Song: Wont You Come And Sing For Tab





Here's another sweet and poignant song by the best songwriter the
state of
West Virginia ever produced (IMNSHO). It has been recorded by Jody
Stecher
and
Kate Brislin on their album "Our Town" (Rounder CD0304) and by Ginny
Hawker
and Tracy Schwarz on their album "Deep Hollows and High Ridges"
(Marimac
CD9063).

WON'T YOU COME AND SING FOR ME by Hazel Dickens

    E   D A
I feel the shadows now upon me
D   A E
And fair angels beckon to me.
 D A
Before I go today, my brother,
E    D     A
Won't you come and sing for me?

Chorus:
D A
Sing the hymn we sang together
 E D A
In that plain little church where the benches are worn.
    D    A
How dear to my heart, how precious the moment
 E     D    A
We stood shaking our hands and singing our song.

My burden is heavy, my way has grown weary.
I have traveled a road that is long.
And it would cheer my heart, my brother
If you would come and sing one song.

Chorus-----

In my home beyond the dark river
Your dear faces no more I will see.
And when we meet, well there's no sad parting.
Won't you come and sing for me.

Chorus-----


Jody plays some positively amazing flatpicked guitar breaks on his
and
Kate's
recording that I won't even attempt to describe. I play it with a
less
ambitious Maybelle Carter-like approach. Learn this one and then teach
it
to
all your friends: that chorus absolutely screams for a throng of
harmonizers! 
 Please, support Hazel Dickens.
