Lyr Add: Broken Hearted Lover (Carter Family)

DigiTrad:
ANCHORED IN LOVE
ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT?
ARE YOU TIRED OF ME MY DARLING
BLUE EYES
BUDDIES IN THE SADDLE
CHEWING GUM
DEAR COMPANION
DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH
GEORGIE ON THE IRT (parody on Engine 143)
GOD GAVE NOAH THE RAINBOW SIGN
GOLD WATCH AND CHAIN
I AIN'T GOT NO HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE
I CAN'T FEEL AT HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE
JUST A FEW MORE DAYS
LULU WALLS
RAILROADING ON THE GREAT DIVIDE
SAILOR ON THE DEEP BLUE SEA
SINGLE GIRL
THE CUBAN SOLDIER
THE LITTLE GYPSY GIRL
THE STORMS ARE ON THE OCEAN
THE WRECK ON THE C & O
WAVES ON THE SEA
YOU ARE MY FLOWER

Subject: Lyr Add: THE BROKEN HEARTED LOVER (Carter Family)
From: CarterNut
Date: 10 Aug 98 - 10:24 AM

Keeping in line with my friend Tiger, here is a great Carter Family song to start with.

THE BROKEN HEARTED LOVER
A.P. Carter (Public Domain)
  
Would you let her part us darling,
Could you truly turn away;
Would it make your heart ache darling,
Not to see me night or day?

Ch. I've been dreaming of you darling,
dreaming of your eyes so blue;
Take me back for love I'm dying,
And I love none else but you.

Many a day with you I've rambled,
Down by the shades of the deep blue sea;
There you told me that you love me,
That you love none else but me.

I will give you back your letters,
And the picture I loved so well;
How it makes my heart ache darling,
Oh, it is hard to say farewell.


Enjoy!
John J.

Oooh, thanks, Q! Great site to know about.

Just wondering, though, about "Are You Lonesome Tonight." The lyrics I know for the verse #1 are:
"Are you lonesome tonight, do you miss me tonight?
Are you sorry we drifted apart?
Does your memory stray to a bright summer day..."

and for the bridge, they are:
"Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare?
Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there? ..."

Did the Carters sing different lyrics than the pop singers of the 20s/30s/40s did and Elvis did later? Or are their errors in the lyrics on the Carter songs website you linked to? (I know that Cowpie's lyrics, for instance, are sometimes spot on and sometimes way off, depending on who submitted them.)

CHORUS: Are you lonesome tonight? Do you miss me, I say?
Are you sorry we drifted apart?
Does your memories [sic] cling to that bright summer day
When I kissed you and called you sweetheart?

Like the rose on the vine, I am clinging to you
As I did when we drifted apart.
I am wishing you back to that little shack
Where I kissed you and called you sweetheart.

Does the chair in your parlor seem empty and bare?
Do you miss me and wish I was there?
Is your heart filled with pain? Shall I come back again?
Tell me, darling, are you lonesome tonight? CHORUS

I have counted the days; I've counted the nights.
I've counted the months and the years.
I have counted on you since we drifted apart.
Tell me, darling, are you lonesome tonight? CHORUS


I found these on the wonderful Carter Family Website..
there are 47 pages of Carter lyrics.
Just type it in google and it comes up.

Yeah, Mary, that's the site that Q linked to, I think, and those are the lyrics I found there for "Lonesome." I still don't know if the site has lyric errors or if Elvis and the other pop singers who recorded the song changed them.

Hard to track down the "exact" lyrics sung unless you have taken the text from the recordings. I'm sure someone here has the re-issue cds.

The site I linked to has more accurate lyrics and more of them than the other site, but I don't have enough of the recordings to verify them. Try checking both of them:

1. Carter texts
Labeled "complete" but it isn't. This is the one I linked to before.

2. Carter family

A complete listing of the 12 cds in "In the Shadow of Clinch Mountain" is here: Clinch Mountain
It has "all" of the commercially recorded Carter Family.

The second site that Q linked has the accurate transcription, complete with the ungrammatical third line of the chorus - 'Does your memories ...'

The other site - I'll have a go at linking it: CLICK - corrected the grammatical error and also substituted 'we' for 'we've' in the final stanza.

Checked from reissue on 'The Decca Sessions Volume One' Catfish KATCD 188.
