Wow! August and September were really full of new Mudcatter songs, so, I'm starting Part XI of the Additions thread since Part X was getting rather long. I'm hoping that you all can keep it up the good work for the rest of the year ;-)

I've just added Bowling With Rutabagaas by Amos to the Songbook. It's in the 'Thread Songs' category, so go and check it out and see why Amos is rolling his 'roots'!! ;-) Thanks for answering the call once again, Brother A. *BG*

Keep writing, playing and singing Mudcatters!

All the best, Áine

And here's one I wrote on another thread a few days ago:

I'll Tell You 'Bout Life In The Country

I'm not sure if it's rabbits or gentry he'd like to hunt. Both I imagine. (Just because you write a song you don't have the last word on what it means.) As for tunes, it works OK with "Dick Darby" or "Botany Bay".

New words by Steve Freedman circa 1987

Song posted to the Mudcat Songbook
Note
This was written one night whilst attempting to sleep in the car at Whitby FF.   There really was a pub called (something like) the Duke of Wellington in Whitby. The age of the song can be deduced from its reference to 'opening time', a concept now lost in the mists of history.

Aine (çine), here is the embedded-chord lyric file you requested for my Christmas carol.

(BTW, you don't have a Christmas category or a Holiday category in the songbook, so I'm not sure where Christmas carols go. "Inspiration" would seem fine for inspirational carols. But where would you put a "Rudolf, The Red-Nosed Reindeer" or "Jingle-Bell Rock" type Christmas song or a funny carol that wasn't a parody?)

I just love Steve Freedman's Ranzo, Benbow (in fact I sang it at the Cat & Fiddle last week).
I recently heard a song that I reckon should be included here. It was written by Liz Merton, Mary Hubble and Ruth Birnie during a long drive home to Wellington (New Zealand) from a folk festival in Hamilton. They started thinking, "What if all the folkies that they know and love all booked into the same old folks home?"
It's sung to the tune of 'The Apprentice Song'.

Old Folkie's Home          Merton, Hubble & Birnie

Come on Folkies, bring your music,
Leave the suburbs to your kids.
Here's a home for your retirement,
You can jam all day instead.
Keep your eyes on the older folkies,
They're the ones who know their stuff.
One day you will play like they do,
If you stay here long enough!

Come on Folkies, bring your songbooks,
Just in case your memory fades.
Bring your CDs, tapes and records (& mini discs and DVDs)
And be sure they will be played.
Never mind if the volume's fading,
Hearing aids are all the rage.
We'll still party to the small ones,
Celebrate our growing age.

Wake up dear, it's time to party,
Here's the gear to change your drip.
Fill the damn thing up with whiskey
And we'll have a groovey trip.
Nearly time for this evening's ceilidh,
Are your wheelchair's brakes alright?
Don't want any nasty crashes,
No more skid marks, like last night.

Rediscover your libido
when you lose the stress and strain.
Double rooms are there for sharing,
Lots of time for fun and games.
People say 'Life begins at 40'
Here you'll see the living proof.
Practise makes your playing polished,
Let us pity callow youth.

Hey, Little Robyn - glad you like the song and that you're singing it. Thanks for the compliment!

Could this Cat & Fiddle be the one in Boreham Wood, Herts? This was my brother's local when he was a Sixth-Former (MANY years ago).

This one's good too. Merton, Hubble & Birnie sound like a firm of solicitors!

Grossosity! by reggie miles

There ya go, 'Cats -- Have fun!

All the best, Áine

(P.S. to Little Robyn -- The Mudcat Songbook is dedicated to the songs and musical creations of Mudcatters (those brave souls who frequent this nest of musical noodling). I post those songs which I have permission to post. So, unless all three of the authors of Old Folkie's Home are Mudcatters AND personally give me their permission to post the song to the Songbook, then I'm afraid I have to decline to do so. But thanks for thinking of us! ;-) )

And from the stil-fevered mind of the author of Grossosity!, our own reggie miles, I've just added a rather pleasant little diddy in the Parodies Category entitled Do You Know The Way To Macramé? -- and I promise, you'll never hear that 'other' version the same way again! Thanks, reggie -- I like this last one alot! ;-)

Keep playing, singing and writing, 'Catters!!

Margaret's Song



(Margaret will be 80 in April. In her life she has made of herself a remarkable person, a skilled carpenter, a sharpshooter, an accomplished computer guru, jeweler par excellence, a first-rate cook and charming hostess, a law-enforcement officer, an artist of life. This is a small token of appreciation for someone who constantly brightens the corner where she is and shows the world what it means to live with genuine style.)

Not to worry -- the GG works in mysterious ways but she always comes through!!

Listening to 'A Letter from Lilac Acres' (Jed Marum) I kept thinking that it needed a reply from Louisa's spouse- and the more times I have
heard it the more I felt the need.

Tho' the deed wasn't done in an attempt at flattery - , it is definately imitative, downright plageristic in many ways. This is the text I came up with - using Jed's tune and the same format:

When our fingers, they entwine, my bonnie lassie-o.


