Jon Bartlett Lyr Req: The Northern Lights Are Gleaming (8) Lyr Add: DOUKHOBOR GIRLS 17 Nov 09


The first line of your song, Beeliner, reminded me of another song sung by the same informant:

THE DOUKHOBOR GIRLS

Well you've heard about the New York girls with all their flair and flash
Of the frisky girls from 'Frisco you've been told
And the fame of France's daughters has been heard on all the waters
And the English girls are worth their weight in gold
To ramble with a Scottish lassie's just like being in heaven
Some like an Irish colleen on their knee
But you give me a Doukhobor girl and you can have the rest
If she's not a Doukhobor she's no good for me.

Chorus
Oh the Doukhobor girls are goad enough for me
They are sweeter than the cherries on the tree
They are just the dandy dears, I've been lovin' them all for years
Oh the Doukhobor girls are good enough for me (Ch. #2 + 3: Now the..)

Well I know a lot of fellows very fond of foreign blood
They rave about that Asiatic charm
Some think there's nothing finer than to love the girl from China
Or to hold an Ethiopian in their arms
Some fellows are never happy unless they're flirting with a Jappy
Or dangling a Spaniard on their knee
But you give me a Doukhobor girl and you can have the rest
If she's not a Doukhobor she's no good for me.

Chorus

Well I have got a Doukhobor girl she is my very own
She simply is the sunlight of my life
And last night in the moonlight as we wandered all alone
She promised me that she would be my wife
And out behind the chicken-coop last night at ten to ten
I never thought such happiness could be
When she said she would be mine oh the utmost bliss became divine
When I kissed her she says Joe you're the sheik for me.

Chorus

Jon Bartlett
