07/16/19 - NNHS Newsletter - There's a Long, Long Trail

“You have heard the beat of the off-shore wind,
And the thresh of the deep-sea rain;
You have heard the song - how long? how long?
Pull out on the trail again!”

- Rudyard Kipling
(30 Dec 1865 - 18 Jan 1936)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

        My mama (the late Maxine Frix Buckley - John Marshall HS - '25) (19 May 1908 - 15 Feb 1999) used to sing this WWI era song to   my sister (Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) and me when we were little girls. Sometimes she still does.

BONUS - There's a Long Long Trail - clip from Oh! What a Lovely War (1969)


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/There%27s_a_Long_Long_Trail_A-Winding:

"There's a Long, Long Trail" is a popular song of World War I. The lyrics were by Stoddard King (1889-1933) and the music by Alonzo "Zo" Elliott, both seniors at Yale.[1] It was published in London in 1914, but a December, 1913 copyright for the music is claimed by Zo Elliott.

In Elliott's own words to Marc Drogin shortly before his death in 1964, he created the music as an idle pursuit one day in his dorm room at Yale in 1913. King walked in, liked the music and suggested a first line. Elliott sang out the second, and so they went through the lyrics. And they performed it -- with trepidation -- before the fraternity that evening. The interview was published as an article in the New Haven Register and later reprinted in Yankee Magazine. It then appeared on page 103 of "The Best of Yankee Magazine" [ISBN 0-89909-079-6] In the interview he recalled the day and the odd circumstances that led to the creation of this historic song.[2]

Often the answer to our prayer does not come while we’re on our knees but while we’re on our feet serving the Lord and serving those around us. Selfless acts of service and consecration refine our spirits remove the scales from our spiritual eyes and open the windows of heaven. By becoming the answer to someone’s prayer we often find the answer to our own.

- Dieter F. Uchtdorf
(b. 06 Nov 1940)

There's a Long, Long Trail

Lyrics by Stoddard King (1889-1933)

Music by Alonzo "Zo" Elliott (1891-1964), 1914


Nights are growing very lonely,
Days are very long;
I'm a-growing weary only
List'ning for your song.
Old remembrances are thronging
Thro' my memory
Till it seems the world is full of dreams
Just to call you back to me.

Chorus:

There's a long, long trail a-winding
Into the land of my dreams,
Where the nightingales are singing
And a white moon beams.
There's a long, long night of waiting
Until my dreams all come true;
Till the day when I'll be going down
That long, long trail with you.

All night long I hear you calling,
Calling sweet and low;
Seem to hear your footsteps falling,
Ev'ry where I go.
Tho' the road between us stretches
Many a weary mile,
I forget that you're not with me yet
When I think I see you smile.

Chorus:

There's a long, long trail a-winding
Into the land of my dreams,
Where the nightingales are singing
And a white moon beams.
There's a long, long night of waiting
Until my dreams all come true;
Till the day when I'll be going down
That long, long trail with you.
