Subject: LYR/INFO REQ; Gold in the morning sun........
From: Jonathan
Date: 12 Dec 98 - 03:16 PM

At that funny age now, starting to get maudlin about my childhood; this song was common.......

For I have silver in the stars And gold in the morning sun.................

Anyone have the words and tell me who performed it in the early 60s (aaaah, those 60s!) Jonathan.

I have a version performed by Eric Darling. Have to look up the lyrics, I think, since 1960 gets further away every year. Is this what you want?

GOLD IN THE MORNING SUN
(as recorded by Eric Darling)

I'm just a poor little country boy,
Money have I none,
But there's silver in the stars (moon?)
Gold in the morning sun, sun
Gold in the morning sun.

Redbird sittin' in a sycamore tree
Singin' out his soul,
Big bad snake crawled up that tree
Swallered that pore boy whole, whole,
Swallered that pore boy whole.

Blue jay pulls a four horse plow,
Sparrow why can't you?
'Cause my legs is little an' long,
They might get broke in two, two,
Might get broke in two

Seems like there's one more verse... anyone?
Blessings,
Barbara

Here's the version recorded by Sonny James



GOLD IN THE MORNING SUN
(As recorded by Sonny James)

Call me a happy boy in love
Heartaches have I none
Oh, I've got silver in the stars
And gold in the morning sun - sun
Gold in the morning sun.

Got a little girl and she loves me
She's not the jiltin' kind
Never, never worry what she does
I know that her heart is mine - mine
I know that her heart is mine.

Refrain:
Gold in the morning sun
Gold in the morning sun.

Upon the mountain yesterday
Walkin' hand in hand
I took my sweetheart in my arms
And told her that our love would stand - stand
Told her that our love would stand.

Pretty, pretty little one
Let not your heart ache
For like the dove and his true love
Never will I forsake - forsake
Never will I forsake.

Repeat refrain

TAG: Gold in the morning sun.

Woody knows nothin' but peckin' on a log Out where the sky is blue; Never knew till I met you What love, oh love could do.

Plus any of the standard Turtledove verses. I believe Bellafonte did the "big" record of this.

I remember:
Woody knows nothin' but peckin' on a bough
Ah, but the skies are blue
Never knew till I met you
What love oh love could do, do
What love oh love could do.

(and the turtledoves Dick is talking about) Can't you see yon turtledove
Flies from pine to pine,
Mourning for his own true love
As I, my dear, for mine, oh mine,
As I, my dear, for mine.

I suspect it was the Belafonte version, as my Dad had a penchant for singing " I am your Daddy, OH NO, my Daddy can't be ugly so!" which was probably on the same album. Thanks all! Jonathan.

The refrain and strands of these versions appear in Don William's 'I'm Just a Country Boy':

I'M JUST A COUNTRY BOY
(as recorded by Don Williams)

I ain't gonna marry in the fall
I ain't gonna marry in the spring
Cause I'm in love with a pretty little girl
Who wears a diamond ring

CHORUS:
Cause I'm just a country boy
Money have I none
But I've got silver in the stars
And gold in the morning sun
And gold in the morning sun

Never gonna kiss the ruby red lips
Of the prettiest girl in town
Never gonna ask her if she'd marry me
I know she'd turn me down

Never could afford a store bought ring
With a sparkling diamond stone
All I could afford is a lovin' heart
The only one I own
