Subject: Redwing - East Anglian Song and Tune
From: Albatross
Date: 25 Sep 02 - 10:51 AM

In the 1960's, and earlier, Topic records (Tony Engle, Reg Hall and others) made some valuable recordings of East Anglian hammer dulcimer, melodeon & fiddle players. One of their tunes is called 'Redwing' and played later by the Old Hat Band who have done a lot of good work in this area. In the old recording of 'Redwing' you can hear some old boy singing something about the "sun shines brightly in the Dardenelles". Anybody know the history of this song and the lyrics? Many thanks, Albatross

Yes, the tune's the same "Redwing" polka. I think Albatross is just trying to find out if anyone else has heard or knows those particular words.

I've heard the band play "Redwing" but I have to say I've never really listened to what was being sung in the background.

Sorry, Susan.
English Country Music Topic 12T296 for the tune Redwing as played by Walter Bulwer on fiddle, Billy Cooper on dulcimer, Daisy Bulwer on piano accompanied by Reg Hall on melodeon, Mervyn Plunkett on snare-drum and Russell Wortley on pipe-and-tabor.

This LP was made from a recording by Reg Hall and Mervyn Plunkett at Wlter and Daisy's house in Shipdam, Norfolk in August 1962. The recordings have been reissued on CD by Topic with some added material as 'English Country Music' on Topic TSCD607. Very highly recommended.

Damn!! Message partly lost in cyberspace!!

What I meant to say was that:

Reg Hall quoted these lyrics (without giving a source; he probably thought that it was a well known ditty) in his notes to the tune Redwing on the Topic 1976 LP English Country Music: Topic 12T296, where the tune is played by:-
Walter Bulwer - Fiddle
Billy Cooper - Hammer Dulcimer
Daisy Bulwer - Piano
Reg Hall - Melodeon
Mervyn Plunkett - snare drum
Russell Wortley - Pipe-and-tabor

The LP, which influenced many English musicians, just as an earlier (very) limited edition of 99 copies had when released in 1965, was based on recordings made in the Bulwer's cottage in Shipdam, Norfolk in August 1962.

Topic recently reissued the recordings on CD as 'English Country Music' TSCD607 together with some additional material also recorded by Mervyn Plunkett from the Bulwers in 1960 and 1959, and with Scan Tester added playing concertina from 1966. Well worth listening to!

My dad (b 1922) used to sing this. He said he learnt it when he was a boy. Is "fusty" a corruption of fustian?

Original tune and song (Redwing, not the Charlie Chaplin parody) written by the great Kerrry Mills, who also wrote Whistling Rufus,( beloved by melodeon players and also a big hit for the Chris Barber Jazz Band) and "At a Georgia Camp Meeting, also a big early jazz number.

Subject: Lyr Add: CHARLIE CHAPLIN (from Oldham Tinkers)
From: Stewie
Date: 25 Sep 02 - 08:10 PM

I recall the parody from an old 'Oldham Tinkers' album. Fuller lyrics than the stanza posted above have been posted to the rec.music.folk newsgroup. The Oldham Tinkers sang most of these - in a children's songs medley, I think:

CHARLIE CHAPLIN

And the moon shines bright on Charlie Chaplin
His boots are cracking for t' want of blacking
And his old fusty coat is wanting mending
Until they send him to the Dardanelles

Charlie Chaplin, meek and mild, swiped a sausage from a child
When the child began to cry, Charlie socked him in the eye

Charlie Chaplin had no sense, he bought a fiddle for eighteen pence
And the only tune that he could play was Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ay

Charlie Chaplin went to France to teach the ladies how to dance
First your heel and then your toe; lift up your skirts and 'round you go

Charlie, Charlie, chook, chook, chook, went to bed with three white ducks
One died, Charlie cried, Charlie, Charlie, chook, chook, chook

One, two, three, O'leary, I saw my Auntie Sary
Standing in the door, O'leary, kissing Charlie Chaplin
--Stewie.

I think they got that additional material from Iona and Peter Opie; it certainly wasn't part of the original parody (or, I think, sung to the same tune), which seems to have been very widely known in the 1920s and '30s.

Many thanks, to the contributions on this Redwing song.

It seems a lot of Victorian, Music hall (eg Jenny Lind) and war time songs entered the folk tradition without having such a long antiquity but still having an equal contribution.

As seems to be commonly the case with folk tradition there is Scottish, Australian, American, Irish, various regional English variations,etc.

There is an old thread on the Wild Rover song originally noted down in Norfolk by Cecil Sharp which may have just been sung all over.

I think we all have a natural tendency to want to claim ownership to traditions and lay claim to their sources. Of course songs,tunes,dances must have started somewhere but does it really matter anyway.

I like to think there is a complex network of interconnections caused by many areas rich in tradition and by many travellers carrying stuff around and changing its form.

As always though we should respect people's traditions and not undermine their claims of ownership if only for the fact they are helping to keep them thriving.

The interesting thing about Redwing is that it's the tune which seems to have got into the traditional repertoire ... probably, in East Anglia, because it fits nicely with the East Anglian obsession with good polkas. The words were most likely known (there's a good parody of the song used as a rugby song - words not on the web as far as I can tell) but never really all that popular, at least around here (here being East Anglia). I remember it from my childhood so I think it must have been very popular around the 50s and 60s.

The moon shines bright on pretty Redwing
The night is dying the leaves sighing
And the little boys trousers they need patching
Where he's been scratching
Mosquito bites.

Mom was a Miami native (b. 1922) and she would sing the chorus to my brother and I as a lullabye.

Peggy Seeger made a recording of a song, the chorus being,
"You can`t scare me I`m sticking to the Union" to the tune of both verse and chorus of "Redwing". I recall the song starts:-
"There once was a Union maid
Who never was afraid
Of goons and ginks and company finks
And sheriff that made the raid.
One night at the Union hall........."
CH.
"You can`t scare me I`m sticking to the Union.

Learned in school in the early fifties

There once was an Indian Maid
and she was so afraid
that some Buckaroo would
Shove her up a few
while she was lying in the shade

Now some Buckaroo got wise
a twinkle in his eyes
a bloody great prick
just like a walking stick
he shoved it up her thighs

She said I'm not your wife
whipped out her Bowie knife
and with one mighty pass
cut his balls from his ass
His shagging days are over

Oh the moon shines so bright on Pretty Redwing
as she lays yawning
from night 'till morning
those Redskins balls are hanging as a warning
now they're adorning
her wigwam door.

The bit in between the two main "Redwing" themes that he plays is not part of the original tune - certainly not a middle eight 'cos "Redwing: just has two themes to it. I reckon it's another tune sandwiched in between to break it up a bit.

I can see why "Redwing" would be popular at a tunes sessions - the A theme twice through then the B theme twice through. The original sheet music has a quartet section to be sung if required!
