Description
Cryin' in Me Guinness (w/Dick and Rebsie) by damiengh

This tune is about a bloke whose girlfriend (or wife) leaves him, and he's left in a quandary, drinking his
Guinness trying to figure out why she left him. He hasn't a clue.

Again, you MacJam folks are responsible for encouraging me to sing, but I tell you, this is truly out of character for me,
that is unless a past life is surfacing through these vocal pipes. This is also my first collab with the most talented Dick Langsford and Rebsie Fairholm.

Lyrics
Cryin' in Me Guinness

{chorus}

Ooh,
She left me cryin in me Guinness
Said It's over, it's done, and it's finished
Not lager, or ale, nor a Belgian Trippel
S'all for nowt, I'll drink stout 'til I'm out
S'all for nowt, I'll drink stout 'til I'm out

{end of chorus}

_________________________________________

Lookin back for a reason, was I blundering?
What is it, what could I have done?
To deserve such a fate, now I'm wondering,
Did I do, to make her wanna run?

chorus:

Was it out wit da boys on Saturdays?
Watchin telly the mornings till 3?
Reading papers in me raggedy recliner?
Dear gawd, oh crap, is it me?

chorus:

One cafe mesmerized by a waitress
Red hair, blue eyes, and petite
On me pants, spilt me tea, me girl thought so
Red faced, red handed and a cheat.

chorus:

And she knows I'm not much of a churchman
Don't pray and the point I don't see,
Get her back I'd be a prayin fool, man
On rice, till they bleed, on me knees.

Heh!
If I weren't at work, this might have me giggling in my Guinness. Okay, I can't lie. I'm a wimp. It would really be a Miller Lite, but, still, I'd be loving the hell outta this! This just has a pub sing-a-long written all over it. Your vocals are perfect! And you can't go wrong with backing from Rebsie and Dick.

Enjoyed it. This put a smile on my face.

Thanks much.
Glad you took the time to stop by and have a listen.

This is probably a one shot or should I say, one mug deal, to get this out of my system.
Got an idea and I just went with it to see where it would take me.

Of course, I had to have two of our leading Guinness drinkers do the chorus, in order to lend some authenticity to it all, even if it is in my own mind.

Thanks again for the kind words.

Yup, the old Coffee houses were very special. My first experiences with live music were in Coffee houses. Out this way, there was the ChessMate in Detroit and the Raven Gallery. Also at Wayne State Univ., the Newman Club.
We are talking early 60's here.

The sense of community spirit and of course our common bond against the Vietnam War.

Totally authentic.
I assure you, I have British folk LP's in which the real live Brits don't do so convincing a job of sounding like Brits holding forth in a pub...

Might almost be most of 'em, in fact...

I love the mandolin against the accordion sound. Are these your lyrics? If so, good job...

Seriously, man, go buy Richard Thompson's 'Henry The Human Fly' and then the first Young Tradition album... You're right on the money...

Next you'll be taking up darts...

Hopefully those ne'er-do-well backing singers of yours were wearing tweed and/or corduroy and sloshing while quaffing. Sloshing is key.

What a trip, damien... thanks for making sure I caught this...

Ed
damiengh said 3482 days ago (November 13th, 2007)
a big thank you
Ed,
I'll take your advice on the Richard Thompson. Saw him about 6 or 7 years ago at our local Folk Festival which occurs around January, a fund raiser for our big folk house venue, the Ark. ( http://www.theark.org )

Man, I sure wish Rebsie and Dick could get an agent out this way in the states, I'm sure they would garner a large following over time. They just need to get on the circuit.

They were most kind in helping me out with my tune and even contributed a change in the last line of the chorus.
Originally, I had "I will pout, drinking stout, till I'm out." I liked Dick's change and we went with it.

Went out on Sunday to our local Irish pub for a few Guinness and watched some traditional Irish music jam for the very first time.

Thanks again for stopping by to give a listen and for the musical listening suggestions.

Thanks Bob, you never know what is going to trigger a tune. Something inside of me was egging me on to do this. So, with all the encouragement from the last tune with singing, I decided to try it again.

Glad you liked this tale involving the stout.

Hey
What nice compliment.

Hey, as long as people aren't throwing grapefruit, tomatoes, etc. at me, I'll keep taking stabs at singing occasionally. When I hear this, I still shake my head thinking: "is this really me doing this?". Playing sax and flute is one thing, but hearing your voice played back at you, is really, really strange. I'm still getting used to this.

Anyway, thanks for coming by for a listen and I'm really flattered that you wanted to download this one.

a song containing Guinness would have to have Rebsie on it! Has a great drunken feel - Excellent vocals from you all. Sorry I couldn't reply to your note - my computer at home is rather fragile (I think it's on death's door) so I don't dare try Firefox and the mail has stopped working on my work machine as well!

