Songs from the 2003 screenplay
« on: May 23, 2017, 02:42:58 pm »
Has anyone ever read the 2003 version of the screenplay?  It contains many directions for songs in various scenes, that never came to pass.  But, they cleverly seem to relate or comment on the action at hand.  Remember "It's So Easy (to fall in love)"? and "D-I-V-O-R-C-E"?

I was very lucky to meet Larry and Diana in Tucson in 2015.  I had asked Larry about the interesting songs and he told me that despite the many musicians in his family (son, grandson), the music was Diana's contribution.  

I thought it would be fun to compile them here.  I'll state the context and post the lyrics as well.

BTW, here is a link to the 2003 screenplay:

#1  Patsy Cline's "Walkin' After Midnight"

Opening scene with Ennis in the cattle truck, approaching Signal. Is Ennis searchin?

~~~

I go out walkin' after midnight
Out in the moonlight
Just like we used to do, I'm always walkin'
After midnight, searchin' for you (wa-wa-walking, wa-wa-walking)

I walk for miles along the highway
Well, that's just my way
Of sayin' I love you, I'm always walkin'
After midnight, searchin' for you (wa-wa-walking, wa-wa-walking)

I stop to see a weepin' willow
Cryin' on his pillow
Maybe he's cryin' for me
And as the skies turn gloomy
Night winds whisper to me
I'm lonesome as I can be

I go out walkin' after midnight
Out in the moonlight
Just hopin' you may be somewhere a-walkin'
After midnight, searchin' for me (Wa-wa-walking, wa-wa-walking)

I stop to see a weepin' willow
Cryin' on his pillow
Maybe he's cryin' for me
And as the skies turn gloomy
Night winds whisper to me
I'm lonesome as I can be

I go out walkin' after midnight
Out in the moonlight
Just hopin' you may be somewhere a-walkin'
After midnight, searchin' for me (wa-wa-walking, wa-ooh-ah)

Songwriters: Alan Block / Alan W. Block / Don Hecht

#2 Tex Ritter's "Bad Brahma Bull"

Campsite 2, "Tent don't look right".  Jack is playing this on the out-of-tune harmonica.  

~~~

I was snappin out broncs at the Old Flyin' U
At fourty a month a plum good buckaroo
Well, the boss comes around and he says,
"Hey, my lad, well you look pretty good ridin' horses that's bad."
You see, I ain't got no more outlaws to break
But I'll buy you a ticket and I'll give you a stake.
At ridin' them bad ones, well, you ain't slow
And you might do some good at the big rodeo.

While they're puttin' the bull in the chute
I'm a strappin' my spurs to the heels of my boots
I looks that bull over and to my suprise
Well, he's a foot and a half in between his two eyes
On top of his shoulders he's got a big hump
I cinch's my riggin' just back of that lump
I latch in his middle and I lets out a scream
He comes out with a beller and the rest is a dream.

Well he jumps to the left and he lands towards the right
But I ain't no green horn - I'm still sittin' tight
The dust starts to foggin' right out of his skin
He's a wavin' them horns right under my chin
At sunnin' his belly he couldn't be beat
He's showin' the buzzards the soles of his feet
He's a dippin' so low that my boots filled with dirt
He's a makin' a whip of the tail of my shirt.

He's snappin' the buttons right off of my clothes
He's a buckin' and a bawlin' and a blowin' his nose
The crowd starts to cheerin' both me and that bull
Well, he needed no help, but I had my hands full
Then he went to fence rowin' and a weavin behind
My head went poppin' - I sorta went blind
He starts in high divin' - I lets out a groan
We went up together, but he come back alone.

Up high I turns over and below I can see
He's a pawin' up dirt just a waitin' for me
I can picture a grave and a big slab of wood
Sayin', "Here lies a twister who thought he was good."
I notice this somethin' don't seem can be true
But the brand on his hip was a big Flyin' U
When I landed he charged, but I got enough sense
So I ran that old bull to the hole in the fence.

I dives through that hole and I want you to know
I ain't goin' back to no big rodeo
At a straddlin' them brahmas you can bet I'm all through
I'm sore footin' it back to the old Flyin' U

#3 "Water-Walkin' Jesus", a Pentecostal hymn

Just where it should be.

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5frWic9ZiA[/youtube]
(Rodney starts singing at 3:15.)

When the oceans shall boil
They sky turns to fire
The waking recoil from the almighty's power
I know I shall meet you on that final day
Water-Walkin' Jesus, take me away.

