This irritating song was a part of many pentecostal christian's childhood, but I noticed the iPhones/Bones synergy and the 'connectedness' theme of the Internet of Things (IoT) on the drive into work this morning, thus a filk is born.

Some other songs about IoT, one an advertisement:

another like mine, but much darker:

The original tune is by James Weldon Johnson, who died in 1938.

The original song is about the much overlooked zombie army episode in the Biblical story of Ezekiel.

Here is a live performance by Queen:

This song is much sadder when you pick up the theme of the movie and the message it had for Mary Austin.

If you have been following the story of this 'gibson copy' guitar, I have replaced the saddle and pins so that action and intonation are much better now.

Covering this song released by Colum in support of defending the environment in Ireland.

I like to interpret the chorus as old people 'the older wood' abandoning their destructive attitudes to the environment and turning 'green' again.

Damh the Bard's brilliant song came up on a Spotify Filk playlist today, so I'm doing a cover.

Thank to Damh for his very generous instructional video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBUgnvfEjQ4

And this excellent cover by Håkan from Sweden:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-OQIXYn0T8

I've used several photos and paintings of Pan/Cernunnos. Credits include Paul Bransom, Norman Mills Price, George Cruickshank, Wenceslas Hollar and Michael Hague.

Unfortunately the guitar doesn't quite hold the DADGAD tuning down the neck, which is disappointing because it resonates so beautifully. A new saddle might solve the problem.

I had the great privilege to hear Damh sing this live at the Singing Gallery in McLaren Vale back in 2013, what a magical night!

My four year old son asked me to read Red Riding Hood last night. I had forgotten how bizarre and disturbing this story is.

On reflection, I think this would have been a rape-warning morality story for young girls, too young to understand sex but old enough to understand how unpleasant being eaten by a wolf would be.

I know my re-interpretation of the story is dark, but they are called Grimm for a reason.

I have always been scared to do this song, given the rapid pace and tongue twisting lyrics.

I made a new tipper for my bodhran on the lathe today and wanted a song to try it out with.

I usually don't write songs on demand, but in response to the song I wrote last weekend about Yass Valley water, I was contacted by Gail, who has family in Menindee and asked if I would write about the million dead fish and the long-term harm that has been done by us to the Murray Darling river system over the past 100+ years.

All the photos are from ABC stories about the incident and the long term problems with the Darling river. Here are some of the stories:

Leonard released this song on his final album, You Want it Darker. He passed away just three weeks after this release at the age of 82.

Some have interpreted these lyrics as a treaty between ex-lovers. But for me, today, it is more universal. A treaty between all the warring ideologies splintering our society at present.

The alt-right, the alt-left, Trump-haters, Trump-supporters, conservatives and liberals, pessimists and optimists. Sometimes I just wish it would stop, that we could agree not to argue any more.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-01-29/recovered-grandchild-121-maximilianos-story/10732900

Banjo Paterson, the Australian bush poet and author, wrote many ballads and poems about life in Australia in the 1800-1900s.

Banjo spend some time in Yass and we have a park dedicated to his name.

This Australia Day, the country is torn, as it was back when Banjo was writing Waltzing Matilda. While on the surface the song is just a story about a sheep thief, the politics between the Squatters and Settlers and the itinerant shearers were far more complicated. More detail on the ballad here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waltzing_Matilda

It is of interest that Australia almost voted to have this as the national anthem back in 1977.

Today Australia is divided over holding our national day on 26 Jan, with its association with the arrival of a colonizing force, or moving it to another day which can be celebrated by Indigenous Australians as well.

We always get a good lamb ad on Australia Day, this year was not exception, but a little to close to home. Please take over Australia Jacinda Ardern!

Protests today:
https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-01-26/australia-day-protests-draw-thousands-calling-for-date-change/10752882

What is my view? If something as simple as changing a day will bring some comfort and a feeling of inclusion to a part of the society, why not do it? But our parliament is full of old white men who fear change, and rarely apologize.

