Subject: Lyr Add: HIGHWAY OF SORROW (Bill Monroe)
From: Mark Clark
Date: 06 Dec 10 - 05:12 PM


Highway of Sorrow
Bill Monroe

I once had a darlin' wife, kind true and sweet,
Life was so bright and gay, everything complete,
But I fell for another who led my life astray,
Now I'll live in sorrow 'til my dyin' day.

    Refrain:
    Down the highway of sorrow I'm travelin' alone,
    I've lost all my true friends, I've lost a happy home,
    I'm headed for destruction, I'm on the wrong track,
    Down the highway of sorrow there's no turning back.

I went back to my darlin' and fell down on my knees,
I begged her with tear dimmed eyes to give my poor heart ease,
But she was hurt so deeply she could not forgive,
Now I'll live in sorrow as long as I live.

    (Refrain)


      - Mark

There's a very old country song called "Don't Rob Another Man's Castle." (Woman as a possession, ugh.) It ends with the line "I robbed another man's castle, now someone just stole her from me." I haven't tried to find the lyrics, but I've found just about every other song I've tried to find on the internet.

Unfortunately Mudcat doesn't have this indexed as Child, so you need to search on "Aboyne".

Also there are a number of mistakes in the transcription (it's also taken from June's singing) - not generally significant, but I may get round to posting the corrected version).

It's a slightly anglicised version of one of the Child texts, but includes some material not in any of the Child versions I checked (but I only looked at the main entry and not for any subsequent addenda).

The recording is "Ashes and Diamonds" which is still available. And this track includes wonderful guitar from Nic Jones ..

Enjoy . .

OK, ignore my earlier comment . . I'm getting Lisbon and The Earl of Aboyne confused (they are adjacent tracks on June Tabor's Ashes and Diamonds CD). And having transcribed the words for the this thread I then discover it's Child 235, so it's here anyway . .

Certainly fits the bill - have a look!

"We'll Sweep Out the Ashes" done by Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris (written by someone else, I think) is a good one, more perhaps about guilt than actual regret (same goes for "Dark End of the Street"). And Richard Thompson's "Keep Your Distance" is such a good song; more about making a commitment NOT to stray again by recognizing that one would still be tempted to do so and, therefore, avoiding the source of temptation.

You're right, there aren't many:

24 Hours from Tulsa.

From Clare to Here (well, it's a different kind of desertion maybe)

Down in the Sally Gardens (But that's more regrets rather than remorse.)

But that's all I can think of, and only one of them fits the bill, and that's by a long way the least of the songs.

I once wrote a song with the rather lengthy chorus:

So he lied through his teeth
and that's the living proof
that he loved her too much
to always tell the truth.
He loved her too much to never tell a lie
and that's the reason why at times
he used to look her in the eye:
"I'll swear once again, the way I always do,
I'd never tell a lie to you.
Would I ever tell a lie to you,
have I ever told a lie to you?"

But that's more an excuse song, as is "You always hurt the one you love."

Franke's "Hard Love" comes to mind, although not DIRECTLY "as asked for".

However, to meet the original requirement, there's the song June Tabor sings as "Lisbon" (NOT the song under that title in the database); from memory it starts:

The Earl of Arboyne to Lisbon is gone
And taken his nobles with him
Better he should have stayed at home
Or taken his lady with him

(I guess I may have that fourth line wrong); it's a really powerful song of foolish love and foolish pride. Perhaps I'll have to transcribe it.

Innaresting. Has anyone noticed that Trad. songs (might I say REAL folksongs) do not tend to be morbidly introspective? Or particularly sentimental. The classic regret for infidelity, I guess, is The House Carpenter (Daemon Lover), but the regret is implicit and not dewlled upon.

More seriously So Lonely - The Police starts with the lines:-

"Somebody told me yesterday
That when you throw your love away
You act as if you just don't care
You look as if you're going nowhere

I just can't live with no-one else
So I just have to play my part
And sit and nurse my broken heart

So lonely etc..."

THE WEAKNESS IN ME
Joan Armatrading


I'm not the sort of person who falls in and quickly out of love
But to you I gave my affection right from the start
I have a lover who loves me, how could I break such a heart
Yet still you gained my attention

Chorus:

Why do you come here when you know I've got trouble enough
Why do you call me when you know I can't answer the phone
You make me lie and I don't want to
You make someone else some kind of unknowing fool
You make me stay when I should not
Are you so strong or is all the weakness in me
Why do you come here and pretend to be just passing by
But I need to see you
And I need to hold you, tightly

Feeling guilty, worried, waking from tormented sleep
This old love has me bound but the new love cuts deep
If I choose now, I'll lose out, one of you has to fall
But I need you, and you.....

