The Flowing Waters of Lake Jefferson

Saturday September 29, 2007: Two Versions

Folk Plus is hosted and planned by Angela Page and airs Saturdays from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm on WJFF, at 90.5 fm in Jeffersonville, N.Y. and 94.5 in Monticello N.Y. We are Hydro-Powered Public Radio and stream online at WWW.WJFFRADIO.ORG  We are located physically about two hours northwest of New York City reaching the Poconos and the Mid Hudson listening areas. Welcome new web listeners, especially those who are currently ill and housebound.

THANKS SO MUCH to the station management fo recomending my health issues which allow me to continue to volunteer Saturday mornings and bring the music that sustains me to a wider public.

Last week a listener sent me the lyrics to a song her mom sang, after hearing Amy Carol Webb's song about her mother. I sent her back the words to which I was familiar. The listener was amazed any once else knew the song, and had never encountered anyone who knew it. We have to sing it together she said, to see if htey are the same melody. Well, my mother recited the same lyrics as a poem when I was young.  That got me thinking about versions of songs. Today's show I call two versions, same song.  (Hello to new listener, long time folk fan, Susan from Long Island.)

Heres the poem/song that started the comparrison idea... (my version)

Little brown seed, oh little brown brother
Are you awake in the dark?
Here we lie , close to each other
Hark to the sound of the lark!

"Waken",  the Lark says "Waken and dress you,
Put on your green coat and gay
For the sun will come out and it will caress you,
Waken tis morning tis May"

Little Brown seed oh little brown brother
what kind of flower will you Be?
Ill be a poppy all bright like my mother 
Do be a poppy like me

WHAT! You're a sunflower. Oh how I shall miss you
When you've grown golden and tall
But I will send all the bees up to kiss you
Little brown brother, good bye."
