From: GUEST,Joel

Looking for the words to "Stories He'd Tell" sung,-and maybe composed- by Ian Tyson. He sang it on one of Ian and Sylvia's albums.
Thanks
Joel

Subject: Lyr Add: STORIES WE COULD TELL (John B. Sebastian)
From: Barbara

Are you thinking of this song?

STORIES WE COULD TELL
By: John B. Sebastian
1974

Talkin' to myself again
Wonderin' if this travellin' is good
Is there somethin' else a' doin'
We'd be doin' if we could

Chorus:
But ah, the stories we could tell
And if it all blows up and goes to Hell
I wish that we could sit upon a bed in some motel
Listen to the stories we could tell

Stared at that guitar in that museum in Tennessee
Nameplate on the glass brought back twenty melodies
Scars upon the face told of all the times he fell
Singin' all the stories he could tell

Chorus:
Ah, the stories he could tell
And I'll bet you it still rings like a bell
I wish that we could sit upon a bed in some motel
And listen to the stories it could tell

So if you're on the road trackin' down your every night
Playin' for a livin' beneath brightly colored lights
And if you ever wonder why you ride the carousel
You do it for the stories you can tell

Ah, the stories we could tell
And if it all blows up and goes to Hell
I wish that we could sit upon a bed in some motel
Just listen to the stories we could tell

Coda:
Yes, I wish that we could sit upon a bed in some motel
Listen to the stories it could tell


Blessings,
Barbara

I found a sound sample at Barnes & Noble from which I transcribed this:

STORIES HE'D TELL
(Ian Tyson)

...price he paid, memories of old
Dead soldier friends so long ago
Was his faith so strong? Had he doubts that didn't show?
Seeing life and death, had he learned what I don't know?...

[As sung by Ian Tyson on the Ian & Sylvia album "Full Circle," MGM 1968; and on the compilation "Long Long Time," Vanguard CD 79478, 1994.]

I would like to have the lyrics to "Jaquino To Freno" and if anyone knows what the meaning of "old amacedore"(not sure that is the word), I would appreciate that also.

STORIES HE'D TELL
(Ian Tyson)

Rolling through the straits, rolling to the morning sun
He's tell of leaving home, England oh when he was young
Magic mountain's call caught him never let him go
Was his faith so strong, had he doubts that didn't show
Seeing life and death, had he learned what I don't know
Memories of old dead soldier friends from long ago

(TUNE CHANGES HERE)
All along the shore, arbutus trees do grow
And watching from their red limbs, kingfishers come and go
And we'd watch them as they flew across the bay
Late in the afternoon on salt rocks where we lay
And the water turned to gold, and the day was through
Going home he's asked me then what it was I hoped to do

Sons of his drifty friends, all settlin' down
And me in my aimless way, just a-ramblin' round
????? through windows and doors
The life that he loved isn't his anymore
But I think of him often, I remember him well
Places he's bring me, stories he's tell.

I always liked this - it was on one of those late 60's MGM albums I&S did. Mixed bags, but with some good stuff. This song almost has movements. I still follow Ian T, have seen him a few times since the mid 90's, and still try to "convert" unbelievers.

STORIES HE'D TELL
(Ian Tyson)
THE CORRECTIONS ARE IN CAPS

ROWING through the straits, ROWING CROSS the morning sun
He's tell of leaving home, England oh when he was young
Magic mountain's call caught him never let him go
Was his faith so strong, had he doubts that didn't show
Seeing life and death, had he learned what I don't know
Memories of old dead soldierS long ago

(TUNE CHANGES HERE)
All along the shore, arbutus trees do grow
And watching from their red limbs, kingfishers come and go
And THEIR SECRETS FROM HIDDEN COVES, THEY'D CALL CROSS THE BAY,
Late in the afternoon on salt rocks where we lay
And the water turned to gold, and the day was through
Going home he's asked me then what it was I hoped to do

Sons of his drifty friends, all settlin' down
And me in my aimless way, just a-ramblin' round

YEARS TURN AND LIFE TURNS BEYOND windows and doors
The life that he loved is NOT HIS OWN anymore
But I think of him often, I remember him well
Places he's TAKE me, THE stories he's tell.
