Peggy Quotes

You might say Peggy is an artist who needs no introduction. Yet, here she revisits many traditional songs from her vast repertoire with finer voice and deeper appreciation than any of her previous recordings. She can make a traditional song sound timeless, yet as current as if written yesterday. She also includes one moving, bittersweet original song about growing old. This is the recording you want to play for a younger singer and say: "This is the way traditional music remains alive." - Rich Warren, WFMT

Peggy Quotes 2

My husband, Marky, teaches maths to  a group of very intelligent Further A Level students (they are about 17 - 18 yrs old and those super-intelligent whizz-kid types).  Yesterday they were getting a bit overloaded and fraught with the 'hard sums' so he played them the One Plus One video as a bit of a breather! They loved it!  Marky said all the frowns disappeared and they were all smiling and ready to go at the complex numbers again!

I Been a BAD BAD GIRL

from the singing of Ozella Jones. State Penitentiary, Raiford, Florida 1936

 

I been a bad, bad girl

Wouldn’t treat nobody right.

I been a bad, bad girl

Wouldn’t treat nobody right.

They wanna give me thirty-five year

Someone wanted to take my life.

 

CHORUS:    Now’m so sorry, even the day I was born

        Now’m so sorry, even the day I was born.

        I wanna say to all you bad fellas

        That you are in the wrong.

 

Judge, please don’t kill me,

I won’t be bad no more

Judge, please don’t kill me

I won’t be bad no more.

I’ll listen to everybody,

Something I never done before.  (chorus)

 

I’m sittin’ here in prison

With my black cap on

I’m sittin’ here in prison

With my black cap on.

Boys, remember me

Even when I am dead and gone. (chorus)
