I would like the words to this Louvin Brothers' song to fulfill a request. I can remember only bits of the song~~the soldier was writing a letter to his mother, and at the end, it was finished by his buddy.

"From Mother's arms to Korea, and tomorrow I'll face the front lines. Then the next line was wrote by his buddy, from a foxhole to a mansion on high."

Hi, Dale. Love that song, in fact, love any song the Louvin Brothers did.

FROM MOTHER'S ARMS TO KOREA
The Louvin Brothers
Written by Charles and Ira Louvin

I just got an unfinished diary
That I once gave my darling son.
It starts the day when he left us
And ends 'neath the enemy's gun.

CHORUS: "From mother's arms to Korea
And tomorrow I'll face the front lines."
But the next line was wrote by his buddies:
"From a foxhole to a mansion on high."

"Last night I saw Mother kneeling
By the old hearthstone to pray.
In my dream, I thought I was with her."
And that's all my darling could say.

Please tell his sweetheart who's waiting
For his ship to anchor at shore
To change her plans and forget him.
Her lips he'll kiss no more.

FYI: I have been collecting all kinds of patriotic songs about the U.S. for over 50 years, from before the Revolutionary War to Desert Storm.

Thanks for the words! I am sure that the person who was searching for them will appreciate your help.

I have a few items that you might find interesting~~I would not call them rare, but at least uncommon. Do you have the Pelican lps of WWI reissues? I used to have a 78 of John McCormack doing Keep The Home Fires Burning, but it managed to slip away somehow~~I do have it on CD, however. Another album that I like a lot, is one of music of the Hutchison Family, written mostly in the mid 1800s. I also had a CD of WWII era songs which included Smoke On The Water and When The Yanks Raised The Stars And Stripes On Iwo Jima, two of my favorite songs from my childhood. I still have my old wornout 78 of SOTW, but I had not heard the other since I was in third grade.

I have not investigated it thoroughly yet, but this site http://www.besmark.com/ww1.html has tapes of WWI songs for sale.

Would like to find a WWII site like the WWI site mentioned.

I have Smoke On The Water by Red Foley but have been looking for Bob Will's version for a long time. Have an old 78 of Stars And Stripes On Iwo Jima by The Sons Of the Pioneers and also have White Cross on Okinawa. And have an old 78 of the Song Spinners - Comin' In On A Wing And A Prayer backed with Johnny Zero..

To the person whosupplied the words ti the requested song, and collects these songs up through desert storm: you must check out "The Rose of Saigon." It's on one of the more recent Danny Doyle CD's. my wife is sleeping, (I'm a bit of a night owl), so I can't go rooting around where our CD's are stored, or I'd wake her; I think the CD title is "Under a Canemarra Moon."

This is a truly beautiful song, arranged, sung and accompanied in his usual excellent way, but I'll have to warn you that it can arouse some pretty strong emotions (he's good at that), so bring your hankey.. Check out his other great CD's & albumns while you're at it-and, speaking of war-related songs, listen to his version of John Mckutcheons' (sp?) beautiful ballad set during WWI, "Christmas in the trenches," reportedly based on a real event.

cheers, BK

I'd say pretty active. BK last posted on 31-Aug-04, Gene and I still post, maybe just not as often as we used to. Like Greycap says, is there something we can do for you?
