Subject: Lyr Add: LITTLE DARLIN', PAL OF MINE (Joan Baez)^^
From: Ralph Butts
Date: 24 Nov 97 - 06:14 PM

D.......I've got lots of Carter Albums, but not that song. This one is the Joan Baez version, ca. 1959......Tiger

LITTLE DARLIN', PAL OF MINE

In the night, while you lay sleeping,
Dreaming of your amber skies,
Was a poor boy broken hearted,
Listening to the winds that sigh.

    CHORUS
    My little darlin', oh how, I love you,
    How I love you, none can tell.
    In your heart you love another,
    Little darlin', pal of mine.

Many a day, with you I've rambled,
Happy hours, with you I've spent.
Thought I had your heart forever,
But I find it's only lent.

    CHORUS

There's just three things that I could wish for,
That's my casket, shroud and grave,
And when I'm dead, don't weep for me,
Just kiss these lips that you betrayed.

    CHORUS

These are close lyrics as I hear them on the Rounder (C 1064) release of the music the Carters did in 1927-28, supposely their first two sessions of recording. The only difference I found was in the first line"Many a night ..." The Carter start and end the recording with the chorus.

In about 72-73, I was at one of the early 'Walnut Valley Bluegrass festivals'..(National Flatpickin' Championships..etc..in Kansas)...met 5 or 6 other autoharpists in the campground, and we decided to tune up & play....after 30 minutes of tuning, the only song we could think of that we ALL knew was "Little Darlin',Pal o' Mine" ....somehow that seemed significant at the time...

Thanks to all. I'm new at this internet stuff, so I thrilled by the response. Is it always this easy?

RE: the "hartley" message in the older "pal of mine" thread: I have the CD and listened to it all day but couldn't make out the words for beans. You must have a better ear than me!

oh, sure...it's always this easy.....if we don't know the answer, we will invent one....*grin*...but it will seem so plausible, you will think you remember it...(just kidding...just kidding!!) actually, it can be really amazing sometimes..if you get 30 or 40 folkies together in a room, you can have a really broad array of songs available....and here you have many more...plus their libraries!!..Thats why this forum exists- to reduce the guessing and wondering...

Regarding Little Darlin' Pal o" Mine...I wrote the following verse which anyone is welcome to add.

" As I walk through life without you And my pleasures now are few Won't you think of me my darlin' As a maid who once loved you..."

Now harpgirl, I don't think you were ignored on this, your first post ~~ look! Someone was kind enough to put up FIVE more copies of your comment! :-) Looks to me like the dreaded thread killer was at work on this one ~~ happens to me every so often, too.

I do have a REALLY nice recording of this by either Anne Byrne or Paddie Bell ~~ Bell, I think. I'll look it up if you are interested.

As I recall the Joan Baez lyics, the first line was

"Many a night, while you lay ..."

Many a night while you ay sleeping
Dreaming of your amber skies
Was a poor boy brokenhearted
Listening to the winds that sigh

   My little darling oh how I love you
   I love you none can tell
   In your heart you love another
   Little darling pal o' mine

Many a day with you I rambled
Happiest hours with you I spent
I thought i had your heart forever
Now I find it's only lent

Many a dream I have been dreaming
Of your hair's long golden strands
Now you go to wed another
And you say we'll still be friends

There is nought for me to live for
If to anothers arms you go
My poor heart just keeps on breaking
I can't bear it hurting so

There are just three things I wish for
That my casket you embrace
When I'm gone don't weep for me
Just kiss those lips that you betrayed
