Dave,

I believe you will find what you are looking for in the liner for the CD: This Train Still Runs; Artists: Holly Near and Ronnie Gilbert. It came out in 1996.

The title of the song I'm thinking of is: There Was Music In My Mother's House.

Yeah, it's a great song, and Holly Near and Ronnie Gilbert did a great job of it.

MUSIC IN MY MOTHER'S HOUSE
(© 1985, Stuart Stotts BMI)

There were windchimes in the window, bells inside the clock
An organ in the corner, tunes in the music box
We sang while we were cooking, or working in the yard
We sang although our lives were really hard
CHORUS:
There was music in my mother's house
There was music all around
There was music in my mother's house
And my heart still feels full with the sound
She taught us all piano, but my sister had the ear
She could play the harmony to any tune she'd hear
Now I don't claim much talent, but I've always loved to play
And I guess I will until my dying day.
    CHORUS

Those days come back so clearly, although I'm far away
She gave me the kind of gift I love to give away
And when my mother died, and she'd sung her last song
We sat in the living room, singing all night long

Singing la-la la, la-la
Singing the front porch songs
Singing the old torch songs
La-la, la-la
Singing the hymns to send her home.
    CHORUS

Just noticed a line is missing from the 3rd verse; should be:

Those days come back so clearly, although I'm far away
She gave me the kind of gift I love to give away
And when my mother died, and she'd sung her last song
We sat in the living room, singing all night long

Cheers,

YY
    Thanks, YY. Correction made.

bflat,

I read your response, which starts with "Dave," in the voice of HAL from 2001 a Space Odyssey. Weird. . .

Wonderful song. Here's a story:

Every season, as I'm preparing music for a new Animaterra concert, I invite members to request songs. One of my faithful "suggesters" had this on her list, so I posted it on the Animaterra Facebook page and got lots of positives.

Two days later, a member who is non-technology luddite also suggested this song, out of the blue.

So now I'm arranging it for women's chorus!

I might add that Stuart Stotts is very accessible and generous with this song!