I was inspired by listening to the fabulous Anne Brigg's version of this ballad to record some of my own verses.

Here is Anne with Bert Jansch:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FsLv1C3TbWE

Anne's 1971 self-titled album, that this song appears on is a folk masterpiece.

Mainly Norfolk suggests that this is a broadside ballad:
https://mainlynorfolk.info/anne.briggs/songs/blackwaterside.html

but the only one I can find has the same title, and roughly related story, but clearly different lyrics:
http://ballads.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/static/images/sheets/20000/16968.gif

This blog discusses the interesting connection with Led Zeppelin's 'Black Mountain Side'.
http://turnmeondeadman.com/black-mountain-side/

Sandy Denny recorded this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ccZOGwijGQ

This broadside rhymes 'blackwater side' with 'castle hyde' in some sort of 1800s travel advertisement:
http://ballads.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/static/images/sheets/05000/01211.gif

Very long mudcat thread on the song, seems most likely of Irish origin:
https://mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=20109

My updated lyrics:

One morning fair, as I chanced the air
Down by blackwater side
'Twas in gazing all around me
That an Irish lad I spied

All in the fore part Of the night
We rolled in sport and play
Then this young man arose
and he put on his clothes,
Saying fare thee well to-day.

That's not the promise you made to me
When you lay upon my breast;
You would have me believe with your lying tongue
That the sun rose in the west.

Go home, go home to your father's garden,
Go home and cry your fill;
And think of the sad misfortune
you brought on with my wanton will

(new verses)
I’ll not go home to my father’s garden,
And I’ll shed no tears for you,
For you have shown, a false hearted lover,
I bid to you adieu

For there's not a boy in this whole wide world
As pitiful as you,
For you have spurned, a pure heart,
That would have loved you true,

Apologies if you can hear the fan, but it is 40 degrees Celsius here..

As a fan of folk music, I've become use to the regular announcement of the passing of key figures in the community. However, when someone like Mike Taylor from Walk off the Earth passes at such a young age, leaving a family behind, it leaves me feeling numb.

I first saw Scott Helman in the WOTE Hanukkah video from December last year:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8vaxdvojW0

I don't understand how in the music industry there can be someone who writes and performs something rich and visceral with subtle artistry yet plays in the park for change, but we go to a pop idol concert spending $200 a ticket for empty platitudes, auto-tune and fireworks. I guess maybe the same reasons that fast food is popular.

Martin Pearson does an excellent version of this in his Unfinished Spelling Errors of Bolkien. You can buy the CD here:
http://pearsonmartin.wixsite.com/martin/booking
or catch Martin at the next Australian folk festival.

Lyrics:
If you’re scared and you know it build a wall,
Though it won’t keep out the Mexicans at all,
They’ll just come by planes and boats,
Or on anything that floats,
It’s pretty clear that you have dropped the ball.

5 billion could be much better spent,
On schools and healthcare or lower rent,
You could help to tackle crime,
And it wouldn’t cost a dime,
If you’d straighten out the truth you bent.

Throw a tantrum when you don’t get your way,
Ignore whatever the experts say,
If Pelosi tells you no,
Just stamp your feet and go,
Keep the government shut down another day.

If America would stop toppling regimes,
With drugs and weapons used in crazy schemes,
There would be no refugees,
No third world countries on their knees,
And people would be free to chase their dreams.

Welcome to 2019 everyone, my first upload for the year!

By far my most viewed video for 2018 was the Billy Joel / Lovecraft crossover:

In a shallow and crass attempt to gain more views and subscribers, here is my own mash up of H.P Lovecraft's poem The House:
https://allpoetry.com/poem/8556727-The-House-by-Howard-Phillips-Lovecraft

with the folk classic, 'House of the Rising Sun'.

The photo is by Andrew Kuchling (https://www.flickr.com/photos/akuchling/50447055) and the house isn't the subject of the poem, but was the subject of Lovecraft's short story 'The Shunned House'.