Great song - Thanks

Great Fun
Nice job, Damien... with convincing musical ambiance from the Guinness Gaggle from across the pond. Your voice sounds authentic for this tune and the lyric is wry and ironic.

One suggestion for the arrangement, to add a little variance and punctuation to this ditty... at the end of the last two or three verses, consider musical stops, leaving your vocal to carry the last line... eg...

Red faced... red handed... and a cheat.

Then strike up the *band* for the chorus again. ;)

A big thanks for coming by to listen and the constructive critique.

Since the collab was sort of new to me, I was rather anxious just to get it out there.

I really like your idea of letting the voice hang out there to make the point on those lines.

Got to make a few more pub visits to get the hang of this genre.

Thanks again for listening.

Be jesus ..
. the story of my life .. without the cryin' .. I
haven't a clue if my girlfriend or wife left either ;o)

I too could hear Shane MacGowan spitting this one out
contemptuously.

Would love to hear this 'live' down the pub .. with
the punters all singing the chorus (not to say that
Rebsie and Dick didn't do an excellent job, which
they did).

Lyrics and accent was generally really good and convincing - I got a fair mix of English-isms though (perhaps intentional) with the 'dear gawd' and 'T' but
the 'on me pants' gave the American away ;o).

Music, mix and instrumentation was a joy. Kudos.

Glad you liked it. It was fun doing, especially with Dick and Rebsie.

Finally got here Damien - glad I did too. There's nothing quite like a pint of Guinness in a cosy pub - crying in it would just water it down though, a terrible waste of the head.
This has a very old feel - I'd maybe like to hear the vox a bit better, but the whole vibe of a night at the pub works really well. ALL of the voices sound good, and the instruments work a treat.

Nothing like MJ
I love these MJ collaborations. So cool. This is one of the best uses of group collabs. A really nice track.

Very tasteful use of loops. That mandolin sounds so human/real. (The use of loops explains why there isn't a final chord, like I expected, resolving the groove. The end is kind of abrupt.) A real banjo would definitely have added to the track. Ever hear the banjo on Neil Young's Old Man? One of my favorite uses. Consider asking someone here to dub one in. The backing singers are suitably loose and bent to give the track a unique authenticity. I liked your use of different octaves on the accordion. Sparse and clean.

This track simply makes me feel good. Thanks for sharing this. Smiles all around.

Tobin,
I only used the mandolin and shaker loops on this one, and I have to admit, I kind of rushed this out there and really didn't give a proper ending. ( perhaps a fade out would have been better. )

Neil Youngs banjo sound really would have added to it for sure.

Glad you made you feel good and gave you a smile.

Thanks for listening.

'Nowt' ?
Forgive me, this is my first comment on this website, but look me up and you'll see I'm from Dublin, and we don't say 'nowt'. It's either 'nothing' or 'nutten' or 'feck all'.

On the other hand, if you want an 'out' rhyme, then we do have the colloquialism 'It's your shout',

meaning 'It's your round / your turn to pay / your turn to shout for the barman'.

I totally agree with the previous posts that this song deserves to be a pub sing-a-long, and I love Rebsie, but 'nowt' is alien to my little Irish ears.

damiengh said 3462 days ago (December 3rd, 2007)
Hey
Thanks for coming by for a listen. I was just going for something that would be sung in a Pub, not necessarily English or Irish, but to have the general feel of the area. Heck, I'm a dead give away with the phony accent.

Originally I had the line:
" I will pout, drinking stout, till I'm out"

I corresponded with Dick from England, who wanted a better word than pout, (which I understand does fly over there too well), to rhyme with stout.

So he said he consulted with someone he worked with who was raised in Sutton Coldfield and came up with Nowt, a northern British word as opposed to southern's naught. So I went with his suggestion, after all, it's a collaboration, and needed the(me) chorus.

Mark it off to creative license. Heck, even used a little fake french pronunciation with "Belgian Trippel"

Again, thanks for coming by . Not trying to insult the Irish, for I've got that in me too.

Rebsie said 3460 days ago (December 5th, 2007)

Thanks Muchtoodifficult for the nice comment.

Regarding the "nowt" in the lyrics ... we originally thought it was going to be an English pub song and were trying to make it sound English. Then it turned into an Irish song, and some of the cultural references got mixed up.

Still, we're most likely to say "feck all" in England too these days, so I guess it doesn't matter much. :)

I just love this! It has the cleverest turns of phrases I've heard in a while, and the gentle cheerful swing of the music makes me want to buy the poor bloke another Guinness and join in. Probably just another lorry driver like myself, ah, I've been there, I've been there.

