All together now, on "Give My Love to Nell". By the way, Dick there are two errors in the dt lyrics for this song. (In the second verse, it is Joe who leaves for home after 3 years, and then in the last verse, it should say "Joe" again instead of "Jack" who says,"you selfish elf".) One more time on the chorus at the end!! Always reminds me of Irish miners who came to the gold rush towns like Butte. Alice

Just to get you youngsters in the mood to return to school, let's "Take Down That Old Silver Goblet" and quaff one to the ladies. It's sung to the tune of "Put On Your Old Grey Bonnet."

Dick, I didn't find this one in the files. Here 'tis:

Take down that old silver goblet,
With the (your fraternity) upon it,
And we'll open up another keg of beer;
For it's not for knowledge that we came to college,
But to raise hell while we're here.

Now, the dean of the college
says we should have come for knowledge,
And we mustn't ever take another drink;
for all our likker is a dang sight thicker
Than you get from out of the sink.

Oh, they took away our whiskey,
and they took away our beer,
And they're gonna take our cigarettes, too;
But we thank the Lord above us,
that we still have to love us
The co-eds of old Phi Mu (or whatever rhymes).

Bob, I'm not actually familiar with a lot of the folky songs from my home country, except for the ones I was taught as a child.. so I can't really help you much on the bluegrass. However, I can give you a rollicking bawdy song from the local neighborhood. I don't know the title, just most of the verses.. but it's rather infectious. >:) So for now I'll simply call it "Get it in, get it out."

From: steve t
Date: 09 Aug 97 - 02:31 PM

A bit of joy:

WESTERIN' HOME
Traditional (or at least one Scot indignantly told me that Robbie Burns did NOT write it)

As interpretted from the Cories' recording.

Best sung in a tin boat heading EAST down the lake to the cottage long before you've ever thought there might be anyone else who loves to sing.

Choose any key you like: If you like "G"...
Chorus: G - C G / C G C D / G - C G / G D C G
Verse: G - D - / G - C D / G - D - / C D C -

Westerin' home, with a song in the air
Light in her eyes, and it's good-bye to care
Laughter or love, and a welcome in there
Isle of my heart, my own land
(alt: Heart of my heart, my own one)

Tell me o' lands of the Orient gay
Speak of the riches and joys of Cathay
Hey! but it's grand, to be wakin' each day
And find ye'self nearer to Isla

Repeat chorus

Where are the folk, like the folk of the West?
Canty* and coothy* and kindly: the best!
There, I must hie me, and there, I must rest
At haim with my own folk in Isla

Repeat chorus twice
Fade out with dum, de,de,da...

Close pronunciations. Another Scot told me what they meant once and they were fine qualities for a friend...though I forget exactly what they were.

Well Kiwi,

Everyone was waiting for you to post the words to "get it in, get it out" ;-)

I didn't want to butt in again so soon, but seeing as you've started the bawdy stuff, let's all sing "Oh Sir Jasper".

The chorus we used to use is different to the one in DT. It goes....

She wears her silk pajamas in the Summer when it's hot
She wears her Winter Woolies in the Winter when it's not
but glory hallelujah in the Springtime and the Fall
when she sleeps between the sheets with nothing on at all.

TTFN Bert.

Joe,

As long as we've ambled into technicolor cowboy territory, I'd like to follow up with that touching and informative ballad from the Riders in the Sky, "That's How the Yodel Was Born".*

I know I can't sustain those high notes as long or as well as the inimitable Ranger Doug Green, but it should give all of us yodelers and wannabes out there a chance to ululate to our hearts content. (Might even get the coyotes to join in...)

*For those not familiar, the tune tells the tale of a singing cowboy who roped and rode a mean bronc as best he could, until:

"The bronco went up and the cowboy came down,

They met at the old saddle horn.

It made a deep impression, you could say it changed his life,

And that's how the yodel was born!"

"Glory, glory, what's it to ya,
Glory, glory, what's it to ya,?
Glory, glory, what's it to ya,
If she jumps between the sheets with nothin' on at all?"

