Name of Son
7.06.09 | chickensoup

Posted on 07/06/2009 4:23:27 PM PDT by Chickensoup

I was in a resturaunt today and heard a song from either the sxties or seventies. the gist of the song was that as long as we are together we may not have much money... reminded me of different younger times. Any one have an idea what the name of the song could be.

I remembered the words as I heard them but cant put it together now that I am not distracted.

I Got you Babe.

Just joking, well, sort of. I Got you Babe fits the description but it’s probably Danny’s Song.

Side By Side
Well we ain’t got a barrel of money...
We may look ragged and funny...
But we’re travelin’ on...
Singing our song...
Side by side.

Through all kinds of weather...
What if the sky should fall?
As long as we’re together,
It doesn’t matter at all.
So we ain’t got a barrel of money...
We may look ragged and funny...
But we’re travelin’ on...
Singing our song...
Side by side.

Through all kinds of weather...
Drought, flood, rain and snow,
We will be together...
So it just don’t matter at all...

Oh we ain’t got a barrel of money...
We may look ragged and funny...
But we’re travelin’ on...
Singing our song...
Side by side.

Don’t know what’s comin’ tomorrow...
maybe it’s trouble and sorrow...
but we’ll travel the road...
sharin’ our load...
side by side.

Oh we ain’t got a barrel of money...
We may look ragged and funny...
But we’re travelin’ on...
Singing our song...
Side by side.

When they’ve all had their quarrels and parted...
we’ll be the same as we started...
just travlin’ along singin’ a song...
side by side.

OK, Thanks. I can hear just about the whole thing in my head, lyrics and all, but I didn't even recognize "Danny's Song" when I read it on the thread.

Brains are weird. At least mine is.

I might try that...

The last song that got stuck in my head was Coldplay's Viva la Vida, which I like, but wouldn't go away for days. "Hear Jerusalem's Bells a Ringing..." Over and over.

Don'tcha hate that?

iPhone and an app called Shazam would have helped instantly.

It sucks for identifying symphonic music though.

It tagged a Bach piece as being by Hanson.

LOL, that you had "Son" in your title (instead of "song') is what made me think you must be talking about the song, "Danny's Song" because I believe he wrote it about his brother who was about to have a son. So, I thought you were asking about the name of the son in the song. Yowzer.

That's not even close. Maybe only pop music is reducible to that kind of machine-recognizable pattern.

Yes, I think Shazam concentrated on mostly pop music fingerprinting. It works so-so on jazz and does ok on Country music— which these days is pop music with a fiddle and steel.

Howard Hanson, a choral and orchestral composer, I would think.

Now I am listening to Jerimiah was a Bullfrog. I moved into my very first solo appartment with that song. Two cars filled with my paltry accumulation. I was sitting on the mattress on the roof if I recall correctly.

OK, that makes sense.

I just posted that I thought you were talking about Howard Hanson, you know, comparing relatively “classical” composers. Guess I should have asked!

When I married in front of the JP in 70, that was SO true. I was 16 and married a vet. No money but we both had the same plan for the future... to bug out of city and find peace.

I'm going to guess that it was "Your Song" by Elton John.

It's a little bit funny, this feeling inside
I'm not one of those, who can easily hide
I don't have much money, but boy if I did
I'd buy a big house where we both could live.

If I was a sculptor, but then again no,
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it's not much, but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one's for you.

And you can tell everybody, this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done,
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
That I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world.

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses, well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song,
It's for people like you that, keep it turned on.

So excuse me forgetting, but these things I do
You see I've forgotten, if they're green or they're blue
Anyway, the thing is, what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen

And you can tell everybody, this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done,
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
That I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world.

I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
That I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world.
