11/21/19 - NNHS Newsletter - Without a Song

“Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and
go to the grave with the song still in them.”

Henry David Thoreau
(12 July 1817 - 06 May 1862)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Without a song - that's where I was before I heard Frank Sinatra sing this on the radio!

BONUS - Without a Song - Frank Sinatra


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

"Without a Song" is a popular song with music by Vincent Youmans and lyrics by Billy Rose and Edward Eliscu, published in 1929. It was included in the musical play, Great Day.

... Lawrence Tibbett, Nelson Eddy and Frank Sinatra recorded versions of the song with what appears to be the original lyrics, including the line, "A darkie's born, but he's no good no how, without a song." In subsequent recordings, Sinatra didn't use the term "darkie", and later recorded versions included the altered text "a man is born, but he's no good no how, without a song..."[1]

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 11/20/15:

“Sometimes, the truth may just seem too straightforward, too plain, and too simple for us to fully appreciate its great value. So we set aside what we have experienced and know to be true in pursuit of more mysterious or complicated information... When we chase after shadows, we are pursuing matters that have little substance and value.”

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

Without a Song

Music by Vincent Youmans (27 Sept 1898 - 05 Apr 1946)

Lyrics by Billy Rose (06 Sept 1899 – 10 Feb 1966) and
Edward Eliscu (02 Apr 1902 – 18 June 1998), for the film Great Day, 1929


Without a song the day would never end
Without a song the road would never bend
When things go wrong a man ain't got a friend
Without a song

That field of corn would never see a plow
That field of corn would be deserted now
A man is born but he's no good no how
Without a song

I got my trouble and woe but, sure as I know, the Jordan will roll
And I'll get along as long as a song, strong in my soul

I'll never know what makes the rain to fall
I'll never know what makes that grass so tall
I only know there ain't no love at all
Without a song

[instrumental]

I've-a got my trouble and woe and, sure as I know, the Jordan will roll
And I'll get along as long as a song, strong in my soul

I'll-a never know what makes that rain to fall
I'll never know what makes the grass so tall
I only know there ain't no love at all
Without a song