Well, well, I seem to have missed a few songs while I was out... Anyway, I'll do a song that I picked up at the regular Monday night sessions in Leeds a few years ago (and it's not in the DT database, so I'll give you the words as well):

HOME BY BÉARNA (trad.)

In Scartaglen there lived a lass
And every Sunday after mass
She would go and take a glass
Before goin' home by Béarna

We won't go home along the road
For fear that you might act the rogue
We won't go home along the road
We'll go home by Béarna

We won't go home across the fields
The big thornins could stick in our heels
We won't go home across the fields
So we'll go home by Béarna

We won't go home across the bog
For fear we might meet Kearney's dog
We won't go home across the bog
But we'll go home by Béarna

We won't go down the milk boreen
The night is bright we might be seen
We won't go down the milk boreen
But we'll go home by Béarna

We won't go home around the glen
For fear your blood might rise again
We won't go home around the glen
We'll go home be Béarna

(Then repeat two first verses).

A great songs. One of these days I might just put together a MIDI file with the tune.

Who's next?

Regards,
Henrik

Is the tune anything like "Follow me up to Carlow".

If not then that'll be my contribution to the magical mysteries of the third Fantasy Folk Session. IF you are really nice to me I might even play it on the mandolin.

Back from Burque, and since this is the Wild West I'll continue the Hollywood cowboy songs with "Don't Fence Me In". Complete with the verse about Outlaw Kelly.

It fits very well to "follow me up to Carlow".

Couldn't let the cowboy theme roll by without a rousing chorus of "Rawhide."

I know this is presumptuous, so please forgive me.

But it seems the FFC 3 has slowed down considerably, so I'm going to make as suggestion for a new FFC. I would like to see a session of only parody, humourous, and risque songs with a folk flavor.

There are plenty of these in the DT, but I'm always interested in new ones. I especially encourage people to share funny songs that they have created themselves or have learned from local people.

I have started this idea in a thread titled

Parody Folk Circle I

Howdy All,

I hope all of you want to keep singing, too. Since I just posted "The Girl in the Wood" for another thread, that seems like a great song to do here. The chorus will be done twice between each verse to allow everybody a chance to do some singing. I'll play this minor tune in a DAC tuning on fretted dulcimer here and at the Emerald City Folk Festival in Cleveland this weekend. I love a lot of accompaniment and others joining in the vocals. I'll probably play it through once first on the dulcimer to help everyone get the tune.

Allinkausay,
Bill

Well, summer camp season hasn't quite ended - how "There's a Hole in the Bottom of the Sea"? Real fast, now:
There's a hole
on the wing
on the flea
on the fly
on the tail
on the frog
on the bump
on the log
on the bump
on the log
in the hole
in the bottom of the sea.

There's a hole,
There's a hole,
There's a hole in the bottom of the sea.

In a similar vein:

There was a little girl,
Just the cutest little girl,
Just the sweetest little girl in the whole wide world.
The girl was on the seat,
The seat was on the Ford,
The Ford was on the wheels,
The wheels were on the ground,
And the motor in the Ford made the wheels go round.
Match in the gas tank, boom-boom!

There was a little curl,
Just the cutest little curl,
Just the sweetest little curl in the whole wide world.
The curl was on the girl...

There was a little hat...

There was a little feathe

There was a little fly...

There was a little wing...

There was a little microbe...

Don't really know what title this song is under, but I heard it sung once as:

I wear my silk pajamas in the summer when it's hot I wear my flannel nightie in the winter when it's not And sometimes in the springtime, and sometimes in the fall I jump right in between the sheets with nothin' on at all!

Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, what's it to ya? Balmy breezes flowin' through ya With nothin' on at all.

So nice to see the restart with Westerin' Home. I feel like no time has past since I've been away.

