Subject: Dillards Lyrics
From: Brian
Date: 07 Dec 97 - 07:56 PM

I have been looking for the name of, and the lyrics to, a song performed by the Dillards. Some of the lyrics I remember are these: "There is a time for us to wander, when (days) are young, and so are we. There is a river, over yonder, the..........I don't know the rest. If anyone knows the title, and or the lyrics, please contact camper@gdi.net Thank you.

I would love to have those lyrics too. A little bird had said that a CD would be out this past summer with "Songs from Mayberry", I have not found it yet.

The name of the song is "There is a Time". If I am not mistaken, it is on an album of the same name. I don't know if it's currently available, since this was done by the original Dillards (Rodney Dillard singing, I think) many years ago (probably about the time of the Andy Griffith show). At one time I had this album, and another excellent album called "Front (or Back) Porch Bluegrass" I would love to find this material re-issued on CD. I have "There is a Time" on a tape somewhere. If someone doesn't get it first, I will see if I can get the words for you.

Oldtimer ???

For once I get to return a favor. "The Dilliards -- There is a Time" is on CD, Vanguard Records, VCD-131-32. and is available from Vanguard Records, 1299 Ocean Ave. Santa Monica CA 90401. This anthology is a composite of the best from Backporch Bluegrass, Live -- Almost, Pickin' and Fiddlin', Wheatstraw Suite and , of course, Copperfields. It occupies the # 1 spot in my jukebox and remains one of my all time collections -- check out "She Sang Hymns Out of Tune" Unbelievable !!

Happy listening

Thanks Les, Santa just got an updated wish list. Brian and Coralena- I am working on the lyrics. The Dillards were greatly responsible for bringing me into the Bluegrass fold. They were very progressive for their time, even though it may not seem so these days.

Subject: Lyr Add: THERE IS A TIME (from the Dillards)
From: Old Timer
Date: 10 Dec 97 - 11:41 AM

Here is the way I hear it by the Dillards:

THERE IS A TIME

There is a time for love and laughter
the days will pass like summer storms
the winter winds will follow after
but there is love and love is warm

There is a time for us to wander
when time is young and so are we
the woods are greener over yonder
the path is new the world is green

There is a time when leaves are falling
the woods are grey the paths are old
the snow will come when geese are calling
you need a fire against the cold

Repeat verse 2

So when you're roaming in the springtime
and you find your love in the summer sun
the frost will come and bring the harvest
and you can sleep when day is done

Repeat verse 2


I hope this comes through in a readable form..

Thank you Old Timer! The Dillards are a joy to listen to. Hope I can find a CD of them at one of the music stores in town. Some of my favorite Andy Griffin shows were the ones they were in. Also the actress that played their sister sang well too, I can hear her singing Salty Dog.

From: Old Timer

Here is one more. I don't want Dennis to be let down!

THE WHOLE WORLD 'ROUND

I heard my neighbor's rooster crow
Early in the day
I heard his axe beyond the hill
And now I'm bound away

For some men love the city life
And some men crave the town
And I'll be bound for the lonsome wood
Where I'll settle down

CHORUS: Fiddle and a bow and a firelight's glow
You can hear that lonesome sound
I'll leave behind my troubling mind
And go the whole world 'round

The red squirrel leaves when the grey squirrel comes
The eagle nests alone
A hundred miles from a wagon track
Is where I'll build my home

CHORUS

I've seen the old man whittling wood
I've seen the streets of town
I'll pack my goods for the Arkansas woods
And there I'll settle down

CHORUS


Enjoy!

Probably apropos of nothing (as they say)- I have a bit of trivia concerning the Dillards. Back in the later 40's, early 50's they lived in E. St. Louis, Il. They were in a Cub Scout pack when my dad was cubmaster. Their dad was also a song and dance sort of guy and helped out with the cub scout group. The brothers moved back to Missouri and created the best blue grass sound I know of. I have all their albums. Oops, sorry for babbling.

Since there have been a lot of questions about availability of the Dillards music, I went searching, and found these at the Elderly site:

video THE DILLARDS: A NIGHT IN THE OZARKS produced & directed by John McEuen The original Dillards reunite and join friends for an informal evening of music making. 85 min. 290-1.....our price $19.95 I have it, and think it would be a worthwhile investment for those true fans out there.

. . . and the recordings: HOMECOMING AND FAMILY REUNION CD...FLYF-CD215
LET IT FLY CD...VAN-CD79460
TAKE ME ALONG FOR THE RIDE CD...VAN-CD79464
THERE IS A TIME 1963-70 CD...VAN-CD131/32
TRIBUTE TO THE AMERICAN DUCK / ROOTS AND BRANCHES United Artists 1972-1973 CD...BGO-CD306

I eliminated their prices and cassette availability, but their prices are as good or better than most. I always buy locally when I can, though.

I'd like to thank you one and all for your great responses to my query. I have just put together a bluegrass quartet and hope to do a lot of the Dillards songs. That one is one of my favorites. Again, thank you. The Dillards were truly way ahead of their time. Brian

SINSULL here. For the vinyl collectors: The Dillards' LPs often come up for auction on Ebay and sell cheap - the shipping costs more than the record. But please don't outbid me! Love their "Reuben's Train" since I was a child.

And I have their Backporch album, the one with Polly Vaughn (the best rendition, IMHO, of anybody's). I will copy to tape--just wish I had CD burn capability--for you, if you wish. A Mudcatter just sent me 2 CD's he burned for me of music I treasre, so will be glad to "pay it forward." (Thanks again, Jerry!).

'Back Porch Bluegrass' and 'Live!!! Almost!!!' have recently become available on a single CD in the Elektra reissue series - Elektra 8122 3562-2. Should be grabbed quickly, as these things have a nasty habit of disappearing without trace.
