Subject: around the place, I know that Fall is ..
From: GUEST,leeneia
Date: 24 Oct 00 - 04:49 PM

Several years ago I heard Sally Rogers (sp) sing a beautiful song about autumn on a farm. Now that the trees are turning, that song is haunting me. It contained the words, "..and when the hunters come from town, tum tumty tum tum and the deer, with their dogs ahead to point the game, around the place, I know that Fall is here."

If anybody out there has all the words to this song, would you please post them?

I heard it performed on Prairie Home Companion, a decade or two ago. The singer was a semi-regular on PHC back then, and I believe he said he wrote it. My memory says his name was Pop Wagner. Does that sound familiar to anyone?

Another possibility is Charlie Maguire.

That's it Jim. A search of the web revealed that Charlie Maguire does not have his own web site (he's now working full time as The Singing Ranger in a Minnesota state park), but I did fina a playlist for a radio station which played the song. It says that the song Fall is Here comes from HARBOUR LIGHTS/Train on the Island, which seems to mean the album Harbour Lights, on the label Train On The Island.

Hope that helps, leeneia.

Jacob

I believe Charlie Maguire wrote the song. Barry Luft recorded it, and sings it around Calgary (and a number of people have learned it from him). I'll see if Barry has a copy of the lyrics handy. Maybe tomorrow...

Barry Luft will pass on the lyrics, but I didn't get permission to put his email address on-line. Contact me at john.leeder@carswell.com, and I'll pass you along to Barry.

It's on Sally Rogers' "Circle of the Sun" album. Charlie Maguire tune I believe. Who is a relative (?) of Pop and Bodie Wagner, maybe, maybe not.

When the cows no longer care to go,
Out to the fields both far or near,
But stay close in the warm sun
Then I will know (or "Around the place I'll know") that fall is near.

When the hunters come in from the towns,
Seeking the pheasant and the deer,
With their dogs out front to point the way,
Then I will know that fall is near.

That's the best my memory can offer

Charlie Maguire now has his own website! There are sound samples of many of his songs there.
Following lyrics copied from http://www.charliemaguire.com/FallIs.html

FALL IS HERE
(Charlie Maguire © Mello-Jamin Music)

"I meant this song to be more than about a season of the year. It's about living on your own place, being your own boss, being proud of your work, and being aware of all the things that make up your world." --CM

When my cows no longer care to go
Out to their pasture far or near,
But stand close in the last warm sun,
Around the place, I'll know fall is here.

And when the corn goes into dent,
Across the fields like old men appear,
And we pick it and store it all away,
Around the place, I'll know that fall is here.

When the limbs of the apple and the pear
Lean down with their fruit so near,
And my children go a-gathering,
Around the place, I'll know that fall is here.

And when the hunters come from town,
Seeking the pheasant and the deer,
With their dogs in front to point the game,
Around the place, I'll know that fall is here.

When the hay and straw are in the barn,
Stacked to the roof, tier on tier,
Smelling like a summer come and gone,
Around the place, I'll know that fall is here.

Around the place, I'll know that fall is here,
When the evenings come early and the mornings are clear.
Over all of the fields that I worked this year,
Around the place, I'll know that fall is here.

[Sung by Charlie Maguire on "Harbour Lights: The Second Voyage."]

Hi Folks,

It was interesting to read all of the comments regarding my song "Fall is Here" which I wrote entirely in a dream one fall afternoon then woke myself up and wrote it down. It is still available and sung by lots of singers, and you can go to my web site as Jim Dixon has told you at and click on "Songbook" for "Fall Is Here" as well as twenty or so other tunes in the "book". I also have recordings available on the site for purchase.

To dispell other rumors I read about here let me tell you that I write songs six months out of the year for the National Park Service-US Department of Interior-although I have also written for Minnesota State Parks and have a new CD of that work available. I performed on "A Prairie Home Companion" from 1974 until 1983, and wrote a lot of my better known songs and premiered them on that show. I am NOT related to Pop or to Bodie Wagner, but they are my brothers just the same. We have shared a lot of road times and festival times together, and they are both doing well. Pop has his own web site too under his own name.

Thanks to Jim Dixon to tell me he logged "Fall Is Here" here. I appreciate the notice and to those who wrote in to help, thank you.

-Charlie Maguire

Wow, it gave me a turn to see that I had apparently posted a message in a somnambulistic state and then come upon it unexpectedly.

But then I saw that I posted it two years ago.

I'm so glad that Jim Dixon kindly posted the words to this song so that I can sing it around the house as fall returns.

I love the words of this song, and the prelude that preceeded it. It's exactly the way I feel about my own small country place, where every shrub and tree is known and the first signs of fall noted with intimacy. Thank you for writing such an evocative song, Charlie Maguire (and giving us a website to visit), and thanks to you, Jim Dixon for posting it.

I grew up listening to this song sung by Sally Rogers and I love it! Very deeply ingrained in my memory and association with fall.
Just reacquired the song and can listen to it for real again, and checking the internet for lyrics to see if if heard it all right. Now I think I must find the original version too.

Sally led this song at the recent Getaway gathering. Clearly it's still one of her favorites.

FWIW, I added a verse to this when I sang it this year:

When the swallows line the wires,
Rising from the cornfields near
To gather for their journey south
Around the place, I'll know that fall is here.

Blessings,
Barbara
