Christmas in the Trenches by John McCutcheon
Cranes over Hiroshima by Fred Small
Universal Soldier by Buffy Sainte-Marie
And yes, too, And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda

Yes, there IS a theme here. War is the *problem,* not the answer. When humanity discovers this truth and truly embraces it, life will be so totally, radically different we will not know what to do with ourselves. Then we can put our resources towards feeding the hungry, fighting disease, and supporting the arts like they should be supported!

Sorry for the rant, but it is never far from my consciousness. You understand, I am sure.

Also 'We Stayed Awake' by Huw Williams - Any parent who's walked the floor with an infant at two in the morning will appreciate the love in the song

The Lambs on the Green Hills - mournful tune, lost-love theme

Bonny Portmore... even just the words are enough to draw tears.

Yup, On Raglan Road, like the rest of you...

most songs by Loreena McKennitt, or Sting, or Enya

And just now, an old spiritual called "Down in the Valley to Pray" (aka Down to the Valley /Down to the River/ Down in the River) You can (hopefully) hear a clip of Alison Krauss from the 'O Brother' soundtrack by clicking here...

but if not, just search Amazon for the soundtrack and click on the appropriate track. Marvelously simple yet - yes... haunting. Even better is the King's Singers' version on 'Six', btw.

The Lass with the Delicate Air The version I've linked here is a male chorus, quite slow and wordless, but it's a full and generous song, not just a little sampling!

I hope some of you will enjoy being 'haunted' by a few new spirits...

regards from the bard

I know it's a long time ago, but someone posted part of this song and I just had to fill in the rest...

The Curse
By Larry Groce
Album: Please Take Me Back

Way Back in the Hills where the ginseng grows,
Back in a hollow where nobody goes,
There lives and old man that you never will see,
He lives in a hollowed-out sycamore tree.
Deer hunters tell of an awful fright,
Waking up cold in the middle of the night
From far, far away comes the mournful tune
Of the old man's fiddle in the light of the moon.

When the man was a lad so the stories all go,
A better fiddler never lifted a bow.
Every dance, every party for miles around,
well they hopped to the tune of his fiddilin' sound

He met a young lady one night in June.
Sweeter than the sweetest fiddilin tune.
After the night had passed away,
well they swore they'd Marry on the very next day.

Well the music rang out for the bride and the groom.
The fiddle and the bell and the dulcimer too.
Then an old woman stood when the party had done,
She said beware of the settin' of the sun.

The young man laughed and he took his bride.
They went into the hills for their weddin' night.
They soon forgot what the woman had said,
and when the sun went down his bride was dead.

(Softly)
Way Back in the Hills where the ginseng grows,
Back in the hollows where nobody goes,
There lives and old man that you never will see,
He lives in a hollowed-out sycamore tree.
Deer hunters tell of an awful fright,
Waking up cold in the middle of the night
From far, far away comes the mournful tune
Of the old man's fiddle in the light of the moon.


I love this one as a Halloween song.

Erik T.

Several songs that The NexTradition recorded are constantly in my head these days, most prominently "Sinner Man" and "Weldon." Kate Rusby's recordings of, well, just about anything, haunt me. What a great singer! Hearing Ed Miller sing Robert Burns's "A Man's a Man for A' That" last summer, backed up by 200 fiddlers, (me among them). It was a very moving experience hearing him sing that beautiful ode to brotherhood. It would make a great national anthem. Who knows, Scotland may someday be in a position to choose one.

How about "Gypsy Woman" -- either the original version by the Impressions (featuring Curtis Mayfield) or the truly fine version by Ry Cooder on his relatively early "The Slide Zone" album? I haven't figured out how to play this one yet. Have had some success with the Chieftains/Cooder version of "The Coast of Malabar" which stayed between my ears until I (think) I hacked it out on the tin whistle. Amen also to "On Raglan Road/Dawning of the Day", which is often a tin whistler's first tune. "She Moved through the Fair" is also right up there.

Oh, I am still haunted by the song that brought me to this site in the first place. I only remember a few lines and the haunting, eerie tune. It is about a ghost fiddler in the backwoods mourning a lover's death, as I recall:

Back in the woods where the ginseng grows,
Back in a holler where nobody goes,
There lives and old man that you never will see,
Lives in a hollowed-out sycamore tree.

Deer hunters tell of an awful fright,
Waking up cold in the middle of the night
From far, far away comes the mournful tune
Of the old man's fiddle in the light of the moon.

Like MMario, when I finally find it and can sing it through, I shall be released from it. (It has been nearly two months.)

However, I don't think I shall ever be released from this site. It is extremely addictive and you people are really something!

I am haunted by so many songs. Some come at me when I'm doing nothing special and some when I am special situations. Driving between the Finger lakes will get me singing "Liverpool Light",

...all the way from the Minch to Dundee...