Repeat chorus

Chorus:

But I need you, and you.


Repeat chorus


The John Wright Band recorded a good version of it on the album "Other Roads" and as the sleeve notes say " I really admire a songwriter who can clearly and without fuss describe "real life situations". Joan Armartrading's song achieves this brilliantly. " ..... you make me lie, I don't want to". How many of us have been there?"

Couldn't have put it better myself!

Try this great song by Sawyer Brown, "All These Years"

She likes adventure with security
And more than one man can provide
She planned adventure feeling sure that he
Would not be home 'til after five
He turned on the lights and turned them off again
And said the one thing he could say

All these years
where have I been
I've been down the road to work and home again
But I'm still here
And until I'm gone
Don't you rub it in too hard that Ive been wrong
All these years

She said,'You're not the man you used to be'
And he said,'Neither is this guy'
She said,'There's some things you refuse to see
But I guess sometimes so do I'
She made no excuse why she was laying there
She said the one thing she could say

All these years
What have I done
I made your supper and your daughter and your son
I'm still here
And still confused
But I can finally see how much I stand to lose
All these years

Subject: Lyr Add: INTO TEMPTATION (from Crowded House)
From: Ed Pellow
Date: 25 Apr 00 - 03:52 PM

As a commentary on the unfaithful 'one night stand' I think Neil Finn's (Crowded House) song, 'Into temptation' would be hard to beat:

you opened up your door
I couldn't believe my luck
you in your new blue dress
taking away my breath
the cradle is soft and warm
couldn't do me no harm
you're showing me how to give
into temptation
knowing full well the earth will rebel
into temptation

a muddle of nervous words
could never amount to betrayal
the sentence is all my own
the price is to watch it fail
as I turn to go
you looked at me for half a second
with an open invitation for me to go

into temptation
knowing full well the earth will rebel
into temptation
safe in the wide open arms of hell

we can go sailing in
climb down, lose yourself when you linger long
into temptation
right where you belong

the guilty get no sleep
in the last slow hours of morning
experience is cheap
I should've listened to the warning
but the cradle is soft and warm

into temptation
knowing full well the earth will rebel
into your wide open arms
no way to break the spell
don't tell

I just remembered--I wrote an apology poem to my ex-fiancee when I cheated on him (disgraceful, I know, but I was too young--15--and in a relationship that I wasn't mature enough for), and it could maybe be set to music. I certainly don't need it anymore, so anyone who wants to could do what they will with it--except record or sell it. . .

Never


Bridget McKinney, 1998

I never meant to fall in love,
Especially so soon,
You're all I ever dream of,
Nighttime or afternoon.
You're all that I could ever want,
And all I'll ever need again
You're my lover and my confidant
My pain and hurt and my best friend.

Never--never--never again
Never will I forget the pain--
The pain I caused to you

I never thought that we would last,
But this time I was wrong
I thought that you'd be in the past,
By this point in the song
I wish you were still here to hear
Exactly how sorry I am
Please forgive me soon, my dear,
Please realise just how lost I am (without you)

Never--never--never before
Has one of our fights evolved to a war
Why did I start it now?

I've never been in love 'till now
I never expected or wanted to be
Sometimes these things happen, but how
Oh how I could do that, I'll just never see
I suppose I thought you wouldn't know,
I didn't think that I'd get caught
I surely didn't think you'd go,
But mostly I just don't think I thought.

Never--never--never again,
Will I hurt you the way that I hurt you then
The question now is: Will you forgive me?

I don't know if anyone else here has ever felt that way, and I've put that in the past myself, but this is what I felt at the time.

Peace--Bridget

It sounds like we're talking about the same one, Mbo. The way I learned it goes like this:

She's Gone, Gone, Gone

She said if I ever decieved her,
She'd leave before I could count to ten.
I guess I just did not believe her,
Now look at the trouble I'm in.

CHORUS

'cause she's gone,gone, gone,
Gone, gone, gone,
And the crying won't bring her back.
The more that I cry,
the faster that train,
Justs flies her right on down the track.

I lost every right to be happy,
I lost the new love that I found,
She said that she would and she left me,
Before my first tear hit the ground.

CHORUS

If I knew where I could find her,
I'd crawl there on my hands and knees.
Each tick of the clock just reminds me,
That she's one second farther from me.

CHORUS

Remorseful enough for you John ?(smile) The version by Brownie Ford includes some great backup guitar by David Doucet and a solo that was so perfect that I had to learn it note for note.

Frankie

John,

I am sorry there is no song among these responses which can speak for you; I know it would help. But I think you really should consider Margaret's advice about speaking for yourself, in your own song. I know that would help, too.

A
