Subject: Queen of the night?
From: Rhiannon Fox
Date: 27 May 01 - 07:50 PM

Hello folks. I'm trying to get hold of the lyrics to a song I used to know when I was a child. It starts thus:

Here I dream of the old grey tree Sticks o bare and woe is me

The chorus is:

Silks and satins does she wear Gold and diamonds in her hair She is the queen of the night so fair.

I'd be so grateful for some help. Cheers! xxx

Me too, Liz... (picture the two of us, driving to a funeral, windows wide open, singing along to the Queen of the Night's aria at the tops of our voices...)

Sorry, Rhiannon- can't help you.

I used to sing that song, by Mike Raven, with my own folk group here in Spain. That was ages ago in a time when nobody seemed to care if the words made sense or not (very few could understand them, anyway). What WE USED TO SING was:

Here I dreamt of the old grey tree
sticks so bare and woe is me.
Ofttimes in the night I sigh
Where is the Queen of the Night? I cry.

Silks and satins does she wear
gold and diamonds in her hair
she is the Queen of the Nignt so fair.

Crackles of frost in the autumn sky
see the blackbird oh so shy.
To the hell or heaven I'll go
There is no peace in the ground below.

Silks...

She has charmed and torn my soul
Ragéd the fire with golden coals
I care not if I live or die
where is the Queen of the Night I cry?

Silks...

Give me a shroud of tangier hue
Tell tall Arabs of noble brood
Set them each with a silver spade,
dig for me the deepest grave.

Silks...

Fabulous music, a lot of choral possibilities. We used to make the last verse a capella.

There is a MIke Raven Guitar book with his arrangement of it in, I have it, though I lack the technology/time/equipment to make it available to you. I am not even quite sure when I last saw it, I will look when I get home. It has been mentioned on other postings so is probably still available. Good luck, JohnB.
