Subject: HELP!!!
From: GUEST,Peter Graham
Date: 15 Jan 02 - 10:47 PM

I am trying to find the artist/author for a song I heard some 20 years ago.

Here are a few of the lyrics I can remember.

"There are beacons to be lit There is wine to be tasted There are ???? to use and others to be wasted.

Chorus...

"There is time enough tomorrow time enough tomorrow for a sad song."

I recall that the singer was male and sounded English. (although I heard the song in Australia)

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I thought at first it sounded a lot like Bill Staines' Phoenix but the words are not the same. Sorry.

Also, it is best if you put some of the words or something more descriptive in the title. You'll get more attention that way.:-) Good luck!

On this web page, I found a recording of a song by Alex Glasgow titled "Time Enough Tomorrow." I don't know if it's your song or not. Maybe?

Wikipedia's article on Alex Glasgow gives one of his song titles as TIME ENOUGH TOMORROW (FOR A SAD SONG...). It seems very likely that this is the song Peter Graham wanted.

TIME ENOUGH TOMORROW is on Alex Glasgow's album "Songs Vol 1 & 2" available from MWM Records - Mawson & Wareham (Music) Ltd, of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK.

I couldn't find any lyrics or sound samples.

Those words are certainly part of 'Timne Enough Tomorrow' by Alex Glasgow. I have the record and will type up the lyrics for you this evening if I get a chance.

Ok, its a bit tricker than I thought because the lyrics were not printed on the sleeve or on a separate piece of paper, so I will have to transcribe it. I can't do that tonight but will try to do it over the weekend.

There are beacons to be lit,
There is wine to be tasted,
There are hours to use
That yesterday were wasted.
And there's time enough tomorrow,
Time enough tomorrow,
There is time enough tomorrow
For a sad song.

There's the wind through the trees,
There are apples to be gathered,
There are hands to touch
And colours to be savoured
And there's time enough tomorrow,
Time enough tomorrow,
There is time enough tomorrow
For a sad song.

Another day to live
Another day to wait expecting
Another day to smile at
A stranger unsuspecting
And there's time enough tomorrow,
Time enough tomorrow,
There is time enough tomorrow
For a sad song.

Another day to sing
Another day to fling the clouds aside
Another day to cling to
The love that lies beside you
And there's time enough tomorrow,
Time enough tomorrow,
There is time enough tomorrow
For a sad song.

And there's time enough tomorrow,
Time enough tomorrow,
There is time enough tomorrow
For a sad song.
And there's time enough tomorrow,
Time enough tomorrow,
There is time enough tomorrow
For a sad song.
And there's time enough tomorrow,
Time enough tomorrow,
There is time enough tomorrow
For a sad song.

Thanks, DMcG. By the way, did you notice I had revived a 4-year-old thread? I hope you still consider your work worthwhile. I appreciate it, even if Peter Graham isn't around to notice. It looks like he only posted once--unless, of course, he used a different name.

Well, Jim, it may have taken 10 years but a moment ago I wanted these lyrics and thought "I bet they are on Mudcat somewhere". So the effort of transcribing it was worth while after all!

Though its years since I played the album I can 'picture' Alex Glasgow singing that and reading the words now think I might just learn it.

There could well be many songs we heard back when which may now have more significance.
