Subject: The Army and the Navy Never Shall Agree
From: GUEST,John S
Date: 08 May 00 - 12:05 PM

Hi. I'm looking for the lyrics to a song I heard on Mary Cliff's "Traditions" some years ago. It has the words "the army and the navy never shall agree". Does anyone know the title and the composer? Is there a recording available?

The lyrics are available at www.kinesiscd.com/sunsign
Go to the New Saint George page and look for lyrics from "High Tea". There are some sound files as well.

DON’T YOU GO

Words and Music by John Martyn

The army and the navy
They never will agree
Til all the men, and all the boys
Are gone from this country

CHORUS

Don’t you go
Don’t you go my son
Don’t you go
Don’t you go my son

The proud and the powerful
In whose hands we lie
They never will be pleasured
Til all our women cry

CHORUS

The mastery of misery
They call the art of war
Must never triumph over peace
As they have done before

CHORUS

Repeat first verse

CHORUS

Isn't this the same song 'The House Band' sings with the title 'For the sake of example'?

Thanks, Skivee, for the lead. I visited the site and got the lyrics and I expect to get a hold of the CD as well New St. George may well be in our local Borders. Also encountered all kinds of interesting diversions along the way.

Regrds,

John

Dear Wolfgang;

Thanks Wolfgang! Yes "For the sake of example" and "Don't you go" seem to be the same song. I listened to it on Amazon.com - Doesn't seem to be on any of the John Martyn albums, who is the composer. Why this song has two titles isn't clear to me yet. I got the lyrics from the New Saint George website.

Thanks for steering me the right direction.

Regards,

John S

John,
I'm not so sure now, after rehearing, that I'm right. Problem is that I have only a tape of the House Band record and I don't trust completely the handwritten titles respectively don't know exactly which tracks belong to which titles.
They have the 'Don't you go' song from above exactly on their record but not with this title (thanks for asking, by the way, I had looked for these lyrics as well, but with another title) then comes an interlude and then a different song (within the same track) about a deserter being shot which starts 'At the age of fourteen' and has the words 'for the sake of example, just as an example' in it. I guess this is the song titled 'For the sake of example'.

Wolfgang

Adding to that from Johns own site

Don't You Go from Glorious Fool

The army and the navy
They never will agree
Til all the men and all the boys
Are gone from my country.

Don't you go
Don't you go my son
Don't you go
Don't you go my son.

The proud and the powerful
In whose hands we lie
Never will be pleasured
Til all our women cry.

Don't you go
Don't you go
Ah, don't you go
Don't you go my son.

The mastery, the misery
Called the art of war
Must never try and form a peace
As it has done before.

Don't you go
Don't you go my son
Don't you go
Don't you go my son.

The army and the navy
They never will agree
'Til all the men and all the boys
Are gone from this country.

Ah, don't you go
Don't you go my son
Don't you go
Don't you go.

Don't you go
Don't you go
Don't you go
Don't you go my son.
