Subject: LYRICS: YODELING SONGS
From: GARYD
Date: 29 Jul 98 - 10:55 PM

Hello again!..It's been a long time..glad to be back..

I recently saw a great documentary on yodeling a few weeks ago as a tribute to Patsy Montana. The songs I heard were by Swiss style yodelers fom New Glarus Wisconsin, and the great country yodelers Elton Britt, Montana Slim (Wilf Carter), Jimmie Rodgers, and others.

I yodel at local jams, & have lost the words to those songs I heard years ago. If any of you could give me lyrics to the following, I would appreciate it. I searched DT & no luck... Thanks..P.S. Thanks to you guys who set up DT..I downloaded It with my Mac & it's wonderful, complete with the sound!

Lyrics needed for:

Sleep Baby Sleep...Jimmie Rodgers Waitin' for a train.. same Blue yodel no 11..... same My little old home in New Orleans.. same Sadie..... Montana Slim or Elton Britt She taught me to yodel...? My Swiss Moonlight Lullaby..Montana Slim Rocking over River.. Les Wilson.

Also: Anybody ever been to New Glarus Wisconsin for Chees Days?...Where abouts is it?... I live in MN & would be great fun to visit... Thanks, Gary

Hi, Gary - I haven't been there since I was a teenager, but I remember New Glarus as a pretty little town - and I remember quite distinctly that one of the main drags in town is called Shake-Rag Street (but my memory is fading, and that street could be in another little burg in that area). It's just south of Madison, so it shouldn't be too much of a drive for you. Hey, they have an annual Polkafest, too. I'd like to go to that one.

All right, gang!... How about it? You going to get me the words to those yodeling songs? Not much help last time..(course I was detained from checking each day, either!...Strange as it seems, I guess I "do" have a life beyond this lovely machine!

I am still attempting to get words for yodeling tunes.. I've laid in the weeds for months now, but finally got to Mudcat again. Surely there is more than Joe and I who are interested in Yodeling... Is anyone out there the least bit knowledgeable about the words to those songs? Or at least can you provide a site where I can find them? Oh dee Oh lay dee who! Gary

I've just been listening to a CD by Jimmie Rodgers 'the singing cowboy' just for the yodels..and here it is as a thread...mmmm.Spooky...x file material.

So people still actually yodel out there without wearing liederhosen....Unfortunately Gary there are no words with the CD but Jimmie sounds like he's singing 'and your old lady to !' to a couple of them.

Good luck

Gary D,

Here is one of the songs you seek.  I extracted this from
Cowpie, a wonderful site for C & W style music.

WAITING FOR A TRAIN
words and music by Jimmie Rodgers
1929

F        C7        F        F7
All around the water tank
Bb             Bbm F
Waiting for a train
    Bb                     F             Dm
A thousand miles away from home
G7                   C7
Sleeping in the rain

  F              C7   F
I walked up to a brakeman
F7 Bb                  Bbm F      
To give him a line of talk
      Bb                       F
He says, "If you've got money
    G7         C7          F
I'll see that you don't walk."
             C7    F
I haven't got a nickel
F7      Bb             A7
Not a penny can I show
     Bb                    F
He said, "Get off, you railroad bum."
            G7               C7        F
And he slammed the box car door
(yodel)
F   C7   F          C7    F

C7  F         C7   F
He put me off in Texas
F7  Bb     Bbm  F
A place I surely love
         Bb                F   
Wide open spaces 'round me
       G7                     C7
The moon and stars above
     F      C7          F
Nobody seems to want me
F7 Bb                  Bbm  F
Or lend me a helping hand
      Bb                      F
I'm on my way from Frisco
        G7        C7    F
Goin' back to Dixieland
                C7         F
My pocket book is empty
F7         Bb                      A7
And my heart is filled with pain
        Bb                      F
I'm a thousand miles away from home
        G7       C7    F
Just waiting for a train

I always thought that yodelling and lyrics were mutually exclusive.

