The Lion "Sucoyen"

Iona, you too young to fly sucoyen
Iona, you too young to fly sucoyen
Don;t you realize it's a capital sin
To be doing nothing else but only changing your skin
Yourself and Leihu, one sucoyen, one lagahou

Thie part of the story, friends, you it would amuse
But believe me, that night it had me confused
They had a black coffing in the center of the road
Around it were snakes, morocoy an' tadpole
The sucoyen spake as she sprinkle some san'
She said, "Dis cure destroy you" in a lagahou slang
Iona, Leihu, one sucoyen, one lagahou

Something they did that night, friends, it is no lie
I wish I had wings that night for to fly
One were dancing and singing, "Ti-bango le-i-ye"
The other are saying "Moko hali la-ive
Toto koka loye baso," to change their skin
To put it back they said, "Kin, kin danikin"
Iona, Leihu, one sucoyen, one lagahou

Standing and shivering, I stood gazing
While the sucoyen continued with her mad dancing
Dancing about in a mad career
And she used basodee youko iku yai
Friends, and she get up and she start to fly
Iona, Leihu, one sucoyen, one lagahou.


Sucoyen - a witch who removes her skin, places it under a stone
and turns into a ball of fitre flying through the night and
sucking blood from sleeping humans and animals

Lagahou is another name for the loup-garou (werewolf)

I can vouch for the awesomeness of this calypso-related book as well:
Avatar Fri. 8/8/14 9:19am Doug Schulkind:

Via Wikipedia...

Rara is a form of festival music that originated in Haïti, that is used for street processions, typically during Easter Week. The music centers on a set of cylindrical bamboo trumpets called vaksen (which may also be made of metal pipes), but also features drums, maracas, güiras or güiros (a percussion instrument), and metal bells, as well as sometimes also cylindrical metal trumpets which are made from recycled metal, often coffee cans. The vaksen-s perform repeating patterns in hocket and often strike their instruments rhythmically with a stick while blowing into them. In the modern day, standard trumpets and saxophones may also be used. The genre though predominantly Afro-based has some Taino Amerindian elements to it such as the use of güiros and maracas.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/8/14 9:21am ausmanx:

"Chlorodyne was the name for one of the most famous patent medicines sold in the British Isles. It was invented in the 19th century by a Dr. John Collis Browne, a doctor in the British Indian Army; its original purpose was in the treatment of cholera. As its principal ingredients were a mixture of laudanum (an alcoholic solution of opium), tincture of cannabis, and chloroform, it readily lived up to its claims of relieving pain."

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/8/14 9:53am northguineahills:

@Doug: John Tilbury did the same. I emailed him to tell him the people that supported W would have no clue who he was anyways, and said boycott just hurt the people who opposed W here in the States. (It was a more nuanced email, but that's the gist)

I've actually been worried about the bunnies here. For weeks and weeks, I would see a couple of bunnies hopping around a particular spot on my evening dog walks. A week or so ago, I saw a huuuuge hawk circling quite low over the area. Since then, no bunnies.

Hawks gotta make a living.
Avatar Fri. 8/8/14 10:57am Doug Schulkind:

That made me hungry, βrian.

This is what happens when bunnies dream of flight.

Still listening - just not in commenting range. Another fine show, Doug, lest I not have the chance later...

This is among my very favorite Tom T songs.

Keep lurking, davex. I got yer back!

@Uncle Michael
So so many to chose from. I ♥ Tom T.

' Real, The Tom T Hall Project ' a gem of a tribute album. And this is ALWAYS coming on the car player

Re: Wynn Stewart. He made a lot of records but the Challenge sides are my favorites -- "Playboy," "Above and Beyond," suicide ballad "One Way to Go," etc. Challenge was owned by Gene Autry; the Wynn masters were reissued previously by Bear Family on a 2-LP set.
Avatar Fri. 8/8/14 11:05am Doug Schulkind:

Absolutely agree, Andy S. His duets w/Jan Howard are terrific.
Avatar Fri. 8/8/14 11:07am glenn:

Thanks evan - the message may now be destroyed (although my source has her own fallibilities, but that relationship was long ago… so my liabilities are less than yours)

Proofing a college-level Amer History text. Book devotes more than the usual amount of space of such books in its WWII chapter to the anti-Mexican violence usu known as the Zoot Suit Riots. Kudos to this book.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/8/14 11:16am listener james from westwood:

(usu amount of space in such books, at least during my college years = none)
  Fri. 8/8/14 11:16am Paul Sherratt:

glenn, some years back to make sure that Ron Sexsmith had no way out of performing ' Ships Go Out ' at a tiny venue near us, I printed the lyrics out and handed them to him. I wonder if Iris Dement contribution is Doug's favourite ?
Avatar Fri. 8/8/14 11:16am Doug Schulkind:

Message deleted, Evan. And by that, I mean message, what message?!
Avatar Fri. 8/8/14 11:17am Evan in NC:

I have no idea what any of you are talking about. Loving the music, though.
Avatar Fri. 8/8/14 11:19am glenn:

don't be jealous, but i saw ron and iris perform "that's how i got to memphis" as a duet about ten years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 8/8/14 11:21am Brian in UK:

Still waiting to see Iris. Wrote to her, no reply.
Avatar Fri. 8/8/14 11:22am Doug Schulkind:

My wife is out of town. Left for NYC on the morning train. I first fell in love with Iris' music, seeing her in NYC when, yes, my wife was out of town. This was when she was touring with her new Warner Bros. record My Life. I am still in love.
  Fri. 8/8/14 11:26am Paul Sherratt:


Don't be jealous but Ron gave us a personal performance of 'Galbraith St ' at 7am in Barcelona airport after he'd missed his gig the evening before...

Actually that bit about singing is completely untrue. And yes I am fully of envy of the Iris/Ron duet!

GF & I are off to meet a friend in Sunnyside for Korean lunch. It's her last free weekday before starting a new job next week. Thanks for the awesomeness, as always, Doug!

Congrats on the GF job, Gary! Have some bibimbap for me!

Cannot imagine Ron as a bicycle courier though.