May I look into your eyes, my bonnie lassie-o?
May I look into your eyes, my bonnie lassie-o?
Let me look into your eyes, where my heart it softly lies
As we stand beneath the skies, my bonnie lassie-o.


May I kiss upon your lips, my bonnie lassie-o?
May I kiss upon your lips, my bonnie lassie-o?
May I kiss upon your lips? My heartbeat lightly skips
When I hold you close to me, my bonnie lassie-o.


Will you have this dance with me, my bonnie lassie-o?
Will you have this dance with me, my bonnie lassie-o?
If you'll have this dance with me, We will float upon the sea
As I hold you in my arms, my bonnie lassie-o.


Do you wish to wed with me, my bonnie lassie-o?
Do you wish to wed with me, my bonnie lassie-o?
If you wish to wed with my, my heart will happy be

On The Dole Again
(tune: On The Road Again by Willie Nelson)



On the dole again
Well this morning I'm on the dole again
Now here I am standin' in the queue with my friends
Dancing down the street with my pay in hand
On the dole again
Huntin' jobs in places I ain't never been
Seein' things I don't want to see again
And so here I am on the dole again.

On the dole again
I flipped some burgers in McDonald's today
Me and Big Macs are the best of friends
The bosses insist it must be done their way
Or its the highway
And on the dole again
Well, here I am back on the dole again
Standin' here in the queue with my old friends
And tellin' the clerk why I'm back on the dole again

On the dole again
Scrapin' up some money just to pay my rent
Me and the landlord are best of friends
He insists that I pay him every cent
And out I went
Back on the dole again

Well this morning I'm on the dole again
Me and the clerk have become the best of friends
He insists I stay in line with the other men
As we wait there to pick up our dole again
Back on the dole again.

FREEDOM ROAD

      
(G) I don't want to tie you down,
Don't (C) want to cramp your (G) style.
(D) I just want to hang around,
And (C) be with you a (G) while.
So if I (G) whisper "I love you"
As (C) I beside you lay,
It doesn't (G) mean that I'll stop you
When the (D7) road calls you a-(G) way. Oh

CHORUS:
Freedom (D) Road, Freedom (D7) Road: it's the (C) life you love to (G) follow,
Freedom (D) Road, Freedom (D7) Road will urge you (G) on.
Freedom (D) Road, Freedom (D7) Road, will (C) call you one to-(G) morrow,
Freedom (D) Road, Freedom (D7) Road, then you'll be (G) gone.

You have many roads to travel,
Many people yet to meet,
Many myst'ries to unravel,
Many journeys to complete.
So when you feel the need to move,
As I know you will one day,
Just remember those who love you
As you travel on your way, down

CHORUS

If some day you find yourself
Down this way again,
Please drop by and ring my bell-
I'll always be your friend.
And if you ever want someone
To join you on the road,
I could jump on board your wagon
And together we could roam!

CHORUS

Freedom Road, Freedom Road, then we'll be gone!

MIghty nice song, there Jay. ANd you raise an interesting point (probably in all innocence) about the fate of the Mudcat Songbook itself. The beautiful, witty, and effervecent Presence who founded said songbook, known hereabout as Áine, or The Gaelic Goddess, ran off with a wayward Gypsy train about three years back, and has not been heard from in the ranks of civilization (as we know it) since.

But there is no reason why fine songs should not continue to be added to this thread, even though they can't be transferred over to the Songbook she built on another server.

THE DEVIL'S VOYAGE
(K Tomlinson 2006)

The cruiser Indianapolis left San Francisco Bay,
With the Little Boy on board, to the west she sailed away,
Headed for the Philippines, as the 'Japs' already knew,
Bad luck for Captain McVeigh and for his 1200 crew.

Out from Hiroshima, Pearl of the Inland Sea,
Slipped submarine I-58 of the Japanese Navy,
Commander Hashimoto had orders short and clear,
Sink the cruiser. Stop the Little Boy from coming here.

The sub, it lay in ambush across the cruiser's course,
And every day they waited the tension it grew worse,
Until after 14 long & weary days and nights,
The cruiser Indianapolis steamed straight into their sights.

Indianapolis died quickly, with her went 300 crew,
Dragged down with her forever in the deep Pacific blue,
900 more went overboard, clinging to rafts and floats.
There'd been no time for SOS, no time to launch the boats,

All on an empty ocean and beneath an empty sky,
The men left in the water struggled to survive
Some died of wounds, some died from thirst, the sharks killed many fast,
Two-thirds of them had died when rescue came at last.

The sinking was small victory, for just two days before,
The cruiser'd docked at Tinian, put Little Boy on shore,
They'd flown him to Hiroshima and set his fury free,
And the light of a thousand suns destroyed the Pearl of the Inland Sea.

Tune – Rounding of the Horn

In August 2017 it was announced that the wreck of the Indianapolis
had been found, three miles down in the Pacific. It prompted my memory for this song that I wrote after reading the book of the same name by
Jack L Chalker. Reading the book was prompted by a bit of dialogue by
Robert Shaw's character in the film JAWS. See also the song 'Captain Mcvay's Lament' already on Mudcat
