I posted this in the Peace for Ireland thread originally.

All The Fighting, Lord
(tune of All My Trials)

Hush my country, don't you cry
You know that we all are born to die
May all the fighting, Lord, soon be over

It's not too late, dear brothers
It's not too late to march together
May all the fighting, Lord, soon be over

As my tears ring out in the moonlit night
I pray you'll lower your rifle sights
May all the fighting, Lord, soon be over

I've got an orange sash given to me
Stitched on the breast are strips of green
May all the fighting, Lord, soon be over

There is a wall they call the Peace Line
Tear it down and let your hearts shine
May all the fighting, Lord, soon be over

Just put these three wonderful songs into the Songbook:

A Good Line by Spider Tom - a wonderful song about the strange things you can catch when you go fishin'...

Ice Damming by Barry Finn - if it's hot where you are, cool off by singing this catchy song!

Vhere Da Rippling Vaters Flow by Lloyd62 - a sweet song of remembering . . . Lloyd wrote this after his recent surgery - just goes to show that you can't keep a great Mudcatter down!

I had originally posted this here but I made some changes and decided to post it here with the changes made and all...

I Wish I Was Back Home...

Chorus:
I wish I was on the Kootenai River
I wish I was among those northern hills
I wish I was on the Kootenai River
I wish I was back home…

Walking down the street past the closed up shops
Snuggling against the cold in the snowlit night
Hands stuffed into pockets, hiding from the chill
Hood blanketing the head, fighting winter's bite

Frozen shoelaces flap around with each step
Smoky tendrils of fog escape the twitching lips
Snowmen standing by the sidewalks greeting
Passersby with outstretched wooden fingertips

Chorus:

Slogging across the sodden lawn, snow receding
Dandelions poke their heads up embracing the sun
Birds come back north to raise their families
The Kootenai singing on, rambling down her run

The rain clouds shift and congregate in prayer
Darkening, crying out in joy at the coming spring
The farmers work their fields, riding the tractor cats
The birds bring out their flutes to play "On The Wing"

Chorus:

Schools out, kids across the street playing baseball
Birds dance on the limbs as their kids leave the nest
Bees whistle as they pollinate, spreading the nectar
The sun reaches out its arms caressing the rivers breast

The piper from Creston leading the annual parade
The huckleberry pies sit on the table in patriotic glory
Swimmers dive beneath the clear depths of Deep Crick
Listening to the water whistle its endless story

Chorus:

The geese cry, flying towards their southern refuge
The leaves turn brown, rotting from their treetops
The flowers sink down, hiding from the coming cold
The windows pound in the impact of the raindrops

The schoolyards bellow with the laughter of children
Down the valleys the cold wind begins to blow
Guns roar in the hills, hunting for elk and deer
Firewood is gathered in preparation to the coming snow

Chorus:

We have some wonderful new additions to the Mudcat Songbook by Amergin today: Farewell, full of melancholy and longing; Dance In The Mudcat Tavern, which Amergin signed liked this -- "Amerginwhoapologisestoanyonewhofeelsleftoutofthisbutifyougetmadathimforityoucanpissoff" (but it's a hoot!); and We Will Meet Again, a sweet, but spooky, love song.

And speaking of new additions, we have a brand new Mudcatter adding his very first (Mudcat) song to the Book! It's The Rains Of April by MichaelAnthony, a beautiful, haunting, and evocative poem in itself; and I hope we all can hear him sing it on the Mudcat Radio very soon. Welcome to the Mudcat, MichaelAnthony!

Thank you both very, very much.

The Explicit Lyric song didn't have an explicit title - I suppose it might have been implicit that the title was the first line. But if I can give an explicit title to the explicit lyrics song, I'll call it 'Explicit Lyrics' (if you see what I mean)

Nice one Amos.

I thought that I had already posted this one, but I do not appear to have.

