Lyr Req: When the Roses Bloom in Dixieland

DigiTrad:
ANCHORED IN LOVE
ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT?
ARE YOU TIRED OF ME MY DARLING
BLUE EYES
BUDDIES IN THE SADDLE
CHEWING GUM
DEAR COMPANION
DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH
GEORGIE ON THE IRT (parody on Engine 143)
GOD GAVE NOAH THE RAINBOW SIGN
GOLD WATCH AND CHAIN
I AIN'T GOT NO HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE
I CAN'T FEEL AT HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE
JUST A FEW MORE DAYS
LULU WALLS
RAILROADING ON THE GREAT DIVIDE
SAILOR ON THE DEEP BLUE SEA
SINGLE GIRL
THE CUBAN SOLDIER
THE LITTLE GYPSY GIRL
THE STORMS ARE ON THE OCEAN
THE WRECK ON THE C & O
WAVES ON THE SEA
YOU ARE MY FLOWER

I heard this on the radio once a long time ago. I've still got the tune in my head but I've never met anyone in Australia who has ever heard of it. Any help please. Regards, John

Hey, John! There is likely a ton of people here who can do this for you. Great Song. It is WAY past my bedtime or I'd check it out for you now. Let me know if you'd like a Real Audio of it. I have several versions to choose from. Better yet, check with Stewie, an Australian that I KNOW has heard it ~~ don't know how close you two are to being neighbors, but I'd lay big odds that he'd be delighted to play it for you!

Ah, I couldn't go to bed without at least a little bit. Good versions out there by The Carter Family, Tim and Mollie O'Brien and others, but an uncommon one that I like a lot is by Laura Boosinger of North Carolina ~~ uncommonly good, too! Check her out at lauraboosinger.com

This page has a 1:40 second RA sample of When The Roses Bloom in Dixieland done up in fine style by Laura. Check out Letter From Down The Road on the same page, but on a different album.

Dale, thanks for staying up a little late to deliver those links. Isn't she just bloody marvellous? I just loved the production values as well, really simple sounding backing that was as hard to play as all hell. Is she the banjo player? It's not my normal genre but it sounded like John Hartford had an influence there. I played every track I could - twice. Absolutely magic. Regards, John

I'd still like the set of words please if they're not too hard to find.

Lyrics brought forward from previous thread -

* WHEN THE ROSES BLOOM AGAIN *


Thanks to Pete -

WHEN THE ROSES BLOOM IN DIXIELAND

CHORUS
When the roses bloom in Dixieland
I am coming home to you
When the band is playing music grand
To the sweetest gal I knew
I am saving up my money
To buy a little cabin home for two
When the roses bloom in Dixieland
I am coming home to you.

I got a letter from the sunny South
From my girl in Tennessee
She says she loves me like she used to do
And she's waiting there for me.

I answered her her letter
Though I am far away
When the roses bloom in Dixieland
I'm coming home to stay.

I left my honey at the railroad track
Saying honey wait for me
I'm going to make a lot of money up North
Then it's me for old Tennessee.

Hey, Gene, there you are ~~ beat me to those lyrics posted by Pete by just a bit, though it may have been a virtual tie, as I went to the DT to look for them there afterwards.

Thanks for the good words about Laura Boosinger, John ~~ she is a gem, and yes, that would be her playing the banjo. As to influences, while I cannot speak for the lady, I would think she would be more likely to have been influenced by David Holt.

Oh, and here are a couple more sound samples (New River Train and Hush Little Baby) from Wayne Erbsen's pages ~~ he put out her album Sing It Yourself!, so it is on his website. You'll find her album at the bottom of that page.

She was at Merlefest, which just concluded. However, I missed it yet again.

...Tsk..I guess you can't please everyone...*grin*...I'm afraid Laura Boosinger is not my cup of tea....she is obviously quite talented, but stylistically, it strikes me as if they taught Marilyn Monroe to play banjo REALLY well, but forgot voice lessons....that 'breathy' sound just doesn't move me...and she 'tweaks' the tune in funny ways...odd notes and rhythmic eccentricities. No, I'm not suggesting everyone should play and sing songs exactly alike, I just have the sense that she attended a couple of "make a song your own" workshops, and was inspired..*Big smile*.

Well, now that I've offended my good buddies here, I'll just slink off in the corner and listen to some Hedy West (or even Harry & Jeannie West!) to clear my head....

Just one small correction: everywhere the phrase 'coming home' occurs in the above set of lyrics, the Carters actually sing 'coming back'. 'Back' should also replace the first 'her' in the first line of the second last verse. They repeat the chorus before and after the final verse, but not between verses 1 and 2.

