01/19/20 - NNHS Newsletter - Fare Thee Well

To part is the lot of all mankind. The world is a scene of constant leave-taking,
and the hands that grasp in cordial greeting today, are doomed ere long to unite
for the the last time, when the quivering lips pronounce the word - 'Farewell.”

- R.M. Ballantyne
(24 Apr 1825 - 08 Feb 1894)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   It's time once more to hear from some of my favorite crooners for a few days, beginning with the incomparable Ken Curtis.  There is no midi file attached to this.

BONUS - Fare Thee Well - Ken Curtis on Paladin - "Monk shocks Paladin (and others) by his beautiful singing voice, in the HAVE GUN, WILL TRAVEL episode: 'Love's Young Dream.' (1960)"


"Dink's Song" (sometimes known as "Fare Thee Well") is an American folk song played by many folk revival musicians such as Pete Seeger, Fred Neil, Bob Dylan and Dave Van Ronk, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Cisco Houston as well as more recent musicians like Jeff Buckley. The song tells the story of a woman deserted by her lover when she needs him the most.

The first historical record of the song was by ethnomusicologist John Lomax in 1909, who recorded it as sung by an African American woman called Dink, as she washed her husband's clothes in a tent camp of migratory levee-builders on the bank of the Greater Calhoun Bayou River, a few miles from Houston, Texas and the University of Houston.

The first publication of the music was in American Ballads and Folk Songs, edited by Lomax and his son, Alan Lomax, and published by Macmillan in 1934...

As with many traditional songs, there are numerous versions of the lyrics. The version first published in American Ballads and Folk Songs is rendered in an approximation of African American vernacular English...[3]

Arne's Cowl - Crochet Mens Cowl - "Wondering who’s the smiling man on this blog post wearing this crochet mens cowl? Well my friends, that’s my brother! He came all the way from Norway to visit me here in Germany and I was so happy that I had to crochet him something! I already had this amazing soft yarn lying in my stash just begging to be turned into something warm and cozy! It had to go quick because my brother and my father, who also came with him, wasn’t going to stay so long. Therefore I’ve made a crochet mens cowl for him, and it turned out pretty great so I thought I would share the pattern with you!"

Fare Thee Well

- Traditional Folk Song

Sung by Ken Curtis (02 July 1916 – 28 Apr 1991) on Paladin, "Love's Young Dream", 1960

If I had wings like Noah's dove
I'd fly up the river to the one I love
Fare thee well my honey fare thee well

Well I had a man who was long and tall
Who moved his body like a cannon ball
Fare thee well my honey fare thee well

I remember one evening in the pouring rain
In my heart was an aching pain
Fare thee well my honey fare thee well

Bloody river was muddy and wild
Can't give a bloody for my unborn child
Fare thee well my honey fare thee well

Sure as a bird flying high above
Life ain't worth living without the one you love
Fare thee well my honey fare thee well

Fare thee well my honey fare thee well