By James McMurtry and Stephen Bruton

That's next!
#4 Hank Williams' "Kaw-Liga"

After the Chilean sheep debacle, Jack again on his harmonica is playing this.  Ennis' line "You'll run the sheep off again if you don't quiet down". Heart made of knotty pine, can't let it show.

~~~

Kaw-liga was a wooden Indian standing by the door.
He fell in love with an Indian maiden over in the antique store.
Kaw-liga just stood there and never let it show,
So she could never answer "yes" or "no."

Poor ol' Kaw-liga, he never got a kiss.
Poor ol' Kaw-liga, he don't know what he missed.
Is it any wonder that his face is red?
Kaw-liga, that poor ol' wooden head.

He always wore his Sunday feathers and held a tomahawk.
The maiden wore her beads and braids and hoped some day he'd talk.
Kaw-liga, too stubborn to ever show a sign,
Because his heart was made of knotty pine.

Kaw-liga was a lonely Indian, never went nowhere.
His heart was set on the Indian maid with the coal black hair.
Kaw-liga just stood there and never let it show,
So she could never answer "yes" or "no."

And then one day a wealthy customer bought the Indian maid,
And took her, oh, so far away, but ol' Kaw-liga stayed.
Kaw-liga just stands there as lonely as can be,
And wishes he was still an old pine tree.

#5 Roger Miller's "Dang Me"

Shortly after Ennis and Alma's wedding, Ennis "spinning donuts" with the truck.  This is on the radio.

~~~

Well, here I sit high, gettin' ideas
Ain't nothing but a fool would live like this
Out all night and runnin' wild
Woman sittin' home with a month-old child

Dang me, dang me
They oughta take a rope and hang me
High from the highest tree
Woman, would you weep for me?

Just sittin' around drinkin' with the rest of the guys
Six rounds bought, and I bought five
And I spent the groceries and half the rent
Like fourteen dollars and twenty-seven cents

Dang me, dang me
They oughta take a rope and hang me
High from the highest tree
Woman, would you weep for me?

Roses are red and violets are purple
Sugar is sweet and so is maple surple
Well I'm the seventh out of seven sons
My pappy's a pistol, I'm a son-of-a-gun

Well, dang me, dang me
They oughta take a rope and hang me
High from the highest tree
Woman, would you weep for me?

Written by Roger Miller

Not a song, but...

"Hud" is playing at the drive-in when Ennis and Alma are eating popcorn.

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3paLbaNpRwg[/youtube]

"Hud, the man with the barbed-wire soul".  "Mean and magnificent.  Alone and arrogant."

Inspired by Larry's "Horseman Pass By".

Patricia Neal won the Oscar for portraying Alma.

#6 "Faded Love" by Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys

When Jack returns to Signal looking for work, and for Ennis. This is blaring on his radio.

~~~

As I look at the letters that you wrote to me
It's you that I am thinkin' of
As I read the lines that, to me, were so dear
I remember our faded love

I miss you darlin', more and more every day
As heaven would miss the stars the above
With every heartbeat, I still think of you
And remember our faded love

As I think of the past and all the pleasures we had
As I watched the mating of the dove
It was in the springtime that you said goodbye
I remember our faded love

I miss you darlin', more and more every day
As heaven would miss the stars above
With every heartbeat, I still think of you
And remember our faded love

And remember our faded love

I'll skip the fireworks scene, with "Battle Hymn of the Republic".  No change there.

#7 Kitty Wells' "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels"

This is on the jukebox when Lureen lures Jack to the dance floor after her "matin' call" line.

~~~

As I sit here tonight, the jukebox playin'
The tune about the wild side of life
As I listen to the words you are sayin'
It brings memories when I was a trusting wife

It wasn't God who made honky tonk angels
As you said in the words of your song
Too many times married men
Think they're still single
That has caused many a good girl to go wrong

It's a shame that all the blame is on us women
It's not true that only you men feel the same
From the start
Most every heart that's ever broken
Was because there always was a man to blame

It wasn't God who made honky tonk angels
As you said in the words of your song
Too many times married men
Think they're still single
That has caused many a good girl to go wrong

Yup, just finished reading that screenplay yesterday morning...

Oh, i like this song "Kaw-Liga" very much  :). So, that's where the line for Ennis' "I'm nothing, i'm nowhere" comes from! (Guess also from short story's "pair of deuces going nowhere".) And also Jack's line to Ennis about tying knots all day! How nice :)

All these songs would have been matching the actual time period, but the final songs of the movie do have a more "modern" feel to them, so they would match the time period of watching the movie. Hmm...

