sing4peace Jody Gibson/Cranky Yankee's daughter seeks stories (29) RE: Jody Gibson/Cranky Yankee's daughter seeks stories 21 Sep 09

Thanks to you all for the nice reviews and support. It makes me very happy that you are getting something out of my songs. I just love the idea of Mal and my Dad hanging together. I hope it's alright if I use those nice quotes. (Yes, Malvina was a great influence. I mentioned how in a Mudcat thread on the song "little boxes".)

Desert Dancer: Thanks for the update on Rosie.
Thank you Azizi for the nice plug and the hyperlink. I don't know how to do that.

Open Mike: Thanks for the tip on finding my Dad's threads. Thanks also for checking out my music. I did give credit to Si Kahn, Peggy Seeger, Malvina Reynolds and Donna Gibson for their songs. Unfortunately the box on Myspace cuts it short. If you check on the "lyrics" for more information, I give all credits. Ditto for any of the other songs I put up there that I didn't write myself. I am not thrilled about using myspace but I am fairly isolated these days due to chronic health issues (blah, blah, blah). I don't perform out of Rhode Island much and the internet at least allows me to share my music.

Songs I did write:
If I Were God, The Glorious Plan, What Makes Johnny So Mean?, A Lullaby in War Time, Not Another Mother's Son/Not Another Father's Daughter.

My step-mother, Donna Gibson (a mighty fine songwriter and singer in her own write ;-)) wrote Just like a Man and Jimmy and the Preacher.

Haddocker: The coffeehouse you are describing was "The Mouthpiece" and was run by two ministers, Stan _____ and Bill Brown, a fabulous blues player who I lost track of years ago. The Mouthpiece started out in a building at One Benefit St. in Providence, moved to South Main St. to a building that once stood where the Roger Williams Memorial Park is now, and then it moved to Snow St. where it resided among the X-rated Bookstores and other fringy elements. That's where it was when you played in 1970. I was 16-17 then.

I'm glad that you had your music to accompany you and heal you on your journey. I know how it can be to have a song break you apart. Thanks for sharing that.


Jody's older and wiser daughter,
