebody told me it had words. None of these seem to fit the tune I know. If i could understand "abc" I could post the stupid tune. I can "dum ditty" it....oh well, let it die.

I know one verse -

Mother can I go out to play
yes my darling daughter
hang your clothes on a bramble hedge and
don't go near the water

Can't remember the rest, it's driving me crazy!

Try searching in the DT under the following title:

Mother, May I Go Out to Swim (Bathing Song)

In the event you don't know how to search the DT, here's the text.


MOTHER, MAY I GO OUT TO SWIM (BATHING SONG)
(Lester Keith)

A sweet little peach from Manhattan Beach
Was strolling upon the sand,
And met a young sport from jolly Newport
Who thought she was perfectly grand
She murmured to him, "I'd go take a swim,
But I am engaged to be wed,
Though it's very warm, it's very bad form."
"Yours looks good to me," he said
She answered right away, "To Ma I used to say"

cho: Mother may I go out to swim,
Yes my darling daughter,
Hang your clothes on a hickory limb,
But don't go near the water.
You may look cute in your bathing suit,
But act just as you oughter,
Now and then you can flirt with the men,
But don't go near the water.

This dapper young swell then said to the belle,
"Please come out and dine with me,
It's quite impolite, but come out tonight,
I love you and you must agree,"
She answered in haste, "It's very bad taste
To dine with a stranger I'm told:"
But her taste was fine for champagne and wine
Cost him twenty dollars cold,
And afterwards he thought, Of what her mother taught

Sung by Julian Eltinge of Cohan & Harris' "Honey Boy" Minstrels

Copyright 1908. [With music. I suspect the songwriters Keith Lester,
Lester W. Keiffer, Lester Keith, and Lester W. Keith are the same
person, but who was he?. For the chorus see the Opie's Oxford
Dictionary of Nursery Rhymes, among other places.

This line is definitely from Boatmans Dance. We include it regularly as part of our repetoire and its a great Chorus son ((Its nearly all chorus) I have all the words if needed

Les B's verses above are similar to what we would sing for occasional vocal breaks in a contradance.

"The Boatmen Dance" shares the line but is a totally different melody and structure.

The basic "Shady Grove" and "Get Along Home Cindy" verses work fine.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble
