You oughta get Kendall's tape. You really oughta get Kendall's tape. Dick'll probably sell you one if you ask him politely. It's on there, and Mrs. Ravoon, which I hadn't heard for years, and badly wanted the words to also, is as well.

Buying that tape was the smartest thing I did at Old Songs except for pitching the tent on a high, dry spot; going to bed before I got drunk; and camping with the portolet aquisition squa...but I forget, I know nothing.

Peter.

Kendall is Kendall Morse who is one of the old regulars on here, who has a cassette of his songs and stories, called "Beginner's Luck." I stumbled on it at Dick Greenhaus's CD and Tape sales booth at the Old Songs festival, and bought it blind, and found it to be excellent.

I use Midchuck as a screen name because I sing with a trio called Woodchucks' Revenge. One of the other two members (my wife) is littler than me, the other, Sandy Morse, is larger. So I am the middle Woodchuck, so... (Sandy is on here as bigchuck, of course.)

Peter.

Hi Mindy, I agree with Midchuck buy Kendal's tape. When I saw Midchuck with a copy at Old Songs I enquired as to where he got it and bought a copy for myself. I have to say that it has been played more than any other in my collection. Cheers Bill

Kendall won't send me a copy. He said that if I said 100 nice things about him, he'd think about it. That was 2 months ago and I'm 293 in the hole at the moment. I'm hoping to improve soon and get back to the 100, but since he's such a cantankerous ol' poop with a defunct sex life, it ain't real easy.

Hmmm...that's 295....DAMN!!

Well, maybe it's time to give in and buy one, Spaw. Kendall, how does one do such a thing?

ASHES ON THE SEA
(Bruce Phillips)

What is this tune I hear repeating
Sprung from the careless seed you've sown?
Our songs will come and go like seasons,
And bloom or fade all on their own.

CHORUS:
Now I know I will not find you
You're gone from all but memory.
For I am told that one who loves you
Has strewn your ashes on the sea.

I stepped outside fore just a moment
To turn around and look on my own face
You are the shadow just behind me
The old man I reach out to embrace.

It's one thing to look upon a picture
Another still to read the pages through
Perhaps to search along the wayside
Hoping I might find a trace of you.

Your dust cloud still drifts across the footprints
Your best friend's still standing there alone
Your boxcars still keep the lovers parted
Your little boys still run away from home.

What is this tune you hear repeating
Sprung from the careless seed I've sown?
Our songs will come and go like seasons
And bloom and fade all on their own.

LAST CHORUS (sing twice):
Now I know we will not find you
You're gone from all but memory.
For I am told that one who loves you
Has strewn your ashes on the sea.

Tune: similar to Lorena

JRO & CB ^^

This old guy has been around forever. I saw him on the TODAY SHOW a number of times, also on Charles Kuralts ON THE ROAD. He is a bit out of the loop, but, you have to be pretty good to record for Folk Legacy. Maybe I'm also strange, but, I have all of his records. (You dont get much for 10 bucks these days)
