I'd like to hear from all the newbies--at least the ones since last May! What do YOU think the best (most beautiful, inspiring, heart-thumping, sad, etc) lyric lines from songs are? LET THE PEOPLE SPEAK!!

If it's only lyrics, Earth Wind and Fire's "I'll write a song for you" is a great tune. "Spirt" by the same band is also a great lyrical tune. Maybe "Bleeker Street" by Simon and Garfunkel.

It's hard for me to say what song would be my favorte.

As for traditional, John Jackson's "Boats up the River" would probably be it.

Almost anything done by Brownie McGhee is a favorte of mine. Especially when he did "Midnight Special" with Sonny Terry.

There is a line in The West Rutland Marble Bawn that I like...
"The sound of his sledge on an iron wedge, like a shot when the trigger is drawn."

And then there's Woody Guthrie's...
"In the misty crystal glitter of that wild and windward spray."

When First I Came To Caledonia has a lovely image...
"If I had pens from Pennsylvania
And I had paper of snowy white
And I had ink from a rosy morning
A true love letter to you I'd write."

Many years ago, Patrick Sky remarked to me about
The Green Linnet that it was the only song in his experience thaat starts with the word "curiosity."
"Curiosity drove a young native of Erin
For to view the gay banks of the Nile."

I'll sort of make a challenge of it. I first heard the on its own in the course of normal conversation with Martin Carthy, although I don't know that he ever put the song on record. I sing it to myself - I've never been cruel enough to sing it in public (Carthy or any good ballad singer could get away with it but that's different.) It's a good song & the longest I know. I actually first started learning the song in 1960 from Ewan MacColl's _English & Scottish Popular Ballad_ series but it took 25 years. About 2 verses per year.

I don't know that it's my favorite line anywhere but it certainly says something on its own and says more about ballodic use of language.

Sorry to run on. Nostalgia.

Oh so many!

One that always moves me is a line from 'She Moves Through the Fair.' which goes...

"She's gone her way homeward with one star awake. Like a swan in the evening moves over the lake."

Don't know why but it gives me a really beautiful tingle in the heart.

One that amazes me with it's audacity and the fact that it became popular is from a Guns 'n' Roses song ( and I use that nomenclature advisedly).

"....I used to love her, but I had to kill her, now she's buried in ma bayck yaarrrddd." Sheesh! Who gets off on that crap?

Show us the length of your cock

Are you hung like a beaver, or hung like a bear?

Let us check the weight of your rocks

So we can have a standard by which to compare.

You men! Don't worry if it's small or bent or slender

The personality is as important as the member!

So drop your trousers, and make the news,

And don't judge, lest we judge you!

I think the name of the song is Terranova High School. It was recorded by Bright Morning Star. I can't remember the author's name right now, but I put it into the Funny Song thread we had a while back, so it's there.

If anyone really wants to know, "Show Us the Length" was written by Bob Bossin and/or Marie-Lynn Hammond (the latter I think) and recorded first by their (Canadian) band Stringband. And it's not their best, or necessarily even funniest, song.

But personally I'm partial to our very own Aine's:

And though London may be quaint
Going back I never ain't
I'm as Irish as a Texas girl can be!

"When Bob Ford fired the ball that pulled Jesse from the wall . . . " from the ballad about Jesse James.

"The fall don't hurt, honey--it's when you land." from 'Scamp' by Freakwater.

[NOT FOLK but good anyway] "If I only had a dollar for every song I've sung, every time I had to play while people sat there drunk . . . " from 'Lodi' by CCR.

All of the Red Clay Ramblers' "Hot Buttered Rum". One of the only love songs I actually like.

Most of the Cowboy Junkies' "Powderfinger". I have no idea what the literal situation of that song is, but the emotions are wonderful.