Joe,

Thanks for the link to New Glarus. Sure it has polkas, but the really big festivals are the Heidi Festival in early summer and the Wilhelm Tell Festival on Labor Day weekend. That 's when the big outdoor theater productions (of Heidi and Wm. Tell) take place and the locals all wear Swiss costumes down to their knees so they don't have to change outfits for the evening show. Cheese Days, alas, is not a New Glarus event. Cheese Days is celebrated in Monroe (about 15 miles south of New Glarus on Hiway 69) in the fall of alternate years. The "modern" Cheese Days was ressurected in the mid 1960's. I only know this because I graduated from Monroe High School in 1965 and my dad continued to live there until 1974.

This brings us to Shake Rag Street in Mineral Point, Wis! It was lead (aka mineral) mining that brought the first group of settlers to Mineral Point. Many of the first group dug into the hjillside and lived in the "badger" holes they dug, giving Wisconsin is Badger State nickname. In a few years Cornish hard rock miners moved in and brought their superior technology and experience. Shake Rag Street got its name from the habit of the miners wives going out of their houses along the street and waving pieces of cloth to their husbands on the opposite hillside to summon them to eat. The street is a tourist attraction today and some of the old Cornish houses have been restored.

I guess it is one of my duties in life to badger "Badger Joe" about the badger holes in the "Badger State Lore" file in his software. It seems that if you've got a computer on the left coast that was programed from the right coast, hten the middle coast sometimes gets squished.

Spent many a happy hour playing snooker in a bar in Monroe back in the 40's & 50's. also filled up on Swiss cheese. Had an indoor rifle league during the winters back then. Monroe, Madison, Janesville, Beloit, County Line(Evansville mostly) and Rockford, IL. Host team served the food and the Monroe cheesmakers in the crowd brought some of the best.

Gary,

I know you didn't ask and you probably already know how good the original Sons of the Pioneers were but if not I would recomend a recording of remasters from 1935-38. The band is Len Slye (Roy Rogers)Bob Nolan, Hugh and Carl Farr, and Tim Spencer. This was before Roy became King of the Cowboys, Their harmony yodels made anything else of the day sound bland. Especially on "Way Out There". The Farr brothers are so good you would swear it was Django Reinhardt (sp?) and Stephan Grappelli (sp?)

June 18-19 will be the second annual Tribute to Patsy Montana at the Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View, Arkansas. She was a native of Jessieville, AR. Last year's special guests were Liz Masterson and Sean Blackburn, Blue Stem, and Michael Losey Montana. I don't know yet who is scheduled to be there this year.

The Elton Britt Tribute is scheduled for July 30-31. He was born in Marshall, AR. Kerry Christensen and The Hammer Sisters were there last year.

Both events are well worth attending, but then so is just about any night during the season, April through October.

I think I *may* have "She Taught Me to Yodel." I heard it myself in the late 40's (?) or early 50's I guess, loved it, have been looking for it. But it's going to take a real dig thru my tapes. E-mail me or Bill D (my husband, who gets on Mudcat a lot oftener than I do) if you haven't heard in a week or so.

Can you find and check a list of song titles on Kathy Fink and Marcy Marxer's CD's and tapes? They do a lot of good old yodeling songs.

Anita Carter - Freight Train Blues

Patsy Montana - If I Could Only Learn to Yodel

Subject: Lyr Add: THE YODELLING HILLBILLY^^
From: Craig
Date: 01 Mar 99 - 09:54 PM

Here's a little song a friend of mine named Elda Hall sang at our talent show last Fall.

THE YODELLING HILLIBILLY

I yodel in the mountains,
I yodel in the hills,
I yodel on the radio,
That's how I pay my bill.

If you will listen closely,
I will tell you this,
If you will listen closely,
I will imitate a Swiss.

Eydely aidely ohdely aidely eydely aidely dee,
Eydely aidely dee ohdely aidely dee,
Eydely aidely ohdely aidely eydely aidely dee,
eydely aidely dee dee dee dee

Eyde oh-lo-oo, whee-deedlee-de-deeoh, lee-oh-oo, dee-oh, lee-oh-oo-dee.
Eyde oh-lo-oo, whee-deedlee-de-deeoh, lee-oh-oo, dee-oh, lee-oh-oo-dee.

Here's a story I will tell,
'Bout my Rocky Mountain gal,
She was everything to me my very life.
We had smiles and we had tears,
And for 27 years,
She had promised me someday she'd be my wife.

