Subject: Lyr Req: Calamity Jane
From: open mike
Date: 09 Oct 04 - 05:20 AM

posting this request again with it's own (her own) thread:
Looking for the test of the lyrics to this song about Jane Canary (sp?)

Does anyone have the rest of the words to this
Chris Williamson song Calamity Jane?
I think she wrote it for a high school musical.

From Billings to Boise, Helltooth to Cheyenne......

       chorus:
       Calamity jane, queen of the plains,
       An angel of mercy riding the range
       Deadwood's favorite daughter,
       White devil of the yellow stone,
       As brave as any woman that the west has ever known.

OH, I ain't got no family, no place to settle down
Just rollin' like a tumbleweed thru them dusty little towns
And the men and the whiskey, they keep me company
I'm raising the devil, footloose and fancy free...

there are a couple more verses....I hope someone has the album and can transcribe...it might be on the Changer and the Changed album and is on a later one called country blessed..

Country Blessed (Cris Williamson/Teresa Trull: 1989)
An even collaboration, more or less: Trull and Williamson each get a few leads, plus co-write and co-sing the title track and "Fertanga," an ode to a horse. Trull's influence pushes the project into pure country-western in places (her "Keep On," with Nashville-style traded solos; Williamson's singalong "Calamity Jane"), while elsewhere Williamson retreats to quiet piano ballads ("Mother, Mother"). Trull has a hearty voice ("The Shady Glen") and just-folks manner; though she's rarely distinctive she's never unpleasant. The truly weird part is three sappy ballads written by Gary Marks, two sung by Williamson and one by Trull - I have nothing against guys, but after going to so much trouble to demonstrate that women could handle every part of the music business, why recruit a male to write trite garbage like "The Love We Take"? Produced and mostly arranged by Trull. (DBW)

CALAMITY JANE
Cris Williamson

From Billings to Bozeman, Belle Fourche to Cheyenne,
The creak of saddle leather, the reins are in my hand.
The shouts and the laughter of a thousand honky-tonks,
And the good old cowboys are singing this song:

CHORUS: Calamity Jane, queen of the plains,
An angel of mercy, riding the range,
Deadwood's favorite daughter, white devil of the Yellowstone,
As brave as any woman that the west has ever known.

I ain't got no family, no place to settle down,
Just rollin' like a tumbleweed through them dusty little towns,
And the men and the whiskey, they keep me company.
I'm raisin' the devil footloose and fancy-free.

Sometimes toward the end when the lights are dyin' down,
I get to feelin' lonesome, so I buy another round.
The warmth of the whiskey just seems to ease the pain
When I'm on a high lonesome again,
High lonesome again, high lonesome again.
The warmth of the whiskey just seems to ease the pain
When I'm on a high lonesome again.

REPEAT

CHORUS

As brave as any woman,
As brave as any woman,
As brave as any woman
That the west has ever known,
That the west has ever known,
That the west has ever known.

Here's something interesting about the woman known as Calamity Jane, real name Martha Canary. She was not the only woman known by that name- there were at least three others as well. All were alcoholics and prostitutes. I searched Google Books and found this:Calamity Jane: The Woman and the Legend. Part of Page 33 says, "Another well-known Calamity Jane was Mattie Young, killed in a buggy accident while drunk in Denver in 1878. In Montana, Annie Fillmore was known as Calamity Jane."

Hello all! I am stumped and that usually does not happen to me! Does anyone have the chords for a song called Calamity Jane-written by Chris Williamson and recorded by Teresa something (starts with a "T"). Got most of it - I'm just not hearing the changes on parts of it. Would appreciate it - thanks!
