Subject: Lyr Add: SHILOH TOWN (Tim Hardin)
From: GUEST,honeydhont

Hi, recently I read in a book that Tim Hardin's 'Shiloh Town' (1974 - lyrics below) was previously recorded in the late 60s by Richie Havens on his album 'Electric Havens' as 'Shadow Town' (trad.). Since this album seems to be out of print, it's hard to make a comparison. Is there anyone familiar with this song? or the lyrics? Thanks in advance.

It is so cold in Shiloh town
The birds can't hardly sing
The pretty girls gonna leave the town
They won't be back until spring

The war has been won; they come back home
But they're the ones that lost
I see a man and a woman alone
Was it worth the cost?

I'll sing hallelujah
You'll sing hallelujah
We'll all sing hallelujah
When they arrive at home

The sun is out; it's hot today
Children all are out to play
Some are quick to come back home
Others have gone to stay

It is so cold in Shiloh town
The birds can't hardly sing
Pretty girls gonna leave the town
They won't be back till spring

I'll sing hallelujah
You'll sing hallelujah
We'll all sing hallelujah
When they arrive at home

Hmmm. Looks like we have three interrelate songs, but no solid information about the original source or version. See this Richard Thompson song (click) and the thread included in the crosslinks at the top of the page.
