DT Lyrics:



Subject: Lyr Req: And I'll sing alleluia...
From: AllisonA(Animaterra)
Date: 12 Nov 03 - 07:54 AM

The chorus goes,
And I'll sing Alleluia,
And you'll sing Alleluia,
And we'll all sing Alleluia,
When we arrive at home.


It was sung at the celebration reception following Byron's funeral.
It's been on my mind ever since. Anyone got the verses?

I believe it is a Sacred Harp piece, I have heard Burke sing it... but I can't find it in any of my online sources.

Yup, and having the tune in your head may carry you a fur piece! Bouncy tune, too. Can you dance it and hum it and see where that leads?

I actually have a different tune; I'm wondering if my morris dance friends have more secular lyrics than these with the same chorus. I'll check. BTAIM, I still like these lyrics! Thanks again.

:~) The "tenor" part has the melody in most if not all Sacred Harp music. Maybe-- check the MIDI and isolate the tracks till you hear what you reckanize?

146 in the Sacred Harp. Try singing the words to Amazing Grace on the verse, and then the refrain as written. A lot of the older singers do it this way. -T

TNDARLN you beat me to it. Where have you been?

I actually like the pairing of Amazing Grace with this tune better than the usual tune for AG or the words for Hallelujah.

I finally got these words from a morris dancer friend. They're by Ian Robb:

Farewell old friend, it's time to go
You must be on your way
Do not let the parting grieve you so
Though dreary seems the day

Chorus:
And I'll sing Alleluia,
And you'll sing Alleluia,
And we'll all sing Alleluia
When we arrive at home

No saint you were while on this earth
You trod your path so wide
For saints do seldom venture forth
For fear they stray aside. CHO

If God there be some Pharisee
Of unforgiving ways
You must look for him for you must seek
To brighten up his days CHO

And when at Peter's gate you stand
With sins of flesh and wine
One son of his will take your hand
And lead you in to dine CHO

For friends may join and friends may part
And friends be born and die
Each song remains within the heart
Each spirit ever nigh CHO

Does anyone know if there's a recording of Ian Robbs version of this song?

Got a nice note from Ian Robb- it isn't on cd, it's on an older recording titled Rose and Crown. There are just a few copies of the cassette left. I got mine from Folk Legacy.
It has some great songs, some dated ones, but it's fun to hear young Ian sing! And the last song is the secular version of Halleluia, which Ian calls "Singer's Farewell".
