Frankie Lyr Req/Add: Midnight on the Water (John Croziat) (26) Lyr Add: MIDNIGHT ON THE WATER (John Croziat) 11 Dec 99


MarkF,

The one Kate Wolf sang goes like this:

VERSE 1: There are times when I am blue thinking of you and me
At midnight on the water And how it use to be
There were stars among the trees in some old memories I know
At midnight on the water not so long ago.

CHORUS: Though they're gone the scenes were there
Like floating dreams as in a mirror
Made by the moon upon the water
And our love was never stronger
But the picture was broken by the waves we left behind
At Midnight on the water once upon a time.

VERSE 2: There are times when I am blue thinking of you and me
At midnight on the water and how it use to be
In the stillness of the lake Where these thoughts take me again
At midnight on the water do you remember when.

REPEAT CHORUS

These are the lyrics she sang as near as I can remember them. I can't tell you what recording it's on as I lost the custody battle. It's sung pretty closely, if not exactly, to the aforementioned fiddle tune. It's a beautiful haunting song that is great to sing.

Does anyone know if Ron Kavana ever recorded his version?

Frankie
