Richard Farina wrote words to the same tune as Lagan Love (which is, I think, really the tune called Belfast Maid, right?), and it's called "The Quiet Joys of Brotherhood." I have only heard it sung by Sandy Denny and am wondering a few things. First, can anyone post the lyrics (my Sandy Denny is trapped on vinyl and I haven't a turntable)? Second, is there a recording of Richard Farina singing this himself? Third, did he have anything to say about it and his inspiration to use the Irish tune? Thanks. Margaret

ADD LYRIC

THE QUIET JOYS OF BROTHERHOOD
(Richard Fariña)

Where gentle tides go rolling by
Along the salt-sea strand
The colors blend and roll as one
Together in the sand
And often do the winds entwine
To send their distant call
The quiet joys of brotherhood
When love is lord of all

Where oat and wheat together rise
Along the common ground
The mare and stallion light and dark
Have thunder in their sound
The rainbow sign, the blended flood
Still have my heart enthralled
The quiet joys of brotherhood
When love is lord of all

But men have come to plow the tides
The oat lies on the ground
I hear their fires in the field
They drive the stallion down
The roses bleed, both light and dark
The winds do seldom call
The running sands recall the time
When love was lord of all

DRO ^^

This song was printed in Volume 15, #4 of Sing Out! Magazine. Does anybody have the tune, and can they transcribe a MIDI and xe-mail it to Alan of Australia (click) for the Mudcat MIDI Page?

I have a recording of this song on Pete Seeger's God Bless the Grass CD. It's a beautiful song, but I'm not sure I could sing the melody. It doesn't quite fit my style.
Dave, note that I changed your lyrics to Digital Tradition format when I harvested it, including the songwriter name in parentheses and putting the song title in ALL CAPS. I also added <br> line breaks in the blank lines between stanzas so the lyrics would copy-and-paste properly (blank spaces and <p> paragraph marks between stanzas cause problems).

The words I have are slightly different (per Sandy Denny)

2nd verse 'The oak and weed..." etc

"...The oak lies on the ground I hear their tires in the field..."etc

Beautiful song - sorry cant help with the melody Regards Ana

I suspect you would need permission to use the song in a movie. My understanding is that each deal has to be individually licensed. Richard Farina recorded for the Vanguard label and the song publishing information would be on the album. That would be a good place to start. The Harry Fox agency might help with mechanical royalty questions. Also either ASCAP or BMI might be able to help.
