Subject: Euphoria--Holy Modal Rounders
From: Orpheum
Date: 14 Apr 02 - 08:39 PM

Hello, I am fairly new to the Mudcat discussions, but I have enjoyed the list as a resource for lyrics for some time. I did a master's in folklore at UNC with an emphasis in religious folk song, the northern equivalent of the Sacred Harp in 1840s Maine (I wrote on DH Mansfield's American Vocalist), so if anyone ever needs a something from northern hymnals, I may have it in my collection.

I have a weirder request. I am doing a lecture on folk revival things and am planning to do "Euphoria." I understand Peter Stampfel wrote another verse about the darker sides of drug abuse. Does anyone have the verse?

Thanks much,

David in Syracuse

I have three:

Ma's in the kitchen... There's a man in there underneath the table... and I pinched Eve on the bottom.

It is an odd lecture, covering things from union and Civil Rights songs to Child ballads (I figure Bo Lamkin ought to wake up undergrads), to countercultural things. But I'm nervous that by singing Euphoria I might seem to condone drug abuse. If Stampfel has written his own antidote that would help the song work in the lecture.

Thanks,

David

I don't know whether this will help but what I've got is "Dad's upstairs and the dog's tail's twitchin'; Ma's downstairs bitchin' in the kitchen; I'm up here kickin' the gong for Euphoria...Chorus. If you have other verses, I'd like them, myself.

Know Peter, have LPs, have sung song for eons. Only those three verses I know of but he is capable of almost anything, so a fourth (or more) is entirely possible.

If you see this Peter, I STILL have your Dorthea Lange book I've been holding for you since 1965!

It's okay, man -- go ahead and sing it to the undergrads with a clear caveat up front: " THIS SONG COMES FROM 1964. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME OR IN YOUR OWN TIME_STREAM!"

LOL!

Then you can put one at the end that says "Please note: No real brain cells were damaged in the performance of this song. Let's keep it that way!!"

I don't know of any other verses, though!!

Regards,

A.

I didn’t have a clue what you guys were talking about, so I went out and found this on the ‘Net.
Copied from http://www.guitaretab.com/gtab/t/10290
If you have a better version, feel free to post it.

EUPHORIA
(Robin Remaily)
ARTIST: Leftover Salmon
ALBUM: Euphoria

G  E7  A7  D7
G
Well Ma's out there, twitchin' in the kitchen
E7
Dad's in the living room, fussin' and a-bitchin'
A7 D7 G G F# F
I'm out here, kicking the gong for... Euphoria!

CHORUS:
E7
Euphoria - When your mind starts reelin' and a-rockin;
A7
Your inside voice starts squealing and squawking
D7 G
Floatin' around on a belladonna cloud, singin'... Euphoria!

There's a man in the corner sittin' underneath the table
Sad, makin' faces at a union label
Grittin' his ears and he rolled his eyes and hollerin'... Euphoria! CHORUS

Patted Eve on the bottom, patted Adam on the back
Smiled at the serpent and the serpent smiled back
Took a bite of the apple, two bites gone, hollerin'... Euphoria! CHORUS

Stampfel's additional, darker verse goes like this:

Went for a walk and I just got back
I saw a junkie mother boosting* Similac**
With a baby in her arms
And her arms full of tracks
Euphoria!


* Shoplifting
** a brand of powdered formula milk for babies

Always worth a listen to the Holy Modal Rounders. Just three verses here, words slightly different from above.

Later version (1978?) with Robin Remailly and yet another verse -

I believe they recorded three different versions, the first being in 1964 (Ross's first Youtube link above), when they were a duo, the second being the more joyful, raucous-sounding 1978 version and the "darker" version on the 1999 album 'Too Much Fun'. I like to think hindsight and bitter experience had a part to play in including the darker side of drug use in the later version.
