03/22/17 - NNHS Newsletter - May the Good Lord Bless and Keep You

I found you and I lost you,
All on a golden day,
But when I dream of you, dear,
It is always brimming May.


 - Paul Laurence Dunbar

(27 June 1872 - 09 Feb 1906)


Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   I was needing to hear the soothing sounds of Jim Reeves today.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_the_Good_Lord_Bless_and_Keep_You:

"May the Good Lord Bless and Keep You" is a popular song by Meredith Willson, originally published in 1950.

The song is now considered a standard, recorded by many artists.

It was used as Tallulah Bankhead's theme song for her NBC radio program, "The Big Show." She recited the words in her ultra husky voice. The show featured many of the big stars of the day, and they would join Tallulah in reciting the words, one line per star, which made a memorable ending for the show.

However, it was most popular when it was regularly sung by Kate Smith on her early 50's TV show as the closing song. (Kate Smith enjoyed her own personal renaissance in the 70's when the Philadelphia Flyers (Pro Hockey Team) asked her to sing God Bless America at their most important games.)

A recording with Eddy Arnold, The Tennessee Plough Boys and his Guitar was made in New York City on December 13, 1950. It was released by RCA Victor Records as catalog number 20-0425 (in USA) and by EMI on the His Master's Voice label as catalog number MH 148.

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 03/21/17:

A passenger train was creeping along, painfully slow. Finally, it creaked to a complete halt. A passenger saw a conductor walking by outside.

"What's going on?" she yelled out the window.

"Cow on the track!" replied the conductor.

Ten minutes later, the train resumed its slow pace. Within five minutes, however, it stopped again.

The woman saw the same conductor walking by again. She leaned out the window and yelled, "What happened? Did we catch up with the cow again?"

May the Good Lord Bless and Keep You

Words and Music by
Meredith Willson (18 May 1902 15 June 1984), 1950

[As recorded by
Jim Reeves (20 Aug 1923 31 July 1964) on "Songs to Warm the Heart", 1959)]


May the good Lord bless and keep you, whether near or far away.
May you find that long-awaited golden day today.
May your troubles all be small ones, and your fortune ten times ten.
May the good Lord bless and keep you 'til we meet again.

May you walk with sunlight shining and a bluebird in ev'ry tree.
May there be a silver lining back of ev'ry cloud you see.
Fill your dreams with sweet tomorrow. Never mind what might have been.
May the good Lord bless and keep you 'til we meet again.

May the good Lord bless and keep you 'til we meet ('til we meet),
'Til we meet ('til we meet) again.
