Dear all,
Do any of you know the words to a song called 'One evening in Summer'. I've found mentions of it on the mudcat in old threads, but not the actual words.

I've heard the Wilsons sing it a few times and i'd really love to learn it.

Thanks
Chris

Sorry I can't help with the words Chris, just like to add that it is a terrific song. I'm sure that someone out there knows it, after all Mudcat is the fount of ALL knowledge folky.

Why not ask the wilsons, they are very user friendly.

Before anyone gets upset the above info is off their website, so it's ok to put it out here as they want us to use it.

It's called 'On an Evening in Summer', I believe, and is by excellent songwriter Graeme Miles. It's on The Wilsons' LP 'Horumarye', along with lots of Graeme's other songs. They really should re-release that on CD.

Get hold of Graemes book, Songscapes, I think its in there. (Worth it as most of his songs are in there and the photographs by Robin Dale are stunning.)

Thankyou very much everyone- I'll try out those suggestions and will hopefully have the words soon.

Mudcat has never failed me in coming up with either the words or some excellent suggestions on how to get them.

Sorry I've only just looked at this thread - I'd assumed it was for a different song. Here it is from one of my song folders(looking at which made me realise how much I'd altered it to the version I sing these days!)

Mick



AN EVENING IN SUMMER
(Graeme Miles)

Over yon hill now the sun's coming down
And the elm tree's long shadow creeps over the ground.
Now the farmer he's finished a-mowing his grass
And it's time for a young man to go court his lass.

Chorus:
  In an evening in Summer,
  In an evening in Summer
  In an evening in Summer,
  Late on in June.


Let into The Crown now for to swallow a jar.
Let's put the world right as we prop up the bar.
Let's crack our sides laughing at a thumping good tale.
Let's sing a loud chorus in praise of strong ale.

Let's talk about cricket and that knock by young Squires.
What price by next season he'll be capped for the Shire.
But we won't forget Jonesie who won us the match
When he ran from the covers to take that fine catch.

Now the old clock's sneaked round now and the landlord's called time
And we'll make our way homewards, or at least we will try.
But we all go the same way so together we'll keep
And we'll all help each other to stay on our feet.

Thanks so much. It;s not quite the words I remember from the fine singing of Glynn West in Norfolk. It't' a brulliant start though, Penn
