In the book, "The Education Of Little Tree," the narrator says, "Granma said when you come on something good, first thing you do is share it with whoever you can find; that way, the good spreads out where no telling it will go. Which is right." Well, I just heard a portion of a song on WMNF radio the other night, looked up info via "Google," found the lyrics and ordered the album. It's by a singer/songwriter/picker named Pam Gadd and is available on her album called "The Long Road," from Vanguard. Just had to share this. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

Too bad this music thread was titled as BS, and was probably missed due to that.

~S~

I take it the song is called "All The Old Men Are Gone"?

Perhaps some kindhearted Mudelf will remove the "BS" from the thread name.

Actually, the thread title reminded me of the World War II-era song, "They're Either Too Young or Too Old" (lamenting the fact that eligible men of the songwriter's age had gone to fight the war)!

Sorry about that...yes the song title is "All The Old Men Are Gone." And sorry about the "BS." My fingers got ahead of my brain.

Too bad the citation that started this thread was from The Education of Little Tree. That book is a fraud, a supposed American Indian story, actually written by a former High Wizard of the KKK. I'd find a different book containing that sentiment, if I wanted the rest of my remarks to remain in good standing. IMHO

Say, Big Daddy, can you post the lyrics when you get the CD? Use this thread, and just change the title of your individual message to ADD: songname.
Don't worry too much if you put the wrong tag on a thread title. Most of the time, little elves notice them and whisk the wrong ones away...

I can only produce a few scraps from various samples—See the links below.


All the old men in my life are gone
Cold tractors...

...gone to Heaven, gone to glory, they've gone home,
Gone to be with their dear loved ones who have waited for so long.
What I'd give to sit upon the knee of my dear granddad's lap.
Oh, John or Uncle Jack, he was the favored one.
But all the old men are gone....

Dusty hats still hang upon their nails
In tribute to the sweated brows
...
Brogans sit behind forgotten doors.
Seems they could almost walk the floors,
Shoes that once left footprints that I walked on,
But all the old men are gone.

[Sung by Pam Gadd on The Long Road
Sung by Gail Wade on Journey.]

Here's the complete lyrics.

Great album, lots of good songs besides this one. My wife and I sang one, "I Will Grow in Love With You", at Fortunato and Suzette's wedding years ago.


All the old men in my life are gone
Cold tractors wait to plow
Tobacco pipes forever have burned out
Worn out walking sticks are laid to rest
Like callused hands across their chests
No longer holding on
For all the old men are gone

Dusty hats still hang upon their nails
In tribute to the sweated brows
And thousand plowed rows all paved over now
Brogans sit behind forgotten doors.
Seems they could almost walk the floors,
Shoes that once left footprints that I walked on,
But all the old men are gone

CHORUS:
Gone to Heaven, gone to glory, they've gone home,
Gone to be with their dear loved ones
Who have waited for so long.
What I'd give to sit upon the knee or my dear
Granddad's lap.
Old John or Uncle Jack, he was my favorite one.
But all the old men are gone

All the old men in my life are gone
And with them gone the hugs and laughs
No more treasured stories of the past
Things are mostly quiet on the porch
Even the rocking chair don't creak no more
But I'm sure proud to carry on
Since all the old men are gone

Hey, that GUEST was me, T.J., whose cookie needed resetting. But I wanted to make sure I got credit for all my effort ( !!! ) entering those lyrics.
