DT Lyrics:



Subject: Lyr Req: Liza Jane
From: CelesteF
Date: 13 Oct 03 - 12:04 PM

I'm learning a tune called "Liza Jane" (not Lil Liza Jane)from my banjo teacher and I'd like to learn the words too. My teacher doesn't know the words, except for a repeating phrase, "That's my Liza Jane."

I couldn't find this song in the DT. Does anyone know it?

Many Liza Jane verses. Fiddlers Companion at Ceolas might help- Search
Enter Liza Jane in Search blank.

(not sure if the above link will work. If not, use http://www.ceolas.org/tunes/#index, then select Fiddlers Companion and enter Liza Jane in the Search blank.)

Not the usual tune. You can download it.

Nathan,

Thanks for pointing me to that thread. It's a beaut!

The song I'm looking for isn't there, alas. Q pointed me to a site that gave me the title, though -- Big Liza Jane. I thought my banjo teacher was making a joke, distinguishing the tune from Lil Liza Jane, but apparently that's the real title. Now if only I could find the words.

I can only find references / samples as a tune - there don't seem to be any references to words existing.
I suspect that it is just a dance tune with a title which is a sort of "joke" reference to an earlier tune.
It is, however, a nice bouncy melody - a good foot-tapper.