K. Normally I stick to songs with choruses, but here's a nice change from the mega-chorus songs:

COMING OF THE SNOW by Rod McDonald, 1991

I use capo 3 with: (G) D D G G / D D G G / C C G G / D D GG

(When you de)cide to return again to the land that raised you
You find yourself travellin' back to your New England home
And you're passin' through and you run into somebody I used to know
Tell her I've been thinkin' about her in the comin' of the snow

And when you're standing on the pier by the empty harbor
And the fishin' boats are lying quiet until the spring
And you need a fire to sit beside while the winter weaves out its blow
Tell her I've been thinkin' about her in the comin' of the snow

And if you awaken with her long hair spread across your shoulders
And the day outside is as dark as her eyes
Take care to hold her close into the morning
And she will be true to you if you love her more than I

And if you're travellin' in the woods I used to walk along
And you find a rock a there standin' in the fallen leaves
And a chill should pass through the arms that cradle her longin'
You know that you can take her hand one more time for me

Instrumental

When you decide to return again to the land that raised you
You find yourself travellin' back to your New England home
And you're passin' through and you run into somebody I used to know
Tell her I've been thinkin' about her in the comin' of the snow
Tell her I've been thinkin' about her in the comin' of the snow
Tell her I've been thinkin' about her in the comin' of the snow

steve, the sentiment reminds me of "Four Strong Winds" (Ian Tyson), which was sung to overkill in the 60's, but is probably unfamiliar to youngsters these days. Well, since you mentioned fishin' boats, I'll start "The Squid Jiggin' Ground", but it's out of character for a soprano, so one of you baritones will have to pick it up for me.

Looking back, I realize that I never published the lyrics that I was asked to. (embarrassed blush) Sorry! I don't know all of them, but I'll post what I know. I don't actually know the title, so I guess y'all can keep calling it "Get It In, Get It Out." :) It's bawdy.. I picked it up at a RenFaire.

I put my hand upon her toe, yo ho, yo ho
I put my hand upon her toe, yo ho, yoho
I put my hand upon her toe,
She said, "Hey sailor you're much too slow,
Get it in, get it out, quick fuckin' about,
Yo ho, yo ho, yo ho."

I put my hand upon her knee, yo ho, yo ho
I put my hand upon her knee, yo ho, yo ho
I put my hand upon her knee,
She said, "hey sailor, quit teasin' me,
Get it in, get it out, quit fuckin' about,
Yo ho, yo ho, yo ho."

I put my hand upon her tit, yo ho, yo ho
I put my hand upon her tit, yo ho, yo ho
I put my hand upon her tit,
She said, "hey sailor, quit squeezin' it,
Get it in, get it out, quit fuckin' about,
Yo ho, yo ho, yo ho."

I put my hand upon her (censored), yo ho, yo ho,
I put my hand upon her (censored), yo ho, yo ho,
I put my hand upon her (censored),
She said, "Hey sailor, you know what I want,
Get it in, get it out, quit fuckin' about,
Yo ho, yo ho, yo ho."

(There are some other body part verses I can't remember)

(More Slowly)
And now she lies in a wooden box, yo ho, yo ho
And now she lies in a wooden box, yo ho, yo ho
And now she lies in a wooden box...
(faster)
From suckin' too many English cocks,
Get it in, get it out, quit fuckin' about,
Yo ho, yo ho, yo ho!

Well, if you folks don't mind, I'm feeling nostalgic. I find that certain songs cause me to feel the very emotions that I felt at a time in my life when I often heard or sang the songs. So let's go back, a little less than three decades, to a time when I had hair on my shoulders, (Back then it was still attached to my head) and we'll do "Me & Bobbie McGee" starting slow and building to a rousing finish with a lot of la-da-da-da-da's.

Gads, Alice! Nobody's done 4 Strong Winds yet? I learned it from a Harry Belefonte record and almost never heard it again until I started singing it at jams around 8 years ago. Love that song. You can go get yourself a fresh cup of Earl Grey or something if it's just too painful to join in. (hehehe)

From: JB3
Date: 03 Sep 98 - 04:19 AM

Since we've had some cumulative songs, here's one that reminds me of the one "sung" by Kiwi. Learned it in a folk club in England (Nuneaton, I believe). An unsuspecting young lass was induced to climb up on a chair (no, not yours truly!) and the song-leader demonstrated the song on or at her.

