Subject: Looking for the name of a tune...
From: Eluned
Date: 07 Apr 00 - 01:54 PM

....this tune was written by one of the King Henrys, I think the eight, and was also used as the opening theme for a children's show in the 60's called "The Gentle Giant". The Lyrics start out, "As I went out one morning..." ('though I'm afraid many songs of that era start that way).

Any clues? I need the name to find the lyrics......

Subject: Lyr Add: EARLY ONE MORNING
From: Dave (the ancient mariner)
Date: 07 Apr 00 - 03:15 PM

The song is called: EARLY ONE MORNING. One of the first songs I learned to sing; and a favourite still. Yours, Aye. Dave

Here are the lyrics.

Early one morning, just as the sun was rising
I heard a maiden sing in the valley below
Oh, don't deceive me; oh, never leave me!
How could you use a poor maiden so?

Oh gay is the garland, and fresh are the roses,
I've cull'd from the garden to bind on thy brow.
Oh don't deceive me; oh, never leave me!
How could you use a poor maiden so?

Remember the vows that you made to your Mary,
Remember the bow'r where you vow'd to be true
Oh, don't deceive me; Oh, never leave me!
How could you use a poor maiden so?

Thus sang the poor maiden, her sorrows bewailing
Thus sang the poor maid in the valley below
Oh, don't deceive me; oh, never leave me!
How could you use a poor maiden so?

It was the Friendly Giant not the Gentle Giant. No wonder I was confused.

I believe that tune is from the 19th century and not by Henry the 8th. Supposedly he wrote Greensleeves although it was not uncommon to take credit for someone elses work.

Hey Friendly, whats for supper Fried Chicken, rusty. Petr.

re: the pretty maid deceiving the giant

not sure about any songs but there is a delightful poem by Wallace Stevens called "The Plot Against the Giant"

allow me:

First Girl
When this yokel comes maundering,
Whetting his hacker,
I shall run before him,
Diffusing the civilest odors
Out of geraniums and unsmelled flowers.
It will check him.

Second Girl
I shall run before him,
Arching cloths besprinkled with colors
As small as fish-eggs.
The threads
Will abash him.

Third Girl
Oh, la . . . le pauvre!
I shall run before him,
With a curious puffing.
He will bend his ear then.
I shall whisper
Heavenly labials in a world of gutturals.
It will undo him.

Please respond asap so my new grandson can finally fall asleep!

Welcome to Mudcat, bargro. People are much more likely to help you find a song if you start a new thread and and put some of the song words in the title. You do that by clicking on the words upper left that say "START A NEW THREAD". Use the Lyr.Req. prefix (if you can see how) and call the thread something like -- PP&M, I'll Walk In the Rain.
I'm sorry I don't know that one.
Blessings,
BArbara

BARGO-

This should be it- enjoy.

FOR BABY (For Bobbie)
(John Denver) Cherry Lane Music Co., Inc. -ASCAP

I'll walk in the rain by your side,
I'll cling to the warmth of your tiny hand.
I'll do anything to help you understand,
I'll love you more than anybody can.
And the wind will whisper your name to me,
Little birds will sing along in time,
The leaves will bow down when you walk by,
And morning bells will chime.
I'll be there when you're feeling down,
To kiss away the tears if you cry.
I'll share with you all the happiness I've found,
A reflection of the love in your eyes.
And I'll sing you the songs of the rainbow,
Whisper all the joy that is mine.
The leaves will bow down when you walk by,
And morning bells will chime.
{repeat verse 1}
The leaves will bow down when you walk by,
And morning bells will chime.

Yeah, hey, that song is by Henry J. Deutschendorf, Junior - and don't you forget it, Greg!!!
He became John Denver sometime after he wrote the song.
-Joe Offer-


But let that be a lesson for all you newcomers and visitors. Mudcatters are a bit foggy and easily confused. Please help them by posting lyrics requests in threads with specific titles.

John Denver and Henry J. Deutschendorf, Jr., are the same guy, Greg, just a different name. Don't know exactly when the name change took place - very late 60's, I think.

I was also vague about the lyrics (I should have made that clear in my thread-opener), so I didn't think a lyric search would do me any good; and as I hoped, the Mudcatters came through!
Thanks, guys!
Right about the Friendly Giant, but you have to admit it's been a looooong time! (if I can admit it, you can )
Again, thanks!