Late at night with a cup of coffee and my small Martin its usually "The One Rose". But it might be "Our Mother the Mountain".

Some songs are perfect songs that we never seem to learn for ourselves to play. For me its "Tecumseh Valley" and "Jock o' Hazeldean", "Lost Mine of the Chisos" and "Spanish Is the Loving Tongue".

Mario, I am thrilled that you were haunted by song enough to learn it. Thank you.

I never would have guessed there were so many haunted people. One song that is mentioned a few times is And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda. I thought I might try it again, on my own out in the back room. Still can't get past the part where the cripled, wounded and maimed are sent back home, and nobody cheered, they just stood and stared.

Anyone who is a regular attender at Anzac Day dawn parades may have a bit of trouble singing this song. I can't anymore.

Keep up the postings, there have been some great tunes and songs mentioned.

Thanks, mcpiper.

From: Steve Latimer
Date: 22 Nov 00 - 04:48 PM

Thyme2dream,

Here you go, straight from www.bobdylan.com

Love Minus Zero/No Limit
Bob Dylan

My love she speaks like silence,
Without ideals or violence,
She doesn't have to say she's faithful,
Yet she's true, like ice, like fire.
People carry roses,
Make promises by the hours,
My love she laughs like the flowers,
Valentines can't buy her.

In the dime stores and bus stations,
People talk of situations,
Read books, repeat quotations,
Draw conclusions on the wall.
Some speak of the future,
My love she speaks softly,
She knows there's no success like failure
And that failure's no success at all.

The cloak and dagger dangles,
Madams light the candles.
In ceremonies of the horsemen,
Even the pawn must hold a grudge.
Statues made of match sticks,
Crumble into one another,
My love winks, she does not bother,
She knows too much to argue or to judge.

The bridge at midnight trembles,
The country doctor rambles,
Bankers' nieces seek perfection,
Expecting all the gifts that wise men bring.
The wind howls like a hammer,
The night blows cold and rainy,
My love she's like some raven
At my window with a broken wing.

haunting, for me, means that a song crawls into my head just when i think i've put it to rest by playing or singing it over and over again. with that in mind (no pun intended!), my top three would be "Follow Me Up to Carlow", "Danny Boy", and Steeleye Span's version of "Wife of the Soldier".

if i include pop music, "The Things I Do For Money" (The Northern Pikes), "Nobody's Hero" (Rush), "Foolish Games" (Jewel), and "Valparaiso" (Sting) would be on my list, too.

an album that i find myself playing over and over again is Sting's _Soul Cages_. if you're looking for some extremely haunting songs (mostly involving the ocean), it's definitely one to watch out for.

Here's one that always stays so near to my heart....

You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch

You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch.
You really are a heel.
You're as cuddly as a cactus,
You're as charming as an eel.
Mr. Grinch.

You're a bad banana
With a greasy black peel.

You're a monster, Mr. Grinch.
Your heart's an empty hole.
Your brain is full of spiders,
You've got garlic in your soul.
Mr. Grinch.

I wouldn't touch you, with a
thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole.

You're a vile one, Mr. Grinch.
You have termites in your smile.
You have all the tender sweetness
Of a seasick crocodile.
Mr. Grinch.

Given the choice between the two of you
I'd take the seasick crockodile.

You're a foul one, Mr. Grinch.
You're a nasty, wasty skunk.
Your heart is full of unwashed socks
Your soul is full of gunk.
Mr. Grinch.

The three words that best describe you,
are, and I quote: "Stink. Stank. Stunk."

You're a rotter, Mr. Grinch.
You're the king of sinful sots.
Your heart's a dead tomato splot
With moldy purple spots,
Mr. Grinch.

Your soul is an apalling dump heap overflowing
with the most disgraceful assortment of deplorable
rubbish imaginable,
Mangled up in tangled up knots.

You nauseate me, Mr. Grinch.
With a nauseaus super-naus.
You're a crooked jerky jockey
And you drive a crooked horse.
Mr. Grinch.

You're a three decker saurkraut and toadstool
sandwich
With arsenic sauce.

What's really great with this song is that the name Mr. Grinch can be substituted with other names, like Harry Fox for example....Isn't it great how the folk process works?

Lady Franklin's Lament:
"I dreamed a dream, and thought it true."

Midnight on the Water; I think someone mentioned that.

The Lonesome Roving Wolves; Rosalie Sorrels used to sing this quietly and unaccompanied and raise your hair up.

And a fragment of something that Steeleye Span slipped between the verses of The Weaver and The Factory Maid:
Oh, when I was a tailor, I carried my bodkin and shears ...
And wherever I go, here's the jolly bold weaver again

Never found any more to it than the one verse. The harmonies (Maddy Prior and Maddy Prior ) stay in my head always.
