Lyr Req: Cup o' Tea (Don Williams)

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 Req: Don't want to be your ocean
From: KT
Date: 04 Feb 05 - 12:45 AM

Anyone know of a Carter Family song that has "I don't want to be your ocean, I just want to be your cup of tea." (or something like that) in the refrain? I know I'm not offering much, here but that's all I know. Does this ring a bell for anyone?   Thanks.

KT

Scroll down page found on link. There is another to be found there also. I don't know the title. Wish I could have been more helpful.

One of the sites listed on the page Brucie linked to, is BlueGrass West: Songs of the Carter Family, which I believe has a complete selection of Carter Family songs. I used their new search engine, and couldn't find a song woth both "ocean" and "cup" in it. Here are the "ocean" phrases I found: Good luck!

Thanks, Brucie and Joe.

After seeing the results of your search, Joe, I'm thinking that maybe it's not a Carter Family Song after all, though the singer said it was. Hmmmm.....It was a lovely song....wish I could find it. Thanks for your help.

CUP O' TEA
Don Williams

I don't want to be the fiery sun.
I just want to be your candle, honey.
I just want to be your candle, baby.
Let the sun shine on.

I don't want to be the deep blue sea.
I just want to be your cup o' tea.
I just want to be your cup o' tea.
Let the sea rage on.

Let the waves roll and pound.
Let the sun burn the ground.
Let this old world roll around.
I'll be happy to have your lovin'.

I don't want to be like a big freight train.
I just want to be your walking cane.
I just want to be your walking cane.
You can lean on me.

I don't want to be like a bird in the air.
I just want to be your rocking chair.
I just want to be your rocking chair.
Baby, sit by me.

Let the trains roll on by.
Leave it up to the birds to fly,
Long as you say you'll be mine.
I'll be happy to have your lovin'.

I don't want to be like the deep blue sea.
I just want to be your cup o' tea.
I just want to be your cup o' tea.
Let the sea rage on.


[It doesn't sound at all like a Carter Family song to me.]