The Price To Pay (The Party, Party Song)

Well, you saw me walk in that door
Looked at you and liked what I saw
Living life is what it's for
Nothing more

I could talk to you all night
It was dark, 'til you put on the light
No need to be polite
It's alright

C'mon and party on, my dear
You bring the whisky, I'll bring the beer
It's Paddy's night and New Year
Over here


Let's get out of this bar
My place ain't heaven, but it's not too far
Remember, wherever you go,
Well there you are

It may not last too long
But it's alright, 'til it's all wrong
If it lasts 'til the booze is gone
Then you're the one

C'mon and party on, my dear
You bring the whisky, I'll bring the beer
It's Paddy's night and New Year
Over here


We wear the scars of many battles
The wrong moves made at the wrong time
The past spreads behind us, like a bruise
We're prisoners free, to repeat the same crime….


Well, pass that bottle round
Think I'm on that 'holy ground'
Nothing's lost and nothing's found
We'll paint this town

Tomorrow is another day
We'll drink this night away
We know the price to pay
And it's OK

C'mon and party on, my dear
You bring the whisky, I'll bring the beer
It's Paddy's night and New Year
Over here

Stoneground

I see that limestone, look, in your eye
I know you can't help it but still you try
Is it a place you're seeking or a state of mind?
I can take you there, but what would you find

Roaring, pummelling thoughts aside
It plunges deeper, deeper than a knife
Uplifting, in forlorn moments
It ignores the natural forces of life

Stoneground…Where I want to be...On Stoneground
My roots down… Surrounded by the sea…On Stoneground
I'm home!……….I'm home!


Its twisted ways, torturous to the mind
Chosen paths, must be ignored
Like a jealous child, it holds the heart
Return to the nest, in innocence

Debilitating needs, thunder on
Ceaselessly pushing towards it's goal
Taken along, there is no rest
Oh! Let me be where I belong

Stoneground…Where I want to be...On Stoneground
My roots down…Surrounded by the sea…On Stoneground
I'm home!……….I'm home!

When we were living in the Shetland Islands, Katrina became very homesick for her birthplace Portland. Which is a big lump of limestone sticking out into the English Channel. The distance between the two places is about as far as you can get and still remain in the UK.

She wrote a poem about how she was feeling then, and if I had read it earlier we would have moved long before we did. We turned it into a song when she was feeling better and living on Portland. I just added the chorus and the first verse.

There ya go, Alex (a/k/a mousethief) -- You're very first addition to the Mudcat Songbook, the wonderfully wacky What Can We Talk About?. I've put it in the 'Thread Songs' category, so look for it there. Congratulations and Cudos to our newest member of Songbook writers and may we see plenty more songs from him in the future!!

I've been advised by mousethief that the real title of his first-ever-Mudcat-Songbook-song is The Sex Life of Chinchillas; and as such, ye shall now find it in the Book under the Thread Songs category...*BG*

Three more great songs added to the Songbook this morning:

Mona Lisa Never Really Smile by MichaelAnthony and a song submitted by MichaelAnthony, Say A Prayer For Dirty.

The Day They Slowed Ol' Mudcat Down by mousethief, which you can find in the Parodies category.

Thanks to these new Mudcatters who are making some excellent contributions to the Songbook. Take a look, Mudcatters, and you won't be disappointed!

Yet another mousethief 'classic' added to the Book today. If you're a fan of the film, 'Three Faces of Eve', you'll love this song! It's in the Thread category, and it's called: Anonymous, Unreal and Phony. It's a hoot.

Oh stop, Aine! You're going to make me vain! (does that rhyme? How DO you pronounce your name/handle?)

Here's one I wrote when I was about 17 years old, more or less. But if you say nice things about it I might send you another, so be careful!

Wild and Free
by Alex Riggle

While sleeping on a summer night
Beneath a broad oak tree
I woke to find a unicorn
Running wild and free
Running wild and free
(repeat this phrase after each verse)

I held my breath and turned to watch
The show he gave for me
Dancing gracefully beneath the stars
And running wild and free

And when at last his dance was done
He shyly came to me
And bid me climb upon his back,
Go running wild and free

And so we ran beneath the moon
The unicorn and me
So clean and pure that summer night
We were running wild and free

I often think back to that night
And what it meant to me
How dull men's lives are when compared
To running wild and free!

If someone would teach me how to do that note thing that people post tunes by, I could post the tune to this. Is there software people use?
