(WikiAnswers' editing format is difficult. Maybe someone can put the 4-line stanzas together for me and separate them. Very frustrating format routine. Anyway, here it is, str…atight from Fess Parker's rendition...). Ballad of John Colter . John Colter was a trapper,. And he knew the ways of game, But it wasn't for his trappin'. That he won immortal fame.. He traveled up the Yellowstone. And discovered Colter's Hell. But it isn't of his geysers. That my yarn is going to tell. (nosir!). Sing of the bravest mountain man Sing of the strong and the fleet Colter's courage was in his heart And his speed was in his feet.. John Colter knew the Blackfeet. Claimed the land off to the west,. But he said he'd do his trappin'. Where the trappin it was best.. He went and took his share of fur,. Then started back to Fort Manuel. (Fess Parker pronounced it ). But he didn't get no warnin'. Til he heard the Blackfeet yell.. Sing of the bravest mountain man Sing of the strong and the fleet Colter's courage was in his heart And his speed was in his feet.. The Blackfoot chief said to his men,. "This prisoner is so brave,. We take his clothes, then turn him loose,. With a chance his scalp to save.". They set him loose without his clothes,. Without his shoes and gun.. His courage was his only hope,. A race for his life to run.. Their fastest runners after him,. Their lances wavin' high,. The knowledge pounding in his heart. That he had to win or die.. Sing of the bravest mountain man Sing of the strong and the fleet Colter's courage was in his heart And his speed was in his feet.. Well John Colter ran and ran, and he ran and he ran. Like an antelope in fright.. Straight across the cactus thickets. Like an arrow in its flight.. Lungs a-burstin' with the effort,. Every muscle starts to scream.. Six miles of endless runnin'â¦. Suddenly there's a stream.. Dives deep into the water,. Breathin' through a hollow reed,. Leavin Blackfoot runners baffled. By the wonder of his speed.. John Waited til the red men left,. Then walked back to fort Manual,. Three hundred miles of barefoot trail.. Said he'd like to rest a spell.. Sing of the bravest mountain man Sing of the strong and the fleet Colter's courage was in his heart And his speed was in his feet..
Lyrical Ballads is a collection of poems by William Wordsworth who was a major English Romantic poet and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, first published in 1798. They changed the cou…rse of English literature and poetry, and become and still remain a landmark.
A ballad is a poem based on a story or an event
some but ballads are any song which tells a story (like a poem with music)
Some of the lyrics I couldn't get completely, so they would look like *this* if I asn't sure. I did the best I could. ------ O please daddy, won't you take us to Enanda,… all 6, 7, of us 8, 9 ,10? The Horsey boys will all be there, the goodman brothers, what a pair! And we can get our pictures on the social page again (chorus) Champagne, Caviar, Polo and Jaguars. Garden Parties, Debutantes, and french liquor Life's so boring for a gal who cannot join the social world, with first nights, dimple hage, and gown by dior. O please daddy, won't you fly us off to London? First class of course, in the seven o' seven. We're sure to make the Margret set and find some titled boyfriend yet To dance at the Savoy will be positively heaven! (chorus) O please daddy, let's go skiing at St. morrits, with Mary Lou and you-know-who, and the upper ten. If we don't break our arms and necks, we're sure to charm the other sex And when the seasons over, we'll go bowing back again! (chorus) O please daddy, if we can't go off to London, or spend a month in Paris when the weather's fine. If we can't indulge in winter sports, or cruise around some foreign ports, won;t you buy me just a teeny weeny diamond mine? (chorus) O please daddy.. FOOTSACK! Ag sous cookie, just cut out all that nagging Pass up now, hey? Just remember I'm your pa. I'm so fed up with your cheek, and that fancy way you speak That *blarie* School has finished you, has finished you *glar* Popcorn, chewing gum (chewing gum), peanuts and bubblegum (oh, bubblegum) Ice cream, candy floss(oh candy floss) and Eskimo pie Ag daddy how we miss Snicker Bars(Oh *jeez*) and licorice, pepsi cola, ginger beer and canda dry.
