Roger Miller - Roger Miller (mca 1986) - Arkansas Lyrics submitted by: Kicko




Well, i ain't never travelled much
But someday when the money's such
I'd like to see the world and all
And maybe go through arkansas

Arkansas, arkansas
I sure love old arkansas
Love my ma, love my pa
But i just love ole arkansas

I'd like to get my picture took
Put it in my memory book
And someday hang it on my wall
To say that I'd seen arkansas

Arkansas, arkansas
I sure love old arkansas
Love my ma, love my pa
But i just love ole arkansas

My grandpa was always good
I'd play horsey on his foot
He'd tell me when I'd get tall
We'd both go see arkansas

Arkansas, arkansas
I sure love old arkansas
Love my ma, love my pa
But i just love ole arkansas

Arkansas, arkansas
I sure love old arkansas
Love my ma, love my pa
But i just love ole arkansas

key of c :    e gg, a ff, defgfee, gggggff, agbdedcc

884,884,8888884, 888888888888884

as you can see, I have no damn idea how to get this concept across, but the word Ar-kan-sas is E-G-G. etc to a rhythm consisting of 2 eighth notes followed by a quarter note, etc the rest should pretty much fall in to place but those are the notes and the approxomate rhythm if you can follow my troglydite logic   jimmyt

refresh   anyone want to show me a better way of writing out music on a regular keyboard?   I was intrigued at how difficult this is even when the tune is so simple and straightforward. just curious

Jimmy, I've been learning ABC notation. Since I can read music pretty well it's fairly easy for me to write an ABC notation file just from looking at the sheet music. Then I put it in the ABC Convertamatic form at Concertina.net, here. Hit submit and go to a page that prints out what I've written and has a midi link to listen to the midi of it.

Try it. If you want to learn ABC notation, search on the net for a site that you feel comfortable with.

Here's the ABC for your tune.......maybe.....check to see if it's right. I used a little judgment to make 4 beats to each measure.


X:1
T:Arkansas
M:4/4
L:1/4
K:C
E/E/GA/F/F | D/E/F/G/G/E/E | G/G/G/G/G/G/F | A/G/B/D/E/D/C |
w:Ar-kan-sas, Ar-kan-sas

E/G/G,A/F/F.|D/E/F/G/F/E/E.|G/G/G/G/G/F/F/A/| (down an octave)G/B/D/E/D/C/C. thanks, MAry I think I am getting a grip on it! I will sort out the website, thanks for the info as I have written it here, the comma after a letter indicated 2 peats instead of one, I am sure there is a way in this concertina site to simplify it fdr me.
