Subject: Charlottetown - the song
From: GUEST,pmclung@lps.org
Date: 02 Oct 00 - 11:58 AM

Hi! I am a library media specialist in Lincoln Nebraska and a music teacher is using a song entitled "Charlottetown" and wants to know some background info about the song. It has lyrics about Charlottetown is burning down...Goodbye Liza Jane. Does anyone know if an actual event took place to cause the song to be written. The music students want to know the story behind the song. Thanks!

The version I know goes "Charleston town is burning down." It is probably a song that has been customized to have local references. Don't know what the original version would be.

Do a 30 day refresher on the Mudcat Home Page and then scroll down to the thread "Re Charlotte Town", the last entry was on September 19th of this year. This should provide some of the answers or information.

If I knew how, I'd give you a LBCT (Little Blue Clicky Thigh) to take you right there, but I'm new to this html stuff.

OK. I've looked at my html guide. Let's see if this works. Click here. I won't know if this will work until after I submit the message, so good luck.

In Girl scouts we sang only one verse and chorus and did it as a round, thusly:

Charlotte Town is burning down
Goodbye Goodbye
Burning down to the ground
Goodbye Liza Jane

Aintcha mighty sorry
Goodbye Goodbye
Aintcha mighty sorry
Goodbye Liza Jane

Colorado, circa 1970, Flying G Ranch
CD

whoops, added that to the wrong thread. Oh well, what I was going to say here was that my camp counselors thought it meant a place called Charlotte, rather than Charlottetown.

I learned this, roughly as above, as "Scarlet Town" with some of the Liza Jane verses referred to in Robby's blue clicky thread. This was from a folk singer in England in the mid 60s.

In Barb'ry Allen, it's Charlotte town, isn't it? I think I assumed it was Charlotte, North Carolina. But is it older, as in from England?

The town of Charloton in Prince Edwards Island Canada,with much of the rest of the island ,was davestated by a fire. The date was some time in the middle 1800s .Could this be the origin of the song?

Judy Henske cut a version with quiet a few verses in 1964 on her "High Flying Bird" album.

In 1866 there was a fire in Charlottetown, PEI, Canada. The fire destroyed most of the town. I can't find any information on "Liza Jane" though.