Whith the ceremony planned,
I had bought the wedding band,
And unvited all the neighbors from the farms.
But, the day we were to wed,
I got tired and stayed in bed.
Now the whole durn countryside is up in arms.

Chorus:
Oh, they're burnin' down the house I was brought u-u-p in,
And they're shouting come on out and take your bride.
Oh, they're burnin' down the house I was brought u-u-p in,
What a fool I'd be if I went outside.

Oh, they brought along their lunch,
And I guess the whole durn bunch,
Thinks they're goin' to sit around and starve me out.
But inside I've got a cow,
And she's courtin' roastbeef now,
So you see they don't know what it's all about.

Oh, to me it's all a joke,
I can stand a lot of smoke.
In the firemen's band I used to play trombone.
But, they've got me on the spot,
And it's gettin' mighty hot,
But to me this burnin' shack is home sweet home.

Repeat Chorus and end with yodel.

She remembered hearing it on the radio about *& years ago.

Because the thread is a list of yodeling songs, and anyone looking for them in a forum search will open this thread-- there are a lot of compilation threads here of songs about various topics or by various artists or highlighting classics/favorites of particlar genres. It's an accumulating resource to people interested in the subject of the compilation-- a catalogue of sorts. They emerge over time as people think of new ideas or examples.

Back at Record Lady.... they're everywhere! In 'Ding Dong Bells' (Kenny Roberts) you've got a smooth vocal that slips into a chiming bell... that slips into a yodel. Amazing. Also a cute lyric. He refers to "Those ding-dong bells," but I think it's a euphemism for those g-d bells....

Hi, my name is Les (from England)
I learned these words to 'The Cobbler' song way back in the 50s and have sang them many, many times over the years.
I didn't know there were so many people interested in yodelling until I came upon your page.
Just in case anyone is interested, I have typed in the words. I sure hope someone can come up with a recording of it.
If I remember rightly, I think it was recorded by Harry Wulson.
I hope someone, somewhere can use and enjoy the song as much as I have.
                  Thanks for listening
                     
                  Les (the Brit)



THE COBBLER

I started my life as a cobbler
Working from morning till night
To earn a good honest living
I've struggled hard all my life
Now the years when I was single
I wish that I had been wed
So a nice little widow some morning
Would bring up my breakfast to bed

With a twi ey ti iddle ey
and a whack fal ey doodle ey ay
With a whack fal ey doodle ey addie
With a whack fal ey doodle ey ay

Yodel

Well I think I will put up my shutters
cos the business is getting quite dull
I can't make enough for tobacco -
It's driving me up the pole
So to all of those Government skivvies
and the people that tax you so well
If I had my own way with the blighters
I'd drop 'em right down in the well

With a twi ey ti iddle ey
and a whack fal ey doodle ey ay
With me last and me tacks and me hammer
I'd yodel my worries away

Yodel

The Origin of Yodeling.

Have you ever wondered where and how yodeling began?

Many years ago a man was traveling through the mountains of Switzerland. Nightfall was rapidly approaching and he had nowhere to sleep. He went up to a farmhouse and asked the farmer if he could spend the night. The farmer told him that he could sleep in the barn.

The farmer's daughter came down from upstairs and asked her father, "Who was that man going into the barn?"

"That's some fellow traveling through," said the farmer. "He needed a place to stay for the night, so I said that he could sleep in the barn.

"Perhaps he is hungry." said the daughter. And she prepared him a plate of food and took it out to the barn. About an hour later, the daughter returned, her clothing disheveled and straw in her hair. Straight up to bed she went.

The farmer's wife was very observant. She then suggested that perhaps the man was thirsty. So she fetched a bottle of wine, took it out to the barn, and she too did not return for an hour! Her clothing was askew, her blouse buttoned incorrectly and her hair all messed up. She also headed straight to bed.

The next morning at sunrise the man in the barn got up and continued on his journey, waving to the farmer as he left. When the daughter awoke and learned that the visitor was gone, she broke into tears.

"How could he leave without even saying goodbye," she cried, "after we made such passionate love last night?"

