Subject: Lyr Add: ROUND AND ROUND (Harvey Andrews)
From: GUEST,guest;harvey andrews

I posted a verse a few days ago, but can't locate the original thread to answer queries. I was so moved by the opinions of many of you and the struggle to make sense of what has occurred and will occur that the verse came into my head and I posted it anonymously as soon as it was written. I subsequently said anyone could make up their own tune or incorporate it as they wished. I still say that to the two people who asked and anyone else who wishes to use it in their own way. I've found that I can sing it myself to a simple tune as a round;

young men die
mothers mourn
fathers weep
children born
stories told
vengeance sworn
(then back to the original tune and words and repeat twice, resolving the melody on the third "Young men die, mothers mourn") I'm trying it out tonight. So I should own up . Harvey Andrews. c. Haska Music.

Harvey, thanks for giving us someone to credit this to. Your first thread is here. I shared it with my family and they were all quite moved by it. It has a simple beauty and truth to it. Thanks for sharing it.

All right Harvey what tune do you use? I'd like to hear it. I found a tune coming to my head when I read it but it never resolves.

When I performed it in Monmouth I sang it as a two verse round

Young men die, mothers mourn
fathers weep, children born
stories told,vengeance sworn

Then, instead of resolving it as you would a four line verse I went back to the top; young men die, mothers mourn
fathers weep, childen born
stories told, vengeance sworn

then I resolved it;
young men die, mothers mourn

I hope this helps. Please use your own tune.
