Leadbelly - If it wasn't for Dicky



Leadbelly - If it wasn't for Dicky.
Apparently Lead Belly's influence for this song came from an Irish singer by the name of Sam Kennedy and a song he recorded about a farmer and his dead cow, this song is known as "Drimmin Dow". Lead Belly recorded his own take of this song in 1937 and named it "If it wasn't for Dicky".
Then in 1950, The Weavers adapted Lead Belly's version of this song, and turned it into a love song named "Kisses Sweeter then Wine". Seeger and Lee Hays who were part of the band molded their thoughts together for this version, and it ended up hitting #19 on the US hit parade in 1951.

My lyrics may not be exactly right. ...but most of you "second guessers"
are so far off that it is laughable. I know the traditional song, but
clearly leadbelly is singing his own version.... well you all are smarter
than me, more versed in traditional Insular Celtic folk music and know way
more about raising cows. ....Oh and, of course, way more in tune with the
Southern slang of that time period. Go ahead shit on my effort. But yours
is bullshit nonsense. Sorry to be blunt but....

@pauloverbey1 I think it's a touch faster and al (the other version I
mean)l, I've heard a good few other of his songs on here that are better
quality than the ones I have on the likes of Gwine dig hole, and the
library of congress albums, great stuff anyway,it's a pity I don't see the
tab for this or his version of house of the rising sun, any place on-line
if any of you guys know where I can get either or both of them from i'd
much appreciate it.

He says, "a sourful ditty I will tell you right now". not If it wasnt for
dicky. This is an old Irish song that he learned from a fellow folk artist.
musha sweeter than thou, musha is milk in Galic. Pete Seger talks about
this recording.

Thanks for your parody lyrics. I've been laughing so hard that my sides
hurt. Seriously, I remember many years ago hearing this for the first time
and saying, "Hey, that's 'Kisses Sweeter Than Wine' (which I knew from the
Jimmie Rodgers hit)"--Leadbelly adapted his version from an Irish
farmer-&-cow song, then the Weavers got the tune from Leadbelly and changed
it into a guy-&-gal song. Such is folk music.

I keep hearing Oohhh, oohh, witches wade at the dam... and at the end of

Автор TheShoreman1 (1 год)
I have listened to that part over and over again and cannot make out what
he is actually singing. The gist of it is that the cow was his main
concern. So... I sing it "had no worry in life 'til it came to his cow."

Oops typo, few should be fed. Each time it says Ooh Ooh.... that means Ooh
Ooh, which is sweeter than Dow? repeats. Still can't get two short
phrases,but any descent bluesman will just make up the bits they can't
understand or remember and then say that they wrote the song!

Автор justforever96 (3 года)
@trilobite3339 LOL, I think I can barely make out the lyrics to less than
half of his songs, but he is one of my absolute FAVORITE singers/musicians
EVER. I never knew he wrote the music to "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine", but
it's not surprising at all, considering the vast influence he had on music
in general. A true legend, but under-appreciated.

Автор michael patrick fox (4 года)
@izaks14 It's the other way around. Leadbelly learned this song in NYC in
the 1930's from Irish folksinger Sam Kennedy, but wrote new words to it.
