Lyr Add: Buddies in the Saddle (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

Due to renewed Carter Family interest, I'd better start sending in my Carter lyrics...Tiger

BUDDIES IN THE SADDLE — Carter Family

One stormy day, me and my buddy
Started on our roundup ride.
The wind and dust blew hard around us,
My buddy strayed far from my side.

    CHORUS
    We were buddies in the saddle,
    We were buddies in our home,
    We were buddies herdin' cattle,
    We were buddies everywhere we roamed.

I'll ne'er forget the day I found him,
He was so weak he could not speak.
I'll ne'er forget the smile he gave me,
Then the poor boy fell asleep.

I took him up in my saddle
And carried him across the plain.
My mother nursed him every moment
To try to make him well again.

    CHORUS

I've never had a pal so near me,
He took the blame for everything.
I'd die for him just any moment,
And for me he'd do the same.

But now by buddy's gone and left me,
And it's so hard to struggle 'long.
So hard to b'lieve that he has left me,
I can't realize that he has gone.

    CHORUS

Hey Tiger:

This is a great one, recorded for ARC in 1940, the last sessions of Sara, A.P., and Maybelle Carter would make together. I believe that Maybelle wrote it as well.

Joe, if you are still looking for the tune to this, I happened to catch it off of Hober the other day and could send you an email with it. I think it was Bob Bovie doing it. Sounded great. I didn't get all of it, but enough to get the tune. Wonderful song!

Oh, jeez, MMario, I'll have to see if I kept and labeled the tape I had this on. I have the music keyboard set up to do midis again, so if i find it, will do and email it. In the meantime, I did find this on google, from 1997:

Bob Bovie and Gail Heil have made a great CD and/or tape of old-time country songs and tunes with fiddle, banjo, guitar and autoharp. $16 and $11 post paid. Rt. 2, Box 24, Spring Grove, MN 55974; 507- 498-5452.

Thanks,

kat
