Subject: Tune Req: Bring Me a Rose
From: Chris in Wheaton
Date: 09 May 05 - 12:30 PM

We went to a great Peter Seeger birthday celebration at the Artichoke in Portland OR on Friday night. One degree of separation from Pete for most there!
I knew most of the songs, but had not heard Bring Me a Rose before - very nice song. We went to the song circle on Saturday and they sang it over the phone to the recuperating song circle leader - very nice people in Portland.
Does anyone have a source for the music? Mr. Google couldn't find an mp3 or midi. Any source would be appreciated.
Thanks, Chris back in Wheaton

Heres the lyrics

Bring Me a Rose
(Ernie Sheldon)

Bring me a rose in the wintertime,
When they're hard to find.
Bring me a rose in the wintertime,
I've got roses on my mind.

For a rose is sweet,
Most anytime and yet.
Bring me a rose in the wintertime,
How easily we forget.


Bring me a friend when I'm all alone,
When they're hard to find.
Bring me a friend when I'm all alone,
I've got friendship on my mind.

For a friend is sweet,
Most anytime and yet.
Bring me a friend when I'm all alone,
How easily we forget.


Bring me a smile when I'm far from home,
When they're hard to find.
Bring me a smile when I'm far from home,
I've got smilin' on my mind.

For a smile is sweet,
Most anytime and yet.
Bring me a smile when I'm far from home,
How easily we forget.


Bring me peace when there's talk of war,
When it's hard to find.
Bring me peace when there's talk of war,
I've got peace on my mind.

For peace is sweet,
Most anytime and yet.
Bring me peace when there's talk of war,
How easily we forget.

Looks there are 2 BMAR's. The one by Ernie Scheldon - words above, and an 1890's parlor song by the same name.
What I would like is the melody to the one with the words above. Villan, can you help with that?
Thanks, Chris

Ernie Sheldon's version appeared on the Limeliters album "More of Everything," which was his first recording as Glenn Yarbrough's original replacement. If that's the one you want, Chris (the Chris from the WFMT New Year's Eve parties??), I still have it in vinyl, I think, and I'm not that far away from you. Reach me at revtink100@yahoo.com.

Seems like this one is common enough that it should be in some songbook, but I couldn't find it.
If somebody can e-mail a MIDI to me, I'll post it.

Nutty - thanks for the offer - I sent you a PM
If you can't find it - I let you know Tinker - I'm not the Chris you're thinking of, but I saw you guys at the Special Anniversary show - thanks for the offer of help.
I'll keep watching too to see if Joe gets a midi.
If it is in RUS, it would be on the learning cd, which our local group, Plank Road, might have.
Thanks for all the help, Chris

Bring Me a Rose is featured on Rev. Carey Landry's 1981 album "By Name I Have Called You". The album's companion sheet music booklet, published by North American Liturgy Resources,a division of Epoch Publications, lists the 1964 copyright holder to be Harrison Music Corp.

I'm still looking for a MIDI for this one. I swear I've seen this song in a songbook, with lyrics. They may be such a songbook in this very room from which I type, or in my library upstairs. But I can't find the damn thing. I think I have about 750 songbooks, so finding any particular song can be a problem.
E-mail a scan or a MIDI to me if you can come up with one.
Thanks.

Somebody should have access to the songbook I linked to.

It's well used in schools and churches. I have some books from this publisher but,unfortunately, not this particular one.

The Alleluya songbook sounds too good to pass up, Nutty. I found a used copy at a reasonable price and ordered it. Thanks for the tip.
I looked in a couple of Cary Landry songbooks, and didn't find the song.

Ernie Sheldon (nee: Ernie Lieberman was a fine singer and guitar player. He found a niche as a lyricist. He wrote the words for "Baby, The Rain Must Fall" with Elmer Bernstein and for some reason, Glen Yarborough, who made a hit of the song refused to perform it live.
(Folk snobbery?)

Ernie was one of the original members of People's Artists in New York along with Leon Bibb and Betty Sanders.

Ernie is an important member of the folksong community. His progressive values interfered with his early career as was the case of Jay Gorney with Yip Harburg (Brother Can You Spare a Dime), so Lieberman became Sheldon. The controversial singers caught hell during the McCarthy era.
(And McCarthy is back!)

Ernie and I wrote a couple of songs for the market. I owe him a debt of gratitude for
the placement of these minor hits with Peggy Lee and also the Drifters. I couldn't have done it without him.

Ernie was on the cutting edge of pop music during the Seventies. Most of his material
found it's way into the movies. You can Google him for details.

Through Ernie, I had the privilege of working as a side man with Gerry Fried and Jerry Goldsmith. At the time, I was the resident "folkie".

I hope Ernie is still writing even though the market has changed (dumbed down).
"Bring Me A Rose" is a lovely song and I've encountered it through the years with various people who have loved it.

I met Ernie through left-wing circles when I was a kid. He is always supportive, kind,
intelligent and although we haven't spoken for many years, I think of him as a good friend fondly.

Somewhat related lyrics: "Come Sing a Song With Me" - Carolyn McDade

Come sing a song with me
come sing a song with me
come sing a song with me
that I might know your mind
And I'll bring you hope
When hope is hard to find
And I'll bring a song of love
And a rose in the wintertime.

Come dream a dream with me.....

Come walk in rain with me......

Come share a rose with me.....