"What?" shouted the farmer and angrily ran out of the house looking for the man, who by now was halfway up the mountain. The farmer screamed up at him, "I'm gonna get you! You had sex with my daughter!"

The man looked back down from the mountainside, cupped his hand next to his mouth, and yelled out, ......


wait for it!!! (Scroll down)

Jessica: My name is Jessica. What's urs?
Other girl: I can't really tell u.
Jessica: Why?
Other girl: Because I'm dead.

Mary: I live in mirrors and travel by them, and my full name is BLoody Mary.
Jessica: (Laughing) You can't be bloody Mary. There's no such thing!
Mary: Are u sure about that? Do you wanna find out the hard way? I know everythin about u. I know where u live, what u like, who u like, ur favorite color, ur full name, and I know what u are scared of.
Jessica: Ok, ur really freakin me out now. Stop it!
Mary: I won't. If u don't copy this conversation down and send it to 15 people, I will come to you.

The Next Day...

Jessica woke up in the mornin after sendin a copy of her conversation to 15 people. She went into her bathroom and turned on the lights. She looked into her mirror and all of a sudden, the lights went out. She looked into the mirror and saw a person standing next to her with a long blood covered knife. She was holding it up over Jessica's head. Jessica looked around and felt around but felt nobody else in the room. She turned around and turned on the lights. She turned around and there was no person beside her or in the mirror anymore. Then she looked on the ground and saw something red. She bent down and felt it. It was wet and looked like blood.

Bloody Mary didn't hurt Jessica only because she sent the e-mail to 15 other people. Now you have to too or Bloody Mary might get you.

Send it to 14 or lower people, and you never know what might happen...

Swiss moonlight lullaby

Strolling along in the moonlight by a mountain stream
Oh, high up on a mountain lies my golden dream
There lives my sweetheart waiting day by day
Watching from the doorway of her moonlight Swiss Chalet

Roll along old silver moon
Roll along on your way
While I sing my yodeling from my moonlight Swiss Chalet

( Yodel )

When I cross the valley and climb a mountain high
I hear the echo yodeling of my Swiss moonlight lullaby
It echoes through the canyon and along the mountain side
And sets my heart a-flutter with my Swiss moonlight lullaby

Roll along old silver moon
Roll along on your way
While I sing my yodeling from my moonlight Swiss Chalet

( Yodel )

Hello,
    I was wondering if anyone could help me.
There is a song with a little girl yodeling to her chicken. She'd sing a verse and then the chicken would squawk a bit. It's in German I believe. (60's-70's)
Any clues? Thank you, James

My personal favorite song w/yodeling in it is 'Night Rider's Lament' by Mike Burton. 'Lovesick Blues' is another good one and always a crowd pleaser. I do a Tom Dundee(RIP) song called 'Cowboys Born Out Of Their Time' in which I insert a yodel part. Tom always told me he liked my version and was steamed he didn't think of adding a yodel part. RIP Tom, I really miss you.

Maranda, it's all over YouTube, including here (click me). Did you need sheet music? That would be harder, but I bet you could get the words and tune from the video if you put your mind to it.

Thanks for the link, ClaireBear. I never heard anybody mix French with yodeling before.

There's a remarkable variety of yodeling on YouTube. I've been having a good time listening to the various types, but it frightens my cat.
(
I must say I enjoyed Bobbejaan more when I cast my eyes down and didn't look at his exaggerated expressions.)

Vicki, if you send me an email, I can send you a copy of Carolina Cotton doing Mockingbird Yodel if that would be of use to you. dale8r AT hotmail.

An album of her music is available at itunes and likely other places as well.

As an aside, here is a nice bio of Carolina Cotton (Helen Hagstrom) 1925-1997 who was originally from Cash, AR. http://www.rockabillyhall.com/CarolinaCotton.html

Ever heard "On the Rim of the World" by Malvina Reynolds? It's the one that got me learning to yodel. A socially conscious yodeling song! Now, that's hard to beat.

I found it on Amazon.com on her "Ear to the Ground" CD, which I tried to link to here and created havoc in my posting. Anyway, you can get an MP3 of the song on Amazon, I think, for 99 cents.