Dale, thanks for the link to Laura Boosinger. I have never heard her and, unfortunately, my RealPlayer seems to have a mind of its own - it won't play those clips. Despite Bill's reservations, I am willing to dip the toe - which album would you recommend?

--Stewie.

Bill, I think you summed up the lady really well, and now I like her even more. The visual of Laura/MM plucking her fifth string will haunt me forever. You've made me a rabid fan - thank you, thank you. Regards, John

Charles Wolfe says that it was a 1913 composition by George 'Honeyboy' Evans, one of the last of the great minstrel showmen who was known also for his 'In the Good Old Summertime'. Wolfe describes it colourfully as 'another instance of an old sheet music publication "getting loose" in the folk tradition'. The Carters were the first to record it. I looked in Levy and Duke for the original, but turned up nothing. Has anyone seen the original? It would be interesting to know whether, or to what extent, it was transformed by the folk process.

There is also a rather languorous (in the best sense) version by John Hartford on John and Jamie Hartford 'Hartford & Hartford' Flying Fish FF70566.

I am sure Laura wouldn't mind being compared to Marilyn Monroe, at least in some ways. (I have heard her "sing", by the way ~~ Laura is better. Don't know if MM played the banjo or not) Oh, and I kind of liked the way she 'tweaks' the tune! Actually, I am not at all offended. It would likely be a sorry situation if we all liked exactly the same singers to the same degree ~~ don't think that would make for much variety. WARNING ~~ near heretical statement follows: Take me for instance, I have never cared for Bob Dylan, don't own a single one of his albums, and don't suppose I ever will, unless someone gives me one. (end of heretical statement ~~ those who were offended may resume reading, and no, you won't change my mind by arguing about it) I could have named any number of other musicians who are highly regarded in these parts, while saying that I actually like others that people would probably look at me strangely if I were to admit it. One for instance ~~ I really do like Lisa Loeb! (insert your gasps of dismay here)

OK, back to the subject before I spear any more sacred cows. Stewie, I have to confess that while I have been familiar with her music for quite a while, and she is known to friends of mine, I have yet to purchase any of her CDs. Perhaps this is the impetus that I need to get cracking on that. If I were to get only one of them, I think I would go for the Down The Road album. They are available from her site, but it looks like you have to Email her or phone her to set up the arrangements. One advantage is that this way, she gets the lion's share of the profits. Her Sing It Yourself album is available from Elderly for $12.50. Oh, I just checked ~~ ALL THREE are available from CAMSCO, though Sing It Yourself is listed as cassette only, but I bet Dick could get the CD, too. That might be the way to go. Quote from the Camsco site, don't know if it comes from Dick or is left over Wally: Laura Boosinger's recordings and concert performances have earned her a well-deserved reputation as one of North Carolina's most talented singers and interpreters of the region. It is a pleasure to hear her sing and listen to her play.

My Carolina Home is available from tunes.com All Music Guide gives it four stars: Laura Boosinger interprets folk and country standards, reviving well-known numbers such as "My Carolina Home -- Carolina Moon," "Grandfather's Clock" and "When the Roses Bloom In Dixieland," as well as more obscure numbers. Though the clear production can be disarming for those listening to old timey music on scratchy '78s, Boosinger's singing and playing is impeccable, capturing the feeling of traditional Appalachian music. On My Carolina Home, she's supported by a number of stars, including Raymond McLain and David Holt.

-- Thom Owens, All Music Guide (I can vouch for the quality of music from both Raymond McLain and David Holt, having seen them in person and on TV)

I have an MP3 of her singing Josie Girl which I got from the Out of the Blue site. I will give details if anyone is interested. It is a very good bluegrass site with many shows on line, with several options for playback.

I too looked for sheet music and came up empty. We do have a number of titles at the Ozark Folk Center which are not available at any of the other sites. I will look first chance I get, which will be after I get the high school track season all wrapped up.

You are right about the Hartford and Hartford version, very laid back but pleasant enough. I had forgotten about that one.

John...you are MOST welcome..*grin*...(I might give a $ to watch MM try the banjo, now that I think about it..)

Dale.." Laura Boosinger interprets folk and country standards," says it all, for me...I like 'em to do more singing, and less 'interpreting'...but I sure agree about Dylan, and about "It would likely be a sorry situation if we all liked exactly the same singers to the same degree ~~ don't think that would make for much variety."

But I do kind like getting to put MY vote up for the world to see...(and, if I were in Laura's shoes, I would no doubt realize the one will come nearer making a living doing it like she does, than like I like)...the world has changed...
