Do you have any words from the song? Brimstone's performance is available, but the title "Columbine" brings up lotsa songs. No way to tell which is the one you're looking for.

According to Derek Brimstone's web site, COLUMBINE is also on a CD called "All Those Songs." It doesn't say who wrote the song.

Several people have written songs called COLUMBINE. Does anyone know who wrote the one that Derek Brimstone recorded? If we knew, we might be able to get the lyrics from another source.

E.mail me and I'll send you the lyric. I can't remember where I got it from. I think it might have been from Michael Chapman, a long time ago. E.mail is d.brimstone1@ntlworld.com. Sorry about the3 delay, but I haven't looked at the mudcat site for ages. I will do so more often in the future.

Columbine. The lyrics. Thanks to 'Brimmo'.

Tossing hair of raven
Eyes of flashing blue
All the living that your saving
Won't buy your dreams for you.

Cut yourself a Columbine
Tear it from the stem
Breath apon the petals fine
And throw' em to the wind.

Watch the petals dancing
See them whirl and spin
For all your pride and prancin'
Well how much will it bring.

Watch the petals start to fly
Then come tumbling down
Hear the wind begin to cry
As they tumble to the ground

Oh lady like the flower fair
Some day you'l have to call
And you will see me standing there
To catch as you fall

Repeat first verse.


Dereks words on 'Shuffleboat' are slightly different but these are the words he sent me. They apparantly came from an LP by Mike Chapman.

Noy trying to be wise after the event, but if you type Columbine Lyrics into Google, these lyrics come up on the first page, about five hits down, with attribution to Townes van Zandt.
