"THE WAGONER'S LAD" lyrics

At the beginning only the first verse is heard which serves as a theme for the recording: women feeling out of control of their own lives, living to please everyone else but themselves. This lyric song goes way back and is somehow related to "On Top of Old Smoky". The Wagoner's Lad Oh hard is the fortune of all womankind They're always controlled, they're always confined Confined by their parents until they are wives Then slaves to their husbands for the rest of their lives Oh I am a poor girl, my fortune is sad I've always been courted by the Wagoner's Lad He's courted me daily, by night and by day And now he is loaded and going away "Your parents don't like me because I am poor They say I'm not worthy of entering your door But I work for a living, my money's my own And if they don't like it, they can leave me alone"

Joan Baez - Mary Hamilton. JOAN BAEZ - MARY HAMILTON LYRICS. Emily Fox. Free Society. Yesterday I walked the streets free to be what I wanted to be, Today I find I'm suddenly not allowed to be me I see I'm not good enough any more.

Free Society

So won't you please tell me why what used to be fine is so wrong Or were you planning this backstabbing all along? #1 Let Go Of Your Heart - - The Chapel Sessions (Free Download) Let Go Of Your Heart. Seven years finally caught up on you You ask yourself what could you do?

Let Go Of Your Heart

You finally learned the meaning of too little too late Cause life gave up dealing a hand that you just can't play. You think of all the times that you didn't let her know You think of all the times that she didn't let go Now you wonder why she's left you out in the dark, she said, Never let go of your heart. Don't you think, she deserved good from you?

Ella Fitzgerald: biography

In her lifetime, she won 13 Grammy awards and sold over 40 million albums. Her voice was flexible, wide-ranging, accurate and ageless. She could sing sultry ballads, sweet jazz and imitate every instrument in an orchestra. She worked with all the jazz greats, from Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Nat King Cole, to Frank Sinatra, Dizzy Gillespie and Benny Goodman. (Or rather, some might say all the jazz greats had the pleasure of working with Ella.) She performed at top venues all over the world, and packed them to the hilt. Humble but happy beginnings Ella Jane Fitzgerald was born in Newport News, Va. on April 25, 1917. To support the family, Joe dug ditches and was a part-time chauffeur, while Tempie worked at a laundromat and did some catering.

Their apartment was in a mixed neighborhood, where Ella made friends easily. A rough patch Jazzing things up.
