Joys of Camp Runamuck


My ankles are swollen, my toenails are chipped
I have nodes on my larynx and a bite on my lip
The skeeters know every red bloodcell by name
And the words I've forgotten would drive you insane

My bones they are weary from sleeping outdoors
My fingers are aching from playing strange chords
My voice sounds like gravel being poured from a truck,
And I owe all this pleasure to Camp Runamuck

We are Runamuck Folkies, stout heros are we
For we know every lyric and we play every key
And we pound on the banjo til the wild hills do ring
And at three in the morning we wake up and sing!

Oh, the neighbors are moving and selling their home
The eagles sing back-up, where the summer winds moan,
And the Ellensburg bobbies are bemoaning their fate
And the Police Blotter knows us by name, town and state.

Come give us a tuneing and sing us a round
Of a song that will shiver the hills and the ground!
Change keys, use the capo, and don't eat the ducks,
Oh, the times they are jolly at Camp Runamuck

There's a red-headed Princess they say is to blame
And the folkies insist they are here in her name
Though the cops know her address, her face and her look
But the folks won't quit singing long enough to be booked!

So break out your chanties, your ballads and songs
And sing them all right if you can't sing them wrong,
Run amuck, little folkies, and if you fall  too hard
There are stables unfilled at the Large Mammal Ward.

There are skeeters and kittens and banjos and brew,
And capos and tenors, and baritones too
And your voice grows as coarse as an old gravel truck
When you sing for the weekend at Camp Runamuck.

For Lane,the pleasure was all mine, I really enjoyed our music sessions and glad we connected. Meeting was rewarding.
Folks, I am here to tell you that the Mudcat has yet another talented singer/musician who has really good taste in selection of songs. Lane plays and sings the same songs I do. Look forward to more.

Amos, you forgot a verse:

Well, Camp Runamuck's not just for men
And women to revel and frolic chèz Jen;
There are felines observing from rafter and bar,
And a four-legged tenor who sings C.C.R.

So run up some chords for the dog and the kittens
Our ears they have wooed, and our hearts they have smitten!
For you just haven't lived, through your wandering and strollin'
'Til you've heard Mudcat Angus keep Proud Mary rolling!

Cho:

We are Runamuck Folkies, stout heros are we
For we know every lyric and we play every key
And we pound on the banjo til the wild hills do ring
And at three in the morning we wake up and sing!

Well.....I hesitated to say anything before, but Angus has a NEW favourite song. He insisted that I call his "Auntie Kat" so she could hear it first, before I spilled the beans.....

...While recording Lane's tape, we hit the spot where Mag sings Waltzing With Bears and his ears perked right up. Yup, you guessed it. The mutt now "Worf Worf Worfzses" with bears. All of the sudden his head is swelling up so big his collar hardly fits anymore, he wants a star on his food bowl, and Sully is contracting to be his agent: "Hey, man, 10% of the people-food you get, that's my take..."

I tried explaining to him that he's hardly likely to make it big singing folk music, but he just gives me the puppy-eyed look that says "You don't have to be a star, baby, to be in my show." Hopeless creature.

Well, JenEllen, you almost got me a ticket this morning. I tossed your cassette in the player on my way to work (6:30AM)and was reduced to tears by the folk process and Itsy Bitsy Spider and WILD THING. By the way: Who did put the bop in the bop shebop shebop? I'd like to shake his hand.

I was hoping for a chorus of "Desiree" but the crowd settled into the "Auctioneer Song" and I arrived at the office. More tomorrow. Thanks - I needed that!BR>Mary
