Dear Catters, I've been playing Paul Siebel songs for a number of years now and just love ALL of his songs. Of course it's really cool he was born and raised in my own home town of Buffalo , New York . I was wondering if you would like to share some interesting stories about Paul, current or past and maybe list a few of your favorite songs of his ;like Louise or If you don't love her .

Dear Mike,

I have both of Paul Siebel's Elektra albums and think they're great. May favorite from Woodsmoke and Oranges is "My Town" and I like "Jasper and the Miners" Jack Knife Gypsy. Dont'know much more about him, other than I heard he now lives in Balitimore and thought he had pretty much said what he had to say as a songwriter.

I've always thought that "Woodsmoke and Oranges" was one of the greatest singer-songwriter albums ever.

There's now a CD reissue called "Paul Siebel" that includes all of "Woodsmoke" and half of "Jackknife GYpsy." It's on the Philo label.

I saw Paul a few years ago. He was living in Baltimore and out of the music biz.

I also heard of a live recording ( probably on vinyl) of his from 1981 called Live at McCabes on Wooden Nichol Records , however, I can't locate it.

Isn't Paul Siebel the guy who wrote "Louise" that has been done by Bonnie Raitt and Leo Kottke. VERY evocative! I haven't heard any other songs by him, so these suggestions are great. I think I read somewhere that Paul was a baker now.

I heard about PS back in about 1969 or 1970. The story was that he was the guy who taught Dylan how to "sing country" before the Nashville Skyline album. Who knows if there's any truth to that.

I recently pulled out my vinyl copy of Woodsmoke and Oranges & Jackknife Gypsy and was happy to find that they still stand up after all these years. "My Town" is, indeed, a great piece of writing, but my favorite is "Bride, 1945". It is a truly awesome, jaundiced slice of Americana.

Bonnie Raitt covered another of the songs on Woodsmoke & Oranges, but I can't recall the title here at work; The verse goes:
If you don't love her, you better let her go
You'll never fool her, you're bound to let it show
Love's so hard to make when you have to fake everything in return
You just preserve her when you serve her a little tenderness

One question: I was told that he was from Missouri, around Jefferson City. Can anyone confirm the details?

Well, a quick google search turned up a 1996 Dirty Linen article on Paul Seibel that was pretty informative. It seems that I've been wrong about him for 30 years. Not about his talent, just about his place of birth. He was indeed born in Buffalo, not Missouri. It also said that he had stopped playing and is (or was in 1996 at least) a baker in Maryland. What a great talent; what a shame that two albums of his original songs is all we got. Sometimes I begin to believe that this world isn't working quite right yet. . .

Dear Bart, The song that you were referring to is called: Rainy Day Women ( if my memory is still working ). I just started to perform Bride 1945 a few weeks back. You are right , what a great song. All of those World War II brides and all of the homes in Buffalo suburbs constructed in the 50's.( I grew up in one ) Each of his songs play movies in my head. He did go to Greenwich Village around 64-65 and all of his major influences were country, like Hank Snow & Hank Williams Sr. . However, he did indeed , spend some time with Dylan ( And man you can hear it clearly in Paul's writing ) and I love the story that he taught Dylan how to sing for Nashville Skyline. ( Although ,thats a hard one to verify it's a great rumour , I'd like to spread.)

Paul is working for some county in Maryland doing maintenance. I talked to him a couple of months ago, for the first time in over 25 years. One of the great singers to come out of the Village in the sixties. We used to hang out at the Kettle of Fish bar after hours and trade tunes late into the night. His versions of Hank Williams and Jimmy Rodgers tunes are burned into my brain. A great writer and singer, and a true gentleman!

I saw Paul Siebel perform on a bill with Happy and Artie Traum in Syracuse, NY in the winter of 1973. I got to sit in the front row and watch his guitar work. I found it like his lyrics, very deceptive and very good.

The person next to me during the intermit called him a Jerry Jeff Walker wannabee. So I spilled my coffee in his lap.

It was a great show.

Can anyone give a definite answer on how Paul Siebel pronounces his last name?

It should be "SEE-bull" but I have been corrected that he uses "SIGH-bull".

The NEW CD has both "Woodsmoke and Oranges" and "Jack Knife Gypsy" COMPLETE with all the songs in order, plus an unreleased song "Nervous" at the end.

Great CD plus the fidelity is quite good. British issue, I believe. (PS: note Jim Buchanan's under-rated fiddle playing on the second record)

Nashville Again   Paul Siebel

D                   G    D             G               A
It's a long way to Nashville,but I've seen that road before.
                                        D
Here's hopin' that she knows me when I stand outside her door.
          G                   A
But some wind came up this evening
       D                G                        
All the stars have gone away
             A            G         A      
And there'll be a storm before the dawn
       G          D    A   D
But I can't turn back no more.

It's been a year since I seen her,
It's been a year spent underground
I've told the wind a thousand times
I didn't mean to let her down
With promises of seasons
That all left the frozen trees
Now silent rumors tell
She's done quite well
With a new love she has found.

Interlude

If she's found herself a good deal,
well then I guess I can't complain
Just kiss her once for good luck,
ask her what might be his name.               
And we can toss'em all the good times and
seek out her rainbow signs
But I have loved too long to be that strong,
And I hope it doesn't rain.

Repeat 1st verse.

I took this off the album "Paul Siebel" I have received much help and pleasure from folks who upload lyrics and chords, so i hope this one little effort of mine makes up for it all. chuckle chuckle
and a note: i notice when i preview, that the chords are somewhat to the left of where they should be. y'all can probably figure it out when you play it.

True-love has been singing this song for many, many years. I've always loved it. He hasn't sung it for a while. He's singing it now as I post. Ahhhh!
Hildebrand also got the words from a recording. He heard it around 1970. He may have miss-heard some words but I'll post them as he heard it because some are slightly different and they seem to make sense.
He heard for the second half of the second verse:

And talk some of the good times
And look for a rainbow sign
But I've loved too long to be that strong
And I hope it doesn't rain.

Thanks for sharing Michael.

Paul Siebel was a friend of John Reigle, who used to bring him by my old apartment in Troy, NY in the mid to late '60s. We'd sit around and drink homebrew and sometimes Paul would get his guitar out and play a song. Never knew he was such a noted musician. I hope he's doing well now. I haven't seen Paul (pronounced SEE-bull) or John since those days.

- Instrumental verse -

(F) Rollers and (E)hairpins,
(Bb) She doesn't (C)care now,
(F) Harry's a (E)salesman,
(Bb) He's hardly (C)there now.
(Dm) It's all for (A)nothing,
And the (Dm)kids don't (C)care at (Bb)all,
(F) One just quit (Dm)college,
And the (Bb)youngest (C)left last (F)fall. (Gm) (C)

(F) She was so (E)young then,
(Bb) He wasn't much (C)older,
(F) He loved her (E)some then,
(Bb) He was a (C)soldier.
(Dm) She planned the (A)future,
What´s a (Dm)girl to (C)think a(Bb)bout?
(F) A home in the (Dm)suburbs,
If they could (Bb)learn to (C)do with(F)out.

Recorded a demo a few weeks ago, will probably be on my next album. Most excellent song.
