GUEST,diana Dainty Davey: What's a curly pow? (230* d) RE: Dainty Davey: What's a curly pow? 22 Aug 02

I first heard Dainty Davey sung by Shay Walker in 1969 at Puck Fair. I, too, questioned him about the curly pow. He had no answer which probably means it has more than one meaning. Never-the-less, the tune has stayed in my mind all these years and I often hum it to myself. Its beautiful and I encourage all you musicians out there to revive it. I'm sure curly pow means curly head but it might mean, "lay your head on my lap" which according to the music, seems right to me. I also heard light brigade which is lyrical as well, maybe even metaphorical. Its a song that is timeless and seems to defy logic and reason. Its a love song pure and simple.