Ballads tell a story (narrative) which may have elements of heroism, extraordinary feats, humour, suffering or love lost. These ballads may be in musical style, as in popular… folk songs of a period, or in poetry. A typical example of ballad in poetic form is AB 'Banjo' Paterson's The Man From Snowy River, which tells the story of a very ordinary bloke who manages a heroic act.
a ballad is a poem which includes a story, chorus, rhythm, shape and rhyme. The definition of story is "an account of a real or imaginary event"/the plot or succession of inci…dents of a novel, poem, drama. In a ballad you have to have a story this includes characters and what the ballad is about. A ballad usually tells you a love story, or a story connected to love. The story will often have a moral which will teach you a message (something that can help you or is needed to know in life). In all ballads a particular repetition pattern can be used. This can be as brief as a phase or as long as a verse. This section is called a chorus. In the ballad Frankie and Johnny, at the end of each verse lies a similar sentence (a chorus): "He was her man but he done her wrong"- although this is not always the case. The rhythm is the beat or pace of the poem but in this ballad it is the amount of syllables in every line. The shape of the ballad is not the physical shape of the poem, but it is the length, and how the words and sentences are distributed in the poem also many words are in the line. I hope I helped!
the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings."

Can anyone help me find the full lyrics to an old English bawdy ballad called Drop the Line Melody beginning Early one evening in summer last year a daring young man swam round Brighton Beach Pier?
Early one evening in summer last year, a daring young man swam round Brighton Beach Pier. Around it he swam and climb out on a rock, shacking his.... Fist at a policeman w…ho stood on the shore. The very same copper who copped him before. He could swim like a fish and could dive like a duck, and end up having a nice little...... Luncheon and coffee and a bottle of wine, at the very same cafe where I use to dine. Each evening at sunset he would roam the seafront, looking for seaweed to hang on her..... Country songs have been sung for many years.....
Here They Are: As I understand them to be from many times and listening, writing and correcting. Ronnee Blakeley's songs seem to ramble without sequential or rhyming lyrics bu…t all end up telling a story. Her pronunciation of words is not always clear as it seems she has too many to remember. Like saying the cat wears a hat and I put the cat outside ends up sounding like the cat wears a hat and i put the hhhhhcat outside. Beautiful song and I absolutely love Jenny Agutter. I wonder if she is as beautiful at 60 as she was when she made the film at around 26. She has to be as natural beauty never leaves. The Lyrics 2012 by S Davis - Enjoy Lyrics China 9 Ronnee Blakeley No warm days And- No hot nights No more needs No love No light I hold my faith here to dream And-Only pain babe The thought is paid you see All these plans we made Are lonely nights No more smiles And- No more tears No one to hurt me - Nothing to move me - Only the hurt remains I need the touch of your skin You left me one night I need you by my side To help me through the night And lonely days Though we don't love this lucid dream We only find what's there We find this day has turned to night The love that isn't - Is fair No warm days And- No hot nights Only this Ghost you Know how I hold you - All my life- by you Relax my beating heart All the plans we made The colors fade you see All the plans we made Through lonely nights
The Ballad Of Hillsborough The Liverpool supporters Were given the smaller end; Crammed behind the goal mouth, The fans were tightly penned. Penned, penned in their thou…sands, Penned in under the sky No one there had reckoned, That ninety-six would die. The barriers all buckled, They couldn't take the strain. The cheers of jubilation, Turned into cries of pain. And when at last they noticed, The police unlocked a gate, But the exit was too narrow, And they'd opened it too late. The nation watched in horror, Stunned with disbelief As the shadows from the goal mouth Stained a football pitch with grief. An inquiry has been opened To find out who's to blame. But for those who lost their dear ones, Nothing will be the same. For nothing brings the dead back, Post mortems, flowers or prayers, It's like reaching the top of the stairwell And finding there's no stairs That drop down into darkness, Goes down and down and down And grief's black water well there, Inviting you to drown. Never to see your loved ones, Or hear them on the phone, It's hard to believe when it happened, That you'll never walk alone. But down at the Kop at Anfield, The goalmouth shows it's true, The scarves around the crossbar, Are knotted red and blue. Despite divided loyalties, Liverpool loves it's own, And every tribute there proclaims, You'll never walk alone. Not by the banks of the Mersey Nor down the terraced streets, Beneath the great cathedrals, A city's warm heart beats. And now in the cold spring sunset, The liver birds aflame, The phoenix rose from the ashes, A city can do the same.
All ballads are songs, but not all songs are ballads. Ballads are a type of song.
Preface to the Lyrical Ballads was created in 1800.
A poem or song which tells a story, usually in short verses. The origins of traditional ballads is often not known being passed verbally from one generation to another
