Trying to find the name of the song with the lyrics: The shady side of sunny mountain, that's the place it all began. There once lived a fairest maiden, and her name was Julianne.

The New Christy Minstrels sang Julianne on one of their albums. I have seen a song-book for the album, but it's been years ago. The tune is similar to the one I've heard sung to Poor Wayfaring Stranger. Here are the words I remember to the chorus and last verse. (There's another verse that introduces a false lover and how he promised to make her rings of siver, but instead goes off a'courtin' another.)

Have you seen her in the moonlight
Silver rings upon her hand
Now she wears a crown of sorrow
And her name is Julianne

The cabin door was standin' open
On that wild and lonely night
And the hound-dog he lay a dyin'
In the gloomy fire-light

They found her shattered empty rifle
And the gown she used to wear
But they never found poor Julie
And they never found (they never found!) that hungry bear


I loved the album that it was on, as a kid. My brother has searched the web for a copy, but it's out of print. I would be interested if anyone has info on where to find it.

It occurs to me that you could do a parody of the above about potatoes named "julienne"

These are the lyrics I remember. I don't know the source.

JULIE ANNE

The shady side of sunny mountain
That's the place it all began.
There once lived the fairest maiden,
And her name was Julie Anne.

chorus
Have you seen her in the moonlight,
Silver rings upon her hands
Now she wears a crown of sorrow,
And her name was Julie Anne.

Julie's beau was tall and handsome
Just a poor boy with treasures few,
Still he promised rings of silver,
For to prove his love was true.

Out he rode across the mountain,
When the fields were wet with dew
But instead he went a ramblin'
And a courtin' Jenny Lou.

The cabin door was standin' open
On that wild and windy night
And the hound dog he lay a dyin'
In the gloomy candle light.

They found a shattered empty rifle
And the shawl she used to wear,
But they never found miss Julie
They never found the hungry bear.

alice in montana: I love the words for JULIE ANNE. But I must be a little dense. Where does the bear come in? Who killed who? Or are we to guess? To you who showed names of tune and word writers, I expect these were the arrangers. I believe this one goes a way back. Can anyone date it? - Philip Hudson in Texas

I, too, would like to find the lyrics to Julie Ann. Here's what I know of it, from what my father used to sing to me. I know there's got to be at least one more verse.

'Twas this side of sunny mountain is the place it all began
There once lived a fair young maiden and her name was Julie Ann

[Something's missing, here, I think]

Can't you see her in the moonlight, silver rings upon her hand?
Now she wears a crown of sorrow and her name was Julie Ann.

Julie's beau was tall and handsome just a poor boy, with treasures few
But he promised rings of silver just to prove his love was true.

Off he rode to sunny mountain ere the fields were wet with dew
But instead he went a-wanderin' and a-courtin' Jennie Lou.

[Chorus]

The cabin door was standing open on that dark and windy night
And the hound dog, he lay a-dying in the eerie candlelight

They found an empty, shattered rifle and the shawl she used to wear
But they never found his Julie, and they never found that hungry bear

[Chorus]

If anyone could fill in the gaps (the ones I know about or the ones I don't) I'd appreciate it!

I posted the lyrics here in the past at some time. I'll search the forum and see if I can find them. You've got it pretty much there, except for

chorus:

Have you seen her in the moonlight
Silver rings upon her hands
Now she wears a crown of sorrow.
And her name is Julie Ann.

That would be the NEW Christy Minstrels, formed in 1961, rather than Christy's Minstrels, a.k.a. The Christy Minstrels, formed in 1843.

I learned the JulieAnn song back in school in southeast Colorado in the 60's. I sang it to my daughter when she was growing up and now we both sing it to her twin daughters. It originated in Pike County Ky back years ago. I found nn article on it online by Googling " and she wears a crown of sorrow "

"Julianne" was recorded by the New Christy Minstrels,in 1963. They got it from "The Travelers" (1962, "The Travelers 3," Elektra recording). Composed by Sparks, who also wrote "Gotta Travel On."

Which Sparks??

As for Julianne...The answer to the questions is in the chorus line. She did him in to put it mildly.

When I was a folksinger in Texas in the middle 60's this was a favorite song that we performed at colleges and high schools and the people always wanted to know the story of how and when and why..This is the best answer I can give..Hope it settles some wonderment.

Hi I have been looking for this song forever since I first heard it many moons ago. I have an old copy from when I was just a pup and got another new copy of this a few yeras ago on eBay but I have never been able to find the guitar chords for it and zowwie I was justa fishin around and landed the best fish I ever caught right here.

Many thanks to oly669 for providing the chords, I really apprecaiate it and so will my guitar as soon as I put the song together. I don't know about the neighbors level of appreciation as I am a piker at the gitfiddle and hope I can learn this song before the rest of them move out.
Thanks again.

I heard this song from YMCA camp in the early 70's. I absolutely loved this song. I never thought I'd find ALL the words again. Thanks to all of you, I think I now have them all. For the one that asked about the bear? I think he broke into the cabin and she tried to shoot him, but he ate her. And the dog tried to stop him too, but them hungry bears are pretty strong. I don't think Julie Ann killed the boyfriend. He was just a...well, not very honorable! I would LOVE to talk to the person that penned this so long ago!

I agree with Brenda (3-9-15)...while her beau, who lied to her, was gallivanting around doing what he shouldn't have been doing, Julie-anne was left alone. In spite of having a rifle and a dog for protection, the bear got her and the dog, leaving only her shawl and the empty rifle behind.

My dim memory says that this song was actually written by the late Terry Wadsworth. He sang with the group for a short while. I can remember him singing it me. I also vaguely remember that he was broke and "sold" the song rights to Randy Sparks for something like $50. bob(deckman)nelson

I grew up (in the 70s) with lots of New Christy Minstrels, my father was a huge fan and would play a lot of their songs on guitar himself, and I recently stumbled back across this one - having long forgotten it, but boy the memory ran deep when I heard it again. Now my 7yo has started grooving on it, she seems to really dig its spookiness.

Hearing it again after all these years, the one new thing I feel like I've realized is, it's a ghost story. The chorus talks about her in the present tense - wearing a crown of sorrow in the moonlight, wearing the silver rings she was promised in life but never received.
