    One I will hate to see forgotten
    Of the sweet things in life,
    none be sweeter than devotion.



    I often ask myself...Is this song the birth of Heavy punk metal Rock? ":O}

    This song and his Christmas song pretty much say all that needs to be said. Love you John. Simply the qualities of his voice are eternal.

    The Sixties were so intense... In a way I'm glad they are behind us. Yet many issues brought to the fore then are still with us today. We never got past the Sixties. But how large can one decade be?

    Maybe I'm more honest to post that the Sixties aren't over for me?

    I have hunted and search for this song. This is my 3rd grade play ground set to music. Thank you very much George you put jump rope and hop scotch back into my memories.

    I think I remember this, but I'm not sure so be careful! LOL

    I believe this song originated in New Orleans, The king refers to the Indian Chiefs of Mardi gras as well as the flag boys. Each year Chiefs don their incredible regalia And parade the streets. The competition is ferrous

    When you hit 1:35 check out the two dancers in the fore. Smart fast stepping I had not seen before.":O}

    P.S. I have come across this song in a half dozen movies, but never actually caught up with the singers. You just made my day George!

    What they use to call a "Great day in the morning"
    A lovely saying yes?

    According to Dr John:
    "The song was written and recorded back in the early 1950s by a New Orleans singer named James Crawford who worked under the name of Sugar Boy & the Cane Cutters. It was recorded in the 1960s by the Dixie Cups for Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller's Red Bird Records, but the format we're following here is Sugar Boy's original. Also in the group were Professor Longhair on piano, Jake Myles, Big Boy Myles, Irv Bannister on guitar, and Eugene 'Bones' Jones on drums. The group was also known as the Chipaka Shaweez. The song was originally called 'Jockamo,' and it has a lot of Creole patois in it. Jockamo means 'jester' in the old myth. It is Mardi Gras music, and the Shaweez was one of many Mardi Gras groups who dressed up in far out Indian costumes and came on as Indian tribes. The tribes used to hang out on Claiborne Avenue and used to get juiced up there getting ready to perform and 'second line' in their own special style during Mardi Gras. That's dead and gone because there's a freeway where those grounds used to be. The tribes were like social clubs who lived all year for Mardi Gras, getting their costumes together. Many of them were musicians, gamblers, hustlers and pimps."

    Here's an interesting cover, with the Dr *hisself*, Levon Helm, Ringo Starr, Joe Walsh, Rick Danko, Clarence Clemens, and Nils Lofgren:

    How many songs are there that celebrate an Ocean current.. i was going to ask you all...
    but then i decided to post this instead.';o]

    a song about a constellation, oh and some stuff about introspection...';o]



    Southern Cross
    Crosby, Stills & Nash
    Got out of town on a boat for the Southern Islands
    Sailing to reach before a following sea
    She was makin' for the Trades on the outside
    And the downhill run to Papeete
    Off the wind on this heading lie the Marquesas
    We got eighty feet of waterline, nicely making way
    In a noisy bar in Avalon I tried to call you
    But on a midnight watch I realized why twice you ran away
    Think about how many times I have fallen
    Spirits are using me, larger voices callin'
    What heaven brought you and me cannot be forgotten
    I have been around the world looking for that woman girl
    Who knows love can endure
    And you know it will
    And you know it will
    When you see the Southern Cross for the first time
    You understand now why you came this way
    'Cause the truth you might be runnin' from is so small
    But it's as big as the promise, the promise of a coming day
    So I'm sailing for tomorrow, my dreams are a dyin'
    And my love is an anchor tied to you, tied with a silver chain
    I have my ship and all her flags are a flyin'
    She is all I have left and music is her name
    Think about how many times I have fallen
    Spirits are using me, larger voices callin'
    What heaven brought you and me cannot be forgotten
    I have been around the world lookin' for that woman girl
    Who knows love can endure
    And you know it will
    And you know it will
    So we cheated and we lied and we tested
    And we never failed to fail, it was the easiest thing to do
    You will survive being bested, somebody fine will come along
    Make me forget about loving you and the Southern Cross

    i was maybe 10 i was mesmerized.i could taste the dust in the streets and my hero was scared, sweating bullets scared. Everyone he had helped turned their backs on him. The bad guys are just out of prison and headed straight for the town and the sheriff that put them away.

    Now his bride, a Quaker, threatens to leave him if he doesn't run. But my hero knows they would catch him exposed upon the trail, these are really bad guys, he knows what they would do to her.

    For the first time one of my movie heroes knows fear. What's more I know why all those other heroes should have been scared.
    I know and now would always know ,they were just entertainment.

    This is someone I really like, a strong man and he is terrified. But they are here and now, already looking for him. he has run out of options and no one lest of all my hero thinks he has a chance.

    My feeling are there for mixed about the movie's hit theme, Sometimes I like it sometimes it seems weak. But as it was my first real hero's song I'm wedded to it.





    High Noon
    Frankie Laine
    Do not forsake me, oh, my darlin'
    On this, our weddin' day
    Do not forsake me, oh, my darlin'
    Wait, wait along
    I do not know what fate awaits me
    I only know I must be brave
    And I must face a man who hates me
    Or lie a coward, a craven coward
    Or lie a coward in my grave
    Oh, to be torn 'tweenst love and duty
    Supposin' I lose my fair-haired beauty
    Look at that big hand move along
    Nearin' high noon
    He made a vow while in state prison
    Vowed it would be my life or his, and
    I'm not afraid of death, but, oh
    What shall I do if you leave me?
    Do not forsake me, oh, my darlin'
    You made that promise as a bride
    Do not forsake me, oh, my darlin'
    Although you're grievin', don't think of leavin'
    Now that I need you by my side
    Wait along (wait along), wait along
    Wait along (Wait along, wait along, wait along, wait along)

    Me neither. My younger brother loved this group. Alas, he is gone too.
