…That’s Where You’ll Find Me…

image

I know that I’ve been a bad poster of videos for the last month or so, but I am exhausted!

Since I’ve gotten back from Henry Reed, I’ve been working 10 and 12 hour days and weekends.

I am hoping that after work this Saturday everything will get back to normal.

I’m glad I’m working and making money, but at the same time, if I wasn’t,  I could produce 10 videos a day and 6 books a year and still have 10 hours in a day to do something.  :-)

Anyway, I should be back on track on Monday and until then I’ll get my rest vicariously through watching Omega sleep on the couch.

This month’s Chicagoland Jam was also Jim Farley’s 50th birthday party.  We had a great jam and the whole crowd was singing along on the choruses.

I’ll send out the info about the next Jam Session soon.

Everything is Late and YouTube hates me: -)

I have all the videos ready and done for this week, but my home internet and YouTube don’t like each other.

I am hoping to have everything up this weekend and maybe next week will be better.

I have another video from BanjoStu that should be up later today.

If all goes well, I’ll see you later,

Folk Song Of The Week – Old Plank Road on Frailing Banjo

UPDATE: YouTube has finally allowed me to post! Yeah!!!!!

image

UPDATE:   YouTube has done something crazy and I can’t fix it from work, so be patient for a few hours and I’ll get the video fixed.

This week’s Folk Song Of The Week is Old Plank Road. It only has two chords and it’s a great song to sing and play. It’s always a good idea to get everyone to sing along on the chorus and roar it out.

 Old Plank Road MP3

Old Plank Road(PDF)

Old Plank Road

[G]Rather be in Richmond, midst all the hail and rain, Than for to be in Georgia boys, wearing that ball and chain

Chorus:

Won’t get drunk no more, won’t get drunk no [D7]more, [G]Won’t get
drunk no more, way [D7]down on the old plank [G]road

I went down to Mobile for to get on the gravel train, Very next thing heard of me, had on a ball and chain

Dony, oh dear Dony, what makes you treat me so? Caused me to wear the bail and chain, now my ankle’s sore

Knoxville is a pretty place, Memphis is a beauty If you want to see them some pretty girls, hop to Chattanoogie

I’m going to build a scaffold on some mountain high So I can see my Dora girl as she goes riding by

My wife died on Friday night, Saturday was buried Sunday was my courting day, Monday I was married

Folk Song Of The Week Delayed By 12 Hours

Usually I do one take of my videos and leave it warts and all, but this time the audio was missing so I have to do it again.

I’m too tired tonight so I’ll do it in the morning before work.

See you all then,

Irish Pub Song Of The Day – The Gypsy Rover on Frailing Banjo

Today’s Irish Pub Song Of The Day is The Gypsy Rover or The Whistling Gypsy Rover. It’s a wonderful song and the same story is told in folk songs around the world.

Have fun and remember to play, love, learn, do, repeat, repeat, repeat!

The Gypsy Rover MP3

The Gypsy Rover(PDF)

THE GYPSY ROVER

The [G]gypsy [D7]rover came [G]over the [D7]hill

[G]Down through the [C]valley so [G]sha[D7]dy,

He [G]whistled and he [D7]sang till the [G]greenwoods [Em]rang,

And [G]he won the [C]heart of a [G]l[D7]a[G]dy.

Chorus:

Ah-de-do, ah-de-do-da-day,

Ah-de-do, ah-de-da-ay

He whistled and he sang ’til the greenwoods rang,

And he won the heart of a lady.

She left her father’s castle gates
She left her own fine lover
She left her servants and her state
To follow the gypsy rover.

Her father saddled up his fastest steed
And roamed the valleys all over
Sought his daughter at great speed
And the whistling gypsy rover.

He came at last to a mansion fine,
Down by the river Claydee
And there was music and there was wine,
For the gypsy and his lady.

“He is no gypsy, my father” she said
“But lord of these lands all over,
And I shall stay ’til my dying day
With my whistling gypsy rover.”

Lazy Saturday

10 July 2010
m4s0n501

I have a lot to do, but since I actually got a Saturday off, I spent it the best way I know how….letting Omega sleep on my lap all day.  It’s been 10 hours and he keeps coming back and falling asleep.

What can I say, life is good.
