Subject: thanksgiving song wanted
From: GUEST,Daniel
Date: 29 Sep 00 - 05:05 AM

HI out there ! Im searching for a song i heard in the tv series "Dr. Quinn - Medicine woman" . It was sung by Johnny Cash, and it was a thanks giving song. i can remember some lines. the beginning was something like "weve come to this time in this season, when family and friends ...???? and then there was a chorus that ended always with "Im thanking the Lord he made you". Who can tell me if somebody recorded this song(cause i couldnt find a recording by Johnny Cash!)? can someone tell me the lyrics? Waiting for answer, Daniel

Daniel,

You might check roughstock.com. It is a country western site and has a reasonable search engine. The song might be on there.

Daniel, if by any chance you're checking this thread after such a long time, here are the lyrics to the song. I might have made some mistakes while transcribing them. I recorded it some time ago straight from the TV, using a voice recorder, so the quality of the recording is rather poor. Anyway, this is what I got from it. Hope somebody'll correct me.


"Thanksgiving"

We've come to this time in the season
When the family and friends gather near
To offer a prayer of Thanksgiving
For blessings we've known through the year

To join hands and thank the Creator
Now when Thanksgiving is due
And this year when I count my blessings
I'm thanking the Lord He made you

I'm grateful for the laughter of children
The sun and the wind and the rain
The colour of blue in your sweet eyes
And here's one that sounds like:
"The sight of a highball in train" :^)
Yes, I know it doesn't make much sense... Anyone, please...?

The moonrise over the prairie
And old love that you've made new
And this year when I count my blessings
I'm thanking the Lord He made you

And when the time comes to be going
It won't be in sorrow and tears
I'll kiss you goodbye and I'll go on the way
Grateful for all of the years

I'd thank for all that you gave me
For teaching me what love can do
And Thanksgiving Day for the rest of my life
I'm thanking the Lord He made you


Karolina

I bet that that was supposed to be "the sight of a high-ballin' train," where highball is a verb meaning that a train is travelling at top speed.

If I were singing this song, I would change "the blue in your eyes" to "the love in your eyes." I have too many nieces with beautiful brown eyes to promulgate the theory that blue eyes are the ticket. (Folk process.)

Thanks, Leeneia! Good job. The next step will be to get the chords to this song. It's really a nice one. I promise to post the chords if I get someone to write 'em. I can't :^o

I how I wish I could find this song somewhere to purchase. I love it and have looked everywhere but am beginning to think he never recorded it? Sad.
