THE GOOD SONGS

Medley of Brother John Songs and Folk Songs

arranged by Brother John

 

Let me hear that music one more time…

I remember the good times,

oh, so long ago,

Us kids and our folks as we traveled along, down the road we’d go.

I remember the times we’d be fussin’ and fightin’,

Mama turned off the radio,

And she’d start singing a good ole’ song each of us would know…

 

CHORUS

What became of the good songs, those happy songs, the fun songs

Those good old songs we’d sing time after time?

Can’t believe they’re gone away, died the way some people say.

Let me hear that music one more time.

 

I can still hear Mama and Papa singing their melody

While my sisters and my brother and me would join in the harmony.

Tell Me Why, Down in the Valley, When Papa Put the Paper on the Wall,

Mr. Moon, Moon, Spoonin’ in June… We could sing them all!

 

Down in the valley, the valley so low, hang your head over,

hear the wind blow.

Tell me why the stars do shine. 

Tell me why the ivy twine. 

Tell be why the sky’s so blue,

and I will tell you why I love you.

 

The poor old slave has gone to rest, we know that he is free.

His bones they lie, disturb them not, way down in Tennessee.

 

 I wanna be a friend of yours,

Mmm and a little bit more…

I wanna be a pal of yours,

Mmm and a little bit more…

I wanna be a bumble bee buzzin’ around your door…

I wanna mean a lot to you,

Mmm and a little bit,

Mmm and a little bit,

Mmm and a whole lot more.

 

CHORUS

What became of the good songs, those happy songs, the fun songs

Those good old songs we’d sing time after time?

Can’t believe they’re gone away,

died the way some people say.

Let me hear that music one more time.

 

Papa and my little brother

are singin’ in the heavenly choir,

And Mama shares her memories with our kids hour after hour.

We still keep on singin’ our songs whenever we’re travelin’ along.

So one more time, with tears in my eyes, I want to hear those songs!

 

CHORUS

What became of the good songs,

Those happy songs, the fun songs

Those good old songs we’d sing time after time?

Can’t believe they’re gone away,

Died the way some people say.

Let me hear that music one more time.

 

Repeat chorus.

 

Let me hear that music one more time. 

Let me hear that music one more time.
