thanks noreen,

i'll post it under the title of the song, see if someone catches it.

could anyone help me with a chord sequence to "Blues run the game and My Name is Carnival" by Jackson C. Frank". I heard Bert Jansch's version of them not too long ago. two very cool songs.

thanks for reading my thread the leveller

Hi again, Leveller (& Peadie?)

Firstly, from a site which invites memories of Jackson FrankJackson always told me that Bert (Jansch) was angry at him for the guitar riff in Carnival because Bert couldn't figure out how it was played. He showed me. and it is actually very simple once you realize that the chord he is playing is an unusual one. I can't wait to hear how he did with it! Jim Abbott

Then I found the Tab for "Blues Run the Game" at Brad's Paul Simon Guitar Tablature Page. That seems to be all that's available, since no-one else has come up with anything so far.

Noreen

Here's my transcription from Spotify. I can't say I understand what the song is about. I'll have to let someone else work out the chords.


MY NAME IS CARNIVAL
As recorded by Jackson C. Frank on "Jackson C. Frank" (1965)

I've seen your face in every place that I'll be goin'.
I read your words like black hungry birds read ev'ry sowin'.
Rise and fall, spin and call, and my name is carnival.

Sad music in the night sings a scream of light out of chorus,
And voices you might hear appear and disappear in the forest.
Short and tall, throw the ball, and my name is carnival.

Strings of yellow tears drip from black wire fears in the meadow,
And their white halos spin with an anger that is thin and turns to sorrow.
King of all, hear me call; hear my name: carnival.

Here there is no law, but the arcade's penny claw hanging empty.
The painted laughing smile and the turning of the stile do not envy,
And the small can steal the ball to touch the face of carnival.

The fat woman frowns at screaming frightened clowns that move enchanted,
And the shadow lie in wait outside your iron gates with one wish granted.
Colors fall, throw the ball; play the game of carnival.

Without a thought of sighs, you come to hypnotize the danger.
The world that comes apart has no single heart when life is stranger.
Wheel and call, cloud dreams all, in the name of carnival.

Wheel and call, cloud dreams all, in the name of carnival.

A 2-CD set of the complete recorded output of Jackson C Frank has just been released. Some of the non-studio recordings are bit ropey, but fine for completists.

I got my copy from Amazon:
