Subject: Lyr Add: YOU'LL GET NO MORE OF ME (Hazel Dickens^^
From: Joe Offer
Date: 07 Mar 98 - 07:55 PM

This is what I've been able to extract so far from recordings of this song from Hazel Dickens and the Lyn Morris Band. Can anybody correct my mistakes? Thanks.
-Joe Offer-

YOU'LL GET NO MORE OF ME
(Hazel Dickens/Happy Valley Music BMI)

As you go from me, you want all that's left,
The last thread of pride in my heart.
'Til you've wrung the last teardrop from my eye,
You won't be satisfied.
[Chorus]
So, take your cold, unloving heart,
Your eyes too blinded to see
Oh, you never found the door to this heart of mine,
You'll get no more of me.
You have raked my heart like a cruel winter storm,
Bending my branches so low.
Oh, your wayward heart and your tortured soul
Leave no memory worthy to hold
[Chorus]

So, I'll take back my heart from the $%^&*# (wh-something)
I'll hang my tears out to dry.
And I'll hang my head in sorrow no more,
And no more tears will I cry.
[Chorus]

JRO ^^

willow bound/willow down/willow downed/willow bough??? Willow fits the theme of the second verse~~after 10 or 15 stabs at the Lynn Morris version, and thinking about it a while longer, I think that bough must be the second word.

I copied the words from the same Lynn Morris recording (what a great song, thanks again Hazel!) and got this, which is not too different from yours:

(G) As you go from me, you want all that's left
The (D) last thread of pride in my (G) heart
'Til you've wrung the last teardrop from my eyes
You (D) won't be satisfied.

So (G) take your cold, unloving heart
Your eyes too blinded to see
You've never found the door to this heart of mine
You'll (D) get no more of me.

You wrecked my heart like a cruel winter storm
Bending my branches so low
Oh, your wayward heart and your tortured soul
Leave no memory worthy at all.

So I'll take back my heart from the willow bough
I'll hang my tears out to dry
I'll hang my head in sorrow no more
No more tears will I cry.

We played the song on the guitar and my husband says it might sound better with these chords in the chorus:

So(C)take your cold, un(G)loving heart Your(C)eyes too blinded to(G)see You've never found the door to this heart of mine You'll(D)get no more of(G)me

Try it and let me know if you like it or not.

Robin

Actually, I play the chorus chords differently from my husband, and we have an ongoing dispute about this! What he does is what I gave you, and what I do is this:

So (G) take your cold (C) un - (G) loving heart / Your eyes too blind (C) - ed to (G) see

These fast C changes are the disputed ones. Since he's been playing various instruments for 30 years or so, and since I've just taken up the guitar and fiddle in the last 5 or so, I bowed to the stronger opinion. I also usually make all the D's in the key of G into D7, and many bluegrassers avoid 7ths like the plague. (Another strong difference of opinion around our house). Of course, I'm dealing with a banjo player, which adds a different dimension to every musical argument!

Don't have an instrument with me at the moment, but will try your way! Yes, this forum is lots of fun (and addicting) and there's always someone to answer your questions somewhere in the world. Ah, technology.

Listened to the recording again (which Lynn Morris does in Bb, by the way) and the family guess of what THEY do in the chorus is that she does a 4-finger G chord on guitar but alternates the two low strings between the C and G chord positions, while he plays a C on bass. Sort of a moving dissonance, or a little of both at the same time.
