Subject: Lyr Add: I'VE WAITED AS LONG AS I CAN (Hylo Brown)
From: Jim Dixon

The album you're referring to is "The Diamond Mountain Sessions" (2001) by "Sharon Shannon and Friends." One cut is called "Say You Love Me" and the "friend" involved is Dessie O'Halloran, who sings lead vocal.

I've listened to a sound sample, and as far as I can tell, it's the same as an old bluegrass song called "I've Waited As Long As I Can" by Hylo Brown, and originally recorded by Hylo Brown and the Timberliners in 1959.

Nevertheless, it's an interesting arrangement. You've got Irish musicians playing a bluegrass song in a Cajun style!

I'VE WAITED AS LONG AS I CAN
(Hylo Brown)

I've waited for you and I've always been true,
But this waiting no longer I can stand.
I know you've had time, dear, to make up your mind.
I've waited as long as I can.

CHORUS: I've waited to hear you say you love me,
And longed for the day you'd take my hand.
I asked again last night for your love so divine.
I've waited as long as I can.

Done all I can do; said all I can say.
Oh, why can't I make you understand?
I've wanted you for mine but I've wasted my time.
I've waited as long as I can. CHORUS

Now I'll jut say goodbye. The tears fall from my eyes,
For you have made it plain that I can't win.
No one will ever know the pain that I've been through.
I've waited as long as I can. CHORUS

Re-I've waited as long as I can.   Numerous Irish and Scottish acts have been recording this song as "Say You Love Me" and spuriously claiming it as trad. Maybe its worth somebody recording the history of this Hylo Brown song.   There have been a few hit versions in Ireland when the song was suddenly re-discovered and recorded in different styles by Country and easy artistes. Somewhere along the line somebody didn't pay any attention to the real title of the song or its copyright and called it 'say you love me'. The publishers are American - and obviously will not know what has gone on. The organisations who administer royalty payments and claims have a problem, as there are numerous songs already called 'say you love me'.   So poor Hylo Brown has been losing out on his song.   If it had stayed correctly ttitled as 'I've waited as long as I can', it wouldn't be so much of a problem - but now its gone out falsely titled as Trad. and under a common title, it's snowballed.   Is Hylo Brown still alive? If not his relatives still deserve the royalties he has been unintentionally done out of!

I looked into other links on Mudcat's site and note that Hylo Brown only died in 2003. So this song is a modern copyright, and numerous Scottish and Irish artistes who are recording it as trad. under the wrong title should feel guilty!

Hi,
I have the original Capitol single and Hylo Brown is the only name attached to the tune. It's very different from the Dessie O'Halloran version.
