DT Lyrics:





Subject: Lyr Req: Along the Road of Time
From: Jeri
Date: 21 Aug 01 - 01:34 PM

I was just called by a friend of mine who'd been e-mailed by a friend of his who was looking for the words to this song. I said "no problem." (Famous last words.) Now I can't find it in the DT or past discussions, and the recording I have it on has apparently has slipped through a wormhole or been carried off by faeries or something.

Does anyone out there have the words? Please?

Jeri, we may have a small problem. According to what I found, Jimmie Driftwood wrote Along the Road of Time; the only thing Webber did that is remotely similar is All Along the Rossendale. I didn't find lyrics for either of them..........

I may have the name wrong, but I don't think so. I've been looking around and can't find any evidence that Dave Webber recorded it. I wonder who has? Johnny Collins maybe?

What I can remember of the chorus:
(Something about friends this and friends that)
We'll raise a glass of wine.
Here's hoping that we meet again,
Along the road of time.

BAM!!! Got it! The clue provided by Sorcha was that the name of the song wasn't what I'd thought. It's called "The Parting Song," and I'll either find the lyrics in the forum or post 'em. It's on Johnny Collins's "Now & Then," which I was inexplicably able to find.

Answering my own request here. Duh. Tune is forthcoming.

PARTING SONG
Dave Webber

Soon the morning sun will rise,
And dawn will bathe the sky.
There's time for just one parting song,
Before we say goodbye.

Chorus:
So sing together one and all,
And raise a glass of wine,
Here's hoping we will meet again,
Along the road of time.


We've shared our stories, yours and mine,
We've shared our hopes and fears.
With memories of distant youth,
We've both rolled back the years.

The ever-turning, fateful wheel,
Must cause our ways to part.
And bringing untold mysteries,
Another day will start.

For from endings come beginnings,
From the old shall come the new,
With hopes for tomorrow,
We'll see our parting through.

Transcribed from the singing of Johnny Collins on "Now & Then." From the notes to the CD, Dave wrote this "...as a memorial to a dear friend, now departed."

It's also available on the 1993 CD called Together - Solo, by Dave Webber and Anni Fentiman. I had trouble understanding some of the lyrics, so I'm glad you transcribed it, Jeri. Here's what's said in the CD booklet:
Dave was having a very long and honest conversation with a very close friend in the small hours of the morning when the realisation dawned that time was running out. It was the last conversation of its kind that they were to have, and Dave wrote this song in memory of a true friend and to serve as a parting song for any circumstance.
Dedicated to the memory of John Purdy of Torquay (1927-1993)

Hope you added than information, Joe. Thank you.

BTW, Dave Webber and Anni Fentiman also sing in the chorus on the Johnny Collins recording, and Dave produced it.

So grateful someone wrote down the lyrics & saved me having to stop/strat my lady of Autumn CD. Such a beautiful song. In company with my partner I want to sing it at my retirement bash next month.

Hearing Dave and Annie (and the audience) do this live is thrilling. It brings a tear to the eye of this jaded old folkie.
