Subject: Gardens/Up and Down
From: Rowana (at work)
Date: 20 Aug 01 - 02:59 PM

I don't know the name nor does anything pop up in DigiTrad when I type key phrases. I've heard it called "Gardens" and "Up and Down". Here are wome of the words:

For days and for weeks as I go up and down
There are many gardens all about the town.

One that's gay with daffodils
One with children playing
One that's white with cherry flowers
One that's red with bay.

Can anyone provide more info?

Hello, Rowena here's the version of "Gardens" as I know it -sung by the McCalmans, don't know who wrote it, I have no further information on it. Just know that it is one of my favourite songs.


CHORUS: For day's work and week's work,
As I go up and down,
There are many gardens all about the town.
For day's work and week's work,
As I go up and down,
There are many gardens all about the town.

1. One that's gay with daffodils,
One where children play,
One white with cherry flow'r
Another red with may. CHORUS

2. A kitten and a lilac bush,
Bridal white and tall,
And later crimson ramblers
Against a granite wall. CHORUS

3. I have passed your railings,
When you never knew
And people who have gardens
I give my thanks to you. CHORUS^^

Herma, I'm actually listening to that CD right now. When the song came on I remembered that this song appears on a tape I picked up in Scotland of a female singer accompanied on a Welsh Triple Harp. On that tape the song was called "Up and Down". I also remember hearing the song on the radio back in the late sixties.

I believe that it is either by; or was collected by, a lady called Marjorie Kennedy Fraser, try looking her up and see what you can find that way. I also think that it is called "People who have gardens"

Song is called "To People Who Have Gardens" It was written by Agnes Mure Mackenzie of Stornoway.

I have it in a small book which probably dates from the late '50s or early '60s I believe that it first appeared in a publication called "The Sphere and The Graphic"

We recorded it about 10 or 12 years ago, after hearing The McCalmans do it.

Hope this is of some help.

Lyrics and musical notation for this song can be seen in Songs of the Hebrides, Vol. 3 collected and arranged by Marjory Kennedy-Fraser and Kenneth Macleod (London: Boosey & Co., 1921), page 89.

Here's what's printed at the top of that page:

TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE GARDENS
Words by Agnes Mure Mackenzie of Stornoway.
Air from Marion Macleod of Eigg.
Arranged for voice and piano by Marjory Kennedy-Fraser.

The lyrics are identical to those posted by Herma above.
