Subject: lyr/info: Cindy in the Meadows

Hi,

Here's a recording of Cindy in the Meadows: http://www.honkingduck.com/BAZ/honkingduck78s.php?qt=artist&ap=10&tp=14&q=samantha&Find=Search

I've tried to transcribe it, need some help. Corrections please. There are only a few words that I can't get.

"Cindy In The Meadows" by "Samantha Bumgarner & Eva Jones (or Davis)"
Columbia 167 - D Recorded: April 1, 1924 Issued: July 1924

(Fiddle)

I asked her if she loved me,
She said she loved me some.
I throwed my arms around her
Like a (?) around a (?)
Everything's all right Cindy

Cindy in the summertime,
Cindy in the fall
If I don't get Cindy
I'll not marry at all
Everything's all right Cindy

When I went to see her,
She's standing in the door
With her shoes and stockings in her hand
And her feet all over the floor
Everything's all right Cindy.

(Fiddle)

? Great big sweet potato
While running in the sand
She swore I was the biggest fool
That lived in Dixon land
Everything's all right Cindy.

(Fiddle)

When I went to see her
She wrung her hands and cried
When I went I went to leave her
She passed away and died.
Everything's all right Cindy.

Scroll down to Cindy. I am not finding the words you quote, but I will continue to look. (Sorry, I can't get RealPlayer to work on this machine.)

"I throwed both arms around her like a grapevine around a stump"

I am very doubtful about "everything's all right" and "while running" but I have no idea what those words really are.

the words are hard to make out on this - check out the Stairwell Sisters version from their Feet All Over the Floor to see what they made of them!

I think each verse ends with 'Ain't I right Cindy' rather than 'Everything's all right'

I also think that Jim Dixon is correct with 'grapevine round a stump'

I've always assumed that the fourth verse starts

Great big sweet potato
I rubbed it in the sand

The original link doesn't work. Try this one:

CINDY IN THE MEADOWS performed by Samantha Bumgarner & Eva Davis, at the Honking Duck web site.

I've listened again, and I agree with Steve Wise's corrections.