An absolute treat!

Thanks Rik. The Guinness sure does help numb the mind from being numb, trying to figure out what the hell one has done.

Very cool
I was born and raised in Dublin. Apart from early flirtations with Abba, my music of choice as a youngster was more along the lines of AC/DC and Black Sabbath than the folk traditions of my native soil. Irish music to me meant Thin Lizzy and the Boomtown Rats! But I was still steeped in it, everywhere I went. And my big association with this kind of music is saturday night and Sunday lunchtime in the pub. Saturday night speaks for itself, I think, but Sunday is stranger. At that time (I think it's changed now) on Sundays, bars only opened from 12:30 or so to about 2 p.m. when they closed for the aptly titled "Holy hour" when everybody went home for their Sunday dinner (except for those who were very good friends with the pub-owner and got "locked in"). I walked into many a pub on a Sunday to hear music just like this. You've caught the spirit perfectly - from the music to the lyrics. Nice work to all of ye. Peace.

Thanks for coming by for a listen and for your wonderful comment.

We have a few Irish pubs out this way, but I have never experienced the so called pub song in person. This was kind of based on the stereotypes of scenes I've seen in movies, but brought to life and lent some authenticity with the help of Dick and Rebsie.

I feel particularly pleased that I brought Dubliner a moment of his tradition.

Thanks again.

Hey, thanks for the nice words. I consulted much with Dick and Rebsie before letting this fantasy rip.

With all of the nice words people have sent, I may have another instrument, voice, which I had never considered or felt comfortable using before. May explore further.

Thanks again for taking the time to give a listen and for your appreciation on this tune.

A big thanks
To the big voice of Alannah. What a pleasant suprise that you came by to give a listen.

This was brand new venture for me and really outside of my normal genre. Maybe I should leave this door open for other projects.

Thanks for your comment. Have a Guinness or two and send me the bill.

Great Grogg
What a great song. Your page was the first page I've visited on MJ. I listened to the first two tracks and loved them both. I didn't realize they were both you. They're extremely different. Man there's some serious talent in here.

Thanks
Hey, thanks for the listen. This was only the second song I ever sang on, with the first being Ba-Doop (a latin jazz thing).

I had a great time doing this one with Dick(DWL) & Rebsie. Was going after a bar sing-along type tune that you'd find in a pub somewhere and Dick and Rebsie worked their magic.

If you get a chance, listen to the xmas group collab I was able to be a part of, called Same Herd. A clickable link on my page somewhere.

Thanks again.

I seem to like
all songs about beer but these days I don't even drink beer much... Wonder if that is trying to tell me something!

Love these pub feel songs!

Aw-thentic!
Great fun... terrible that I've missed this for so long... Rebsie & Dick do a brilliant job on the chorus, sounds impromptu and lively, and the music and lyrics are excellent, sounds like it was authentically scraped off some British pub floor from years past. Very good singing Damien (I'll try not to encourage you too much, but you do have a very nice voice.) Great work on the arrangement and mix, I like it! Chorus is ever-so-slightly muffled, but in a way, that makes it sound like there are dozens of Rebsies and Dicks singing in the bar, which would be quite dangerous I think.
ttfn,
Drakonis

It's the fun joint...
Well I'd have no problem encouraging you to sing to us again. It's nice to hear the voice behind the funny man in the forums. And it sounds as if you were having fun on this too. It also sounds like you've done this since the beginning of your existence. I really mean that. It's not the polished to the point of sounding digital or machined to "unreal" sounding. it's one that sports the essence of, "who is Damien", and that makes it true and appealing beyond anything else and nobody can argue that one.

Very nice composition, Mr. Hyde. You wrote the lyrics to this?... Ok, I see that you did. Poetically, clever. There..., you heard it first.

Now you've got me trying to understand what an Axiom Keyboard does. You've spankn' a banjo, bass and mandolin sound that has the true timber and the softness in cadence of the playing of the actual instrument. Impressive. I should look into that, but please feel free to share as much as you'd like about it.

Glad I stopped by. There was lots to take home with me. Thanks for the music, sir. Definitely a good one.

Dion

A lot
of fun here! The lyrics are just as fun as the music. I think this coulda done without the shaker. Perhaps because its rhythm sounds too perfect for someone crying in his guinness to be producing. Really nice melody and all around a great tune. THanks!

Nice!
Love the sort of Irish folk feel to this. That accordion is awesome! Best line of the song:

Don't pray and the point I don't see,
Get her back I'd be a prayin fool, man

Very nice! Thanks for the link. ;)
