Lyr/Chord Req: The Winding Stream (Carter Family)

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

Lyrics copied from http://www.icdc.com/~fmoore/carterfamily/winding_stream.htm

THE WINDING STREAM
(The Carter Family)

Oh, give to me a winding stream--
It must not be too wide--
Where waving leaves from maple trees
Do meet from either side.
The water must be deep enough
To float a small canoe,
With no one else but you.

CHORUS: Do not disturb my waking dream:
The splendor of that winding stream,
Flower in my canoe.
Her eyes they looked me through.
A maiden fair with golden hair
Is very much like you.

The sparkling trout beneath the bank
Does leave his hiding place.
Kingfisher from the bough above
So eager to give chase.
The spreading branches overhead,
The sunlight peeking through,
When looking, dear, at you.

[Recorded 10/13/32 Camden, NJ.]

My favorite version is by Carlene Carter on her Little Acts Of Treason CD, 1995. You might want to look for that.

The language of this song strikes me as victorian, almost Romantic in tone and diction. Yet, I can find no reference for it prior to AP Carter.

In my ear the language of this poem-like song is quite different than APs writing and adaption.

Does anyone know or suspect where this song may have come from?

Yo, Chance:


"Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

A key to the underlying character of Carlene Carter's 1995 album is the presence of former NRBQ stalwart Al Anderson, who co-wrote four of the 12 songs with Carter and played lead guitar on eight tracks. Carter shares the NRBQ philosophy that traditional eccentricities are more interesting than traditional verities, and she marries unpolished garage-rock rhythms to her excitable vocals about the romantic action down at the local honky tonk. She helps her father, Carl Smith, reprise his 1955 hit, "Loose Talk," while her mama June Carter and her stepdad Johnny Cash help Carlene sing her great-uncle A.P. Carter's "The Winding Stream." At the same time, various members of Prince's Revolution band, Tom Petty's Heartbreakers and the Desert Rose Band are also on hand. The result is a vibrant brand of country-rock which has more in common with Chrissie Hynde than Linda Ronstadt.--Geoffrey Himes"

Sorry. The implication is that AP wrote it. Is that so?

According to the late Dr Charles Wolfe, the piece came to them from a fan in British Columbia. Sara Carter recalls that he sent the words only and that it was titled something like 'Flower in My Canoe'. A.P. Carter rearranged the words, the trio worked up a melody and Ralph Peer changed the title.

THE WINDING STREAM

The song is actually recorded in Bb so the chords shown are with a capo on the first fret.

[A]Oh give to me
A winding stream
It must not be too [E] wide
Where waving leaves
From maple trees
Do meet from either [A] side
The water must
Be deep enough
To float a small [D] canoe
With [A] no one [E] else but you

[A]Do not disturb
My waking [E]dream
The splendor of
That winding [A] stream
Flower in my canoe
Her eyes they looked me [D]through
[A] A maiden fair
With [D] golden hair
Is [A] very [E] much [A] like you

The sparkling trout
Beneath the bank
Does leave his hiding place
