Bupkes May Shanty Session @ The Press Room (NH) (23) RE: May Shanty Session @ The Press Room (NH) 24 May 11


Linn, at about 5:55 pre-Rapture time, that was "It Soon Be Done" that I felt inspired to contribute. I'd learned it from a New Golden Ring record. and it can be improvised just like Dianne's "Martin Said to His Man":

It soon be done with trouble and trial
   When we meet on the other shore
   I'm going to shake hands with all of the elders
   Tell all the people 'good morning'
   Sit down beside my Jesus
   Sit down and rest a while

It soon be done with weeping and moaningÉ

It soon be done with fear and hatredÉ

It soon be done with trouble and trialÉ

It soon be done with back-talkin' childrenÉ

It soon be done with gasoline taxesÉ

It soon be done with trouble and trialÉ


And my "Portsmouth Town" was of course Peter Bellamy's "Yarmouth Town", mutatis mutandis.

Marty
