Carter Family Lyric Sites

DigiTrad:
ANCHORED IN LOVE
ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT?
ARE YOU TIRED OF ME MY DARLING
BLUE EYES
BUDDIES IN THE SADDLE
CHEWING GUM
DEAR COMPANION
DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH
GEORGIE ON THE IRT (parody on Engine 143)
GOD GAVE NOAH THE RAINBOW SIGN
GOLD WATCH AND CHAIN
I AIN'T GOT NO HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE
I CAN'T FEEL AT HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE
JUST A FEW MORE DAYS
LULU WALLS
RAILROADING ON THE GREAT DIVIDE
SAILOR ON THE DEEP BLUE SEA
SINGLE GIRL
THE CUBAN SOLDIER
THE LITTLE GYPSY GIRL
THE STORMS ARE ON THE OCEAN
THE WRECK ON THE C & O
WAVES ON THE SEA
YOU ARE MY FLOWER

There are often requests to the forum for lyrics of Carter Family songs. Those interested in the Carter Family, and who cannot afford the Bear Family boxed set, may like to bookmark these two sites for future reference. You may not agree with all the transcriptions, and will find discrepancies, but these generous souls have done the hard yards for us. The web can be a wonderfully generous place:

Carter Family 1

Carter Family 2

Have a great yuletide, Stewie.

Gee, I think it was just yesterday that I put #2 on our "links" page. Great minds think alike - right, Stewie?

Good stuff, although you're right about incorrect lyrics in some places, like "Bethel Nation Stand" and "little salvation band" instead of "Bethel Mission Band," but it is indeed a heroic effort and a few listens to Carter recordings could clear up the misheard lyrics.

LOL..wonder what A.P. and Sarah would have done with "They have killed the Earl of Murray and laid him on the green".........The internet has the potential to accelerate musical entropy...or to freeze it in one mode forever!

Bill, I have to point out that they killed the Earl of Moray, not Murray.

My pleasure. The one that I labelled #2 has been mentioned a few times in the forum - and now Mudcat linked by Joe - but these things are sometimes missed by those who would be most interested.

I got a beaut CD in the mail yesterday: Jody Stecher and Kate Brislin 'Songs of the Carter Family' Appleseed CD 1043. It has Larry Hanks adding bass vocals to several tracks and Suzy Thompson added on one track. There are 12 songs, including many less covered ones such as 'Bear Creek Blues', 'Away Out on the Old Saint Sabbath' and others. This is the loveliest tribute to the Carter Family since the truly wonderful 'Meeting In the Air' LP on Flying Fish by members of the Red Clay Ramblers - sadly, that gem has never made it to CD. Appleseed have also released a second volume from Warner Collection - 'Nothing Seems Better to Me: The Music of Frank Proffitt and North Carolina' Appleseed CD 1036. Indispensible.

--Stewie.

Stewie, a thousand thanks.

I have Kate and Jody's latest and love it, BUT I prefer Kay and Ginny's latest, "Bristol."
