"Tall Pine Trees" is a great Peter Yarrow song, with partially unintelligible (to me) lyrics. Anyone got them transcribed? Chord progrssion is a bit unique - that'd be a bonus. Many thanks!

Re: Tall Pine Trees, aren't they typed out in the liner to the "Peter" album. I haven't seen it for years but I have it in a box in "The Attic of No Return." I'll try to find it but I have get other words out for Trish and she'll kill me if you come first.

Don,

You got the album right. I checked but there are no lyrics anywhere on the dust jacket of may copy. In fact, all of the song titles are not on the sleeve. I had to look on the center disc to verify the song was even there. There is a note that Maria Muldaur sing on it. So one of us is going to have to transcribe it. I will shoot for this weekend unless someone else comes up with it. At least my album is in "the basement of easy access" rather than the "Attic of no return"

TALL PINE TREES (Peter Yarrow)

Before I leave let me tell you why I'm going
I'll try to speak in such a way that you won't be afraid of listening
Too many words been spoke without no understanding
And I'd hate to add another wound to the times we had good loving

CHORUS: But O when I think of the tall pine trees growing
The silver mists of snow all around me blowing
I'll miss the gentle times and the fire place a-warming
Perhaps I'll turn my head away to hide the tears a-falling

Some say I have dishonored you through foolishness and folly
The question's not in where that lies, but if you're standing by me
I do not need to hear the words to know you truthful answer
Your eyes that once were home to me now tell me I'm a stranger.

Chorus

I'm bound to be a wanderer, I'll never take another
I'll catch a merchant ship tonight and sail to foreign waters
I'll judge no man for what he's done and no man will I bother
And I hope to find some peace again and cleanse my soul of anger.

Chorus;

La la la (through the melody as many times as you want until you get tired of it)

Rich,

I see you've been to the Basement of Easy Access

My only diference is in the line;

The questions not in "were they lies?"

But if you're standing by me.

Otherwise I don't have to type out the lyrics as I was prepared to.

Regards

Don

Don,

I've got no problem with your version of that line. It is the one spot I listened to about five times and still wasn't quite sure what I was hearing. Once I went to the "basement of easy access" I had to return to the "main floor of the only turntable" and then back down to the "BOEA" where the computer reposes. Down, up, down derry down.

It was my original message (dddmusic) that I posted, so thank you, Rich and Don, for the words and the effort! So now I have to ask - what's the Basement of Easy Access?! (I have a garage of eternal clutter - same genre?) Doug

Doug,

Thats about right. Just Conan had the "Tree of Woe" and the "Wheel of Pain". I have "The Closet of Chaos" and "The Attic of No Return".
