Subject: Lyr Add: THE WHITE HARE (trad. arr Seth Lakeman)
From: ragdall
Date: 23 Jan 07 - 06:56 AM

Is this what you want?
THE WHITE HARE - Seth Lakeman

Genre/Lang. : Pop

I heard her in the valley,
I heard her in the dead of night.
The warning of a white hare
Her eyes burning bright.

Careful you don't catch her
Give her right of way.
For she will look upon you,
And steal your soul away

For the white hare is calling,
She's dancing in the night.
She'll be out 'til the morning light.

Out upon the heather
A shadow came onto me.
Her hair was hanging over,
Her face I could not see.

She ran behind the rocks,
I heard the hounds cry,
The image of a woman
With head she held up high.

For the white hare is calling,
She's dancing in the night.
She'll be out 'til the morning
With her eyes burning bright.
The white hare is calling you.

If you go hunting,
Calling out your prey,
If you see a fair maid,
Her hair an ash and grey,

Careful you don't catch her,
Give her right of way,
For she will look upon you,
And steal your soul away

For the white hare is calling,
She's dancing in the night.
She'll be out 'til the morning,
With her eyes burning bright.
The white hare is calling you.

You can her her calling every night

You can her her calling every night
You can her her calling...

Why thank you folks :-)

Interesting the Genre is given as "Pop". That person is obviously not a folkie and doesn't recognise a trad lyric when he sees it.

"That person" happens not to be British and was courteously replying to a request unaware of the sarcasm contained in the original post!

Maybe a little courtesy in replying would not be amiss? I thought the music threads at least were not the place for discouraging genuine lovers of music, whatever their background and "local" knowledge!

I apologise to both GUEST,Canadienne and ragdall. I intended no discourtesy to ragdall in the above reply, but it seems GUEST,Canadienne interpreted it that way. I hope ragdall didn't, but if so, my apologies to you too.

I assumed the Genre had been extracted from a website along with the lyrics, and not invented by ragdall (I still assume that, unless I'm told otherwise). "That person" referred to the person who allocated the genre to the song, not to ragdall.

Thanks to ragdall for posting the lyrics.

Has anyone thought of adding a few lines and then claiming copyright, in the stylee of Rod Stewart with Wild Mountain Thyme?

Just a thought.

That's it chaps, no jokes above the line, only serious musical discussions allowed.

That reminds me of the old joke:

Some people were sitting in a courtroom watching a trial. Suddenly, a man wearing an overcoat with a scarf around the lower part of his face, burst in through a side door, ran along in front of the jury, groped at the breasts of the female members of the jury, then exited as quickly as he had entered.

The judge said: "Who was that?" and the clerk replied:













wait for it








"That was the muffled titter running through the courtroom, m'lud".

It's the way I tell 'em.

There's no need to mention it to EMI is there? It's trad. Scrump, you forgot to ask for the melody in ABC, don't make life hard for yourself old boy.

It's OK, thanks, I can get the tune from Seth's website. Or I might decide to write my own. (Oops, did I say that out loud or just think it?)

Some people disapprove of guitar accompaniments for traditional English folk song.

If this is a trad song where's its provenance? It probably has its own tradition but it doesn't belong to any tradition I'm aware of. However for a trad song of the same title check out the Yorkshire Garland website. www.yorkshirefolksong.com

Jiggers - not a different version but a different song (and I think the point of Scrump's original and wicked post was that the Lakeman song wasn't ever traditional, even though it won an award...?).

John McK - as soon as I saw your post, I thought Watersons, White Hare of Howden, even before I clicked on the link...

Good points but what's this go to do with what chords might fit with Seth lakeman song covered by the Tindalls, or was it the other way round ?

I notice there isn't much variance in the song in terms of range of notes so the accompaniement is important.

Any ideas ? Would I better starting a new thread ?

Jiggers - it's a Seth Lakeman song covered by the Tindalls (sung by Sarah).

It's possible a Mudelf might change the title of this thread to "Chords required: White Hare (Lakeman)" before you start a new thread!

It's not trad. It's a Lakeman original, as far as I know.

Enter "white hare lakeman chords" into a search engine and you'll find all you want.