TOE-TAPPER

Touched her on the toe, that be my share
That be my toe-tapper 'n you can play there
Toe-tapper loves my dear
The more I loves, my dear draw near

Touched her on the knee, that be my share
That be my knee-knacker, you can play there
Knee-knacker, toe-tapper loves my dear
The more I loves, my dear draw near

Touched her on the thigh, that be my share That be my thigh-thacker, you can play there
Thigh-thacker, knee-knacker, toe-tapper loves my dear
The more I loves, my dear draw near

Touched her on the "a-hem"...
That be my funny-thinger...

Touched her on the navel...
That be my navel-stringer...

Touched her on the breast..
That be my breast-plate...

Touched her on the chin...
That be my chinny-chops...

Touched her on the lips...
That be my chatter-box...

Touched her on the nose...
That be my snot-box...

Touched her on the eyes...
That be my out-lookers...

Touched her on the head, that be my share
That be by brain-box, 'n you can play there
brain-box, out-lookers, snot-box, chatter-box, chinny-chops, breast-plate, navel-stringer, funny thinger, thigh-thacker, knee-knacker, toe-tapper
loves my dear
The more I loves, my dear draw near

This is the way I remember it, would appreciate corrections.

Cheers, June

Subject: Lyr Add: SPANISH IS THE LOVING TONGUE (variant)
From: Alice
Date: 03 Sep 98 - 12:00 PM

I love Ian Tyson's voice, and Four Strong Winds reminds me of "Spanish is The Loving Tongue". I sing my own variation from a woman's point of view, but last year when I sang it at a small circle in a coffee shop, an old folk singer from Wyoming asked, "Where did you learn that?" It turned out he knew the original songwriter.

original is in the database
Alice Flynn's version, "Spanish is the Lovin' Tongue"

Spanish is the loving tongue

Soft as music, light as spray;
There was a boy I learned it from
Living down Sonora way.
I don't look much like a lover,
Yet I say his love words over.
Mostly when I am alone
"Mi amor, mi corazon".

On the nights when he would ride
I would listen for his spurs,
Throw the big door open wide,
He'd raise those Latin eyes of his.
How those hours would get to flyin,
All too soon I'd hear him sighing,
In his sad and loving tone,
"Mi amor, mi corazon"

Well, I've not seen him since that night,
He can't cross the line, you know.
They want him for a gamblin fight,
Like as not it's better so.
Yet I've always sort of missed him,
Since that night that I last kissed him,
I lost my heart, and he left to roam,
"Adios, mi corazon."

Now, let's have an upbeat song.... anyone have a fast singalong?

Okay, Alice, this version of carrion crow has a repeat line, so limber up your tongues, and pay attention.. (and it has a major, not minor tune)(can't you tell?)
A CARRION CROW SAT IN AN OAK

A carrion crow sat in an oak,
To my inkum kiddy kum kymo ray
Watching a tailor mend his coat,
To my inkum kiddy kum kymo ray

cho: Hey folero, gilt in a garrow
Hey folero, gilt in a gay
Up jumps John a-ringing on his bell,
With me inkum kitty come kymo ray

Bring me my arrow and my bow,
To my inkum kiddy kum kymo ray,
Till I go shoot that carrion crow,
To my inkum kiddy kum kymo ray.

The old man fired; he missed his mark;
He shot the old sow through the heart,
To my inkum kiddy kum kymo ray.

Bring me some 'lasses in a spoon,
To my inkum kiddy kum kymo ray,
Till I go heal that old sow's wound,
To my inkum kiddy kum kymo ray.

Oh, now the old sow's dead and gone,
To my inkum kiddy kum kymo ray,
Her little ones go squealing on,
To my inkum kiddy kum kymo ray.

Blessings, Barbara
