Every new Bob song (If any Bob song can actually be called "new" Razz ), begs the question "Who did he steal this one from? pirat

Here's one bob stole from that old Steve Goodman song "City of New Orleans:"

I don't find that song that was so similar to Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum... I remember it as serious stealing...

I've just caught up with this thread. These are great lyrics!

Lyrics to Tell Ol' Bill :

The river whispers in my ear
I've hardly a penny to my name
The heavens have never seemed so near
All my body glows with flame.

The tempest struggles in the air
And to myself alone I sing
It could sink me then and there
I can hear the echoes ring.

I tried to find one smilin' face
To drive the shadow from my head
I'm stranded in this nameless place
Lyin' restless in a heavy bed.

Tell me straight out if you will
Why must you torture me within?
Why must you come down off your high hill?
Throw my fate to the clouds and wind.

Far away in a silent land
Secret thoughts are hard to bear
Remember me you'll understand
Emotions we can never share.

You trampled on me as you passed
Left the coldest kiss upon my brow
All my doubts and fears have gone at last
I've nothing more to tell you now.

I walk by tranquil lakes and streams
As each new season's dawn awaits
I lay awake at night with troubled dreams
The enemy is at the gate.

Beneath the thunder-blasted trees
The words are ringin' off your tongue
The ground is hard in times like these
Stars are cold, the night is young.

The rocks are bleak, the trees are bare
Iron clouds go floatin' by
Snowflakes falling in my hair
Beneath the gray and stormy sky.

The evenin' sun is sinking low
The woods are dark, the town is too
They''ll drag you down, they run the show
Ain't no tellin' what they'll do.

Tell Ol' Bill when he comes home
Anything is worth a try
Tell him that I'm not alone
That the hour has come to do or die.

All the world I would defy
Let me make it plain as day
I look at you now and I sigh
How could it be any other way?
The river whispers in my ear
I've hardly a penny to my name
The heavens have never seemed so near
All my body glows with flame.

The tempest struggles in the air
And to myself alone I sing
It could sink me then and there
I can hear the echoes ring.

I tried to find one smilin' face
To drive the shadow from my head
I'm stranded in this nameless place
Lyin' restless in a heavy bed.

Tell me straight out if you will
Why must you torture me within?
Why must you come down off your high hill?
Throw my fate to the clouds and wind.

Far away in a silent land
Secret thoughts are hard to bear
Remember me you'll understand
Emotions we can never share.

You trampled on me as you passed
Left the coldest kiss upon my brow
All my doubts and fears have gone at last
I've nothing more to tell you now.

I walk by tranquil lakes and streams
As each new season's dawn awaits
I lay awake at night with troubled dreams
The enemy is at the gate.

Beneath the thunder-blasted trees
The words are ringin' off your tongue
The ground is hard in times like these
Stars are cold, the night is young.

The rocks are bleak, the trees are bare
Iron clouds go floatin' by
Snowflakes falling in my hair
Beneath the gray and stormy sky.

The evenin' sun is sinking low
The woods are dark, the town is too
They''ll drag you down, they run the show
Ain't no tellin' what they'll do.

Tell Ol' Bill when he comes home
Anything is worth a try
Tell him that I'm not alone
That the hour has come to do or die.

All the world I would defy
Let me make it plain as day
I look at you now and I sigh
How could it be any other way?

There's a feast of...intertextuality...in that song (Tell Ol' Bill)
...sorry. This is the tempest thread.
I don't suppose anyone wants to discuss the lyrics of Tell Ol' Bill in another thread (:hopeful)

I'll see what I can do. If someone else wants to know it, ask me.

I have listened to it in a "superficial" way. And the lyrics take time for me to assimilate them into my system. But I like it a lot cat

"Tin Angel" starts out as a cover of "Gypsy Laddie" or "Blackjack Davey" (depending on whether you're from the UK or Appalachia).

But then, when the husband catches up with his wife, Blackjack Davey kills him (this never happened before).

Then, the wife kills her lover to avenge her husband (this seems to be a borrowing from the Werner Fassbinder's film "The Marriage of Maria Braun").

Then, Fassbinder's Maria Braun turns into Shakespeare's Juliet, and stabs herself.

That's quite a collection of influences. Shocked

Yes, folkies tend to be trans-atlant-io.

But what is the true story? That is, the true story of the gallant knight Sir John Faa, lover of Lady Jane Hamilton, wife of John Kennedy, 6th Earl of Cassillis from 1621 to 1642?

And as Hozni points out on that link--Bob already did record Blackjack Gypsy. pirat
