Here's Your Mule 
 
 
 
 
 
A farmer came to camp one day,
With milk and eggs to sell,
Upon a mule that oft would stray
To where no one could tell.
The farmer tired of his tramp,
For hours was made a fool,
By ev'ryone he met in camp
With, "Mister, here's your mule."

(Chorus)
Come on, come on, come on, old man,
And don't be made a fool,
By ev'ryone you meet in camp
With, "Mister, here's your mule."

His eggs and chickens all were gone,
Before the break of day;
The mule was heard of all along,
That's what the soldiers say;
And still he hunted all day long,
Alas! a witless tool,
Whilst every man would sing a song
Of, "Mister, here's your mule."
(Chorus)

The soldiers run in laughing mood,
On mischief were intent;
The lifted muley on their back,
Around from tent to tent;
Through this hole and that, they pushed
His head and made a rule,
To shout with hum'rous voices all,
"I say! Mister, here's your mule."
(Chorus)

Alas, one day the mule was missed!
Ah, who could tell his fate?
The farmer, like a man bereft,
Searched early and searched late,
And as he passed from camp to camp,
With stricken face-the fool,
Cried out to ev'ryone he met,
"Oh, Mister, where's my mule?"

Aura Lea   
 
 
   
 
le clip n'est pas adapté ; n'en tenez pas compte.  
La mélodie est la bonne, et c'est ce qui compte.  
 
Alors ? qu'est-ce qu'on dit pour les consignes en rimes ?   
 
 
When the blackbird in the spring, on the willow tree,  
Sat and rocked, I heard him sing, singing Aura Lea  
Aura Lea, Aura Lea, maid with golden hair,  
Sunshine came along with thee, and swallows in the air.  
 
In thy blush the rose was born, music when you spake,  
Through thine azure eye the morn, sparkling seemed to break.  
Aura Lea, Aura Lea, bird of crimson wing,  
Never song have sung to me, in that sweet spring.   
 
Aura Lea! The bird may flee, the willows golden hair  
Swing through winter fitfully, on the stormy air.  
Yet if thy blue eyes I see, gloom will soon depart,  
For to me, sweet Aura Lea is sunshine through the heart.   
 
When the mistletoe was green, midst the winter's snows,  
Sunshine in thy face was seen, kissing lips of rose.  
Aura Lea, Aura Lea, take my golden ring,  
Love and light return with thee, and swallows with the spring.

Tenting Tonight on the Old Campground 
 
 
 
 
 
We're tenting tonight on the old camp ground,
Give us a song to cheer
Our weary hearts, a song of home,
And friend we love so dear.

(Chorus)
Many are the hearts that are weary tonight,
Wishing for the war to cease;
Many are the hearts that are looking for the right
To see the dawn of peace.
Tenting tonight, tenting tonight,
Tenting on the old camp ground

We've been tenting tonight on the old camp ground,
Thinking of days gone by,
Of the loved ones at home that gave us the hand
And the tear that said "Goodbye!"
(Chorus)

We are tired of war on the old camp ground,
Many are dead and gone,
Of the brave and true who've left their homes,
Others been wounded long.
(Chorus)

We've been fighting today on the old camp ground,
Many are lying near;
Some are dead and some are dying,
Many are in tears.

Many are the heart who are weary tonight,
Wishing for the war to cease;
Many are the hearts that are looking for the right
To see the dawn of peace
Dying tonight, dying tonight,
Dying on the old camp ground.

The Girl I Left Behind Me 
 
 
 
 
 
I'm lonesome since I crossed the hill,
And o'er the moorland sedgy
Such heavy thoughts my heart do fill,
Since parting with my Betsey
I seek for one as fair and gay,
But find none to remind me
How sweet the hours I passed away,
With the girl I left behind me.

O ne'er shall I foget the night,
the stars were bright above me
And gently lent their silv'ry light
when first she vowed to love me
But now I'm bound to Brighton camp
kind heaven then pray guide me
And send me safely back again,
to the girl I left behind me

Her golden hair in ringlets fair,
her eyes like diamonds shining
Her slender waist, her heavenly face,
that leaves my heart still pining
Ye gods above oh hear my prayer
to my beauteous fair to find me
And send me safely back again,
to the girl I left behind me

The bee shall honey taste no more,
the dove become a ranger
The falling waters cease to roar,
ere I shall seek to change her
The vows we made to heav'n above
shall ever cheer and bind me
In constancy to her I love,
the girl I left behind me.

Une très belle chanson, interprêtée par John W. Myers (1864-1919) 
JUST BEFORE THE BATTLE, MOTHER 
merci à T.J 
 
 
 
 
 
Just before the battle, mother,
I am thinking most of you,
While upon the field we're watching
With the enemy in view.
Comrades brave are 'round me lying,
Filled with thoughts of home and God
For well they know that on the morrow,
Some will sleep beneath the sod.


 
CHORUS:
Farewell, mother, you may never
Press me to your heart again,
But, oh, you'll not forget me, mother,
If I'm numbered with the slain.

 
Oh, I long to see you, mother,
And the loving ones at home,
But I'll never leave our banner,
Till in honor I can come.
Tell the traitors all around you
That their cruel words we know,
In every battle kill our soldiers
By the help they give the foe. 
 
CHORUS:
Farewell, mother, you may never
Press me to your heart again,
But, oh, you'll not forget me, mother,
If I'm numbered with the slain.

 
Hark! I hear the bugles sounding,
'Tis the signal for the fight,
Now, may God protect us, mother,
As He ever does the right.
Hear the "Battle-Cry of Freedom,"
How it swells upon the air,
Oh, yes, we'll rally 'round the standard,
Or we'll perish nobly there.

 
CHORUS:
Farewell, mother, you may never
Press me to your heart again,
But, oh, you'll not forget me, mother,
If I'm numbered with the slain.

Voilà quelques jolis airs de l'époque ! J'en ai un dont je n'ai que les paroles mais certains d'entre vous doivent en
connaître la musique :


PAT MURPHY OF THE IRISH BRIGADE (anonyme chanté par Ellen Stekert)


Says Pat to his mother : "It looks strange to me,
Brothers fighting in such a queer manner,
But I'll fight till I died if I ever got killed
For America's bright starry banner !"


Far away, in the East, was a dashing young blade
And the song he was singing so gayly :
't was honest Pat Murphy of the Irish Brigade
And the song of the splintered shillelagh...


The morning soon broke and poor Paddy awoke,
He found rebels to give satisfaction,
And the drummers were beating the Devil's sad tune,
They were calling the boys into action...


Far away, in the East, was a dashing young blade
And the song he was singing so gayly :
't was honest Pat Murphy of the Irish Brigade
And the song of the splintered shillelagh...


Sure, the day after battle, the dead lay in heaps
And Pat Murphy lay bleeding and glory
With a hole through his head by some enemy's ball
That ended his passion for glory...


No more, in the camp, will his letters be read
Or his song be heard singing so gayly,
But he died far away from the friends that he loved
And far from the land of shillelagh...


Si l'un de vous connaît la signification profonde de ce "splintered shillelagh" (gourdin fendu irlandais)... Merci !

"Tuco" (Eli Wallach) in the movie "The good, the bad and the ugly)...