#8 Patsy Cline's "Crazy"

This is playing on Jack's radio while he's happily driving up to see Ennis, post-divorce.

~~~

Crazy, I'm crazy for feeling so lonely
I'm crazy, crazy for feeling so blue
I knew you'd love me as long as you wanted
And then someday you'd leave me for somebody new

Worry, why do I let myself worry?
Wondering what in the world did I do?
Crazy for thinking that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for trying and crazy for crying

And I'm crazy for loving you
Crazy for thinking that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for trying and crazy for crying
And I'm crazy for loving you.

Willie Nelson

#9 Merle Haggard's "My Friends Are Gonna Be Strangers"

Jack cries to this as he leaves Ennis and heads to Mexico.

~~~

Oh, the love you promised would be mine forever
I would have bet my bottom dollar on

Well, it sure turned out to be a short forever
Just once I turned my back and you were gone
From now on all my friends are gonna be strangers
I'm all through ever trusting anyone

The only thing I can count on now is my fingers
I was a fool believing in you and now you are gone
It amazes me, not knowing any better

Than to think I had a love who would be true
Why, I should be taken out, tarred and feathered
To have let myself be taken in by you

From now on all my friends are gonna be strangers
I'm all through ever trusting anyone

The only thing I can count on now is my fingers
I was a fool believing in you and now you are gone

In a "mountain montage", Jack and Ennis ride through the mountains, "like Randolph Scott and Joel McRea in 'Ride the High Country' (1962) ".

#10 Eagles' "Already Gone"

In the Wolf Ears Bar, just before Ennis meets Cassie, this is playing on the jukebox.

~~~

Well, I heard some people talkin' just the other day
And they said you were gonna put me on a shelf
But let me tell you I got some news for you
And you'll soon find out it's true

And then you'll have to eat your lunch all by yourself
'Cause I'm already gone
And I'm feelin' strong
I will sing this vict'ry song, woo, hoo, hoo, woo, hoo, hoo

The letter that you wrote me made me stop and wonder why
But I guess you felt like you had to set things right
Just remember this, my girl, when you look up in the sky
You can see the stars and still not see the light (that's right)

And I'm already gone
And I'm feelin' strong
I will sing this vict'ry song, woo, hoo, hoo, woo, hoo, hoo
Well I know it wasn't you who held me down

Heaven knows it wasn't you who set me free
So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains
And we never even know we have the key
But me, I'm already gone

And I'm feelin' strong
I will sing this vict'ry song
'Cause I'm already gone
Yes, I'm already gone

And I'm feelin' strong
I will sing this vict'ry song
'Cause I'm already gone
Yes, I'm already gone

Already gone
All right, nighty-night

#11 Redbone's "Come and Get Your Love"

Of course, Cassie's song.  Rather than "It's So Easy".

~~~

Hey (hey) What's the matter with your head? yeah
Hey (hey) What's the matter with your mind and your sign?
And-a ooh-ohh
Hey (hey) Nothin's a matter with your head, baby, find it
Come on and find it
Hell, with it, baby, 'cause you're fine and you're mine
And you look so divine

Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love

Hey (hey) What's the matter with your feel right?
Don't you feel right, baby?
Hey, oh, yeah, get it from the main line, alright
I said-a find it, find it, darling, love it
If you like it, yeah-eh
Hey (hey) It's your business if you want some
Take some, get it together, baby

Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love

Come and get your love, come and get your love
Come and get your love, now
Come and get your love, come and get your love
Come and get your love, now
Come and get your love, come and get your love
Come and get your love, now
Come and get your love, come and get your love
Come and get your love, now

Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love

Hey (hey) What's the matter with your feel right?
Don't you feel right, baby?
Hey, oh, yeah, get it from the main vine, alright

La,la,la,la,la,la, (come and get your love)
La,la,la,la,la,la, (come and get your love)
La,la,la,la,la,la, (come and get your love)
La,la,la,la,la,la, (come and get your love)

#12 Glen Campbell's "Southern Nights"

This is playing while Ennis has his apple pie (in a Denny's, not a Groundhog station LOL).

~~~

Southern nights have you ever felt a
Southern night free as a breeze
Not to mention the trees
Whistling tunes that you know and love so

Southern nights just as good even when
Closed your eyes, I apologize
To any one who can truly say
He has found a better way

Feel so good, feel so good, it's frightening
Wish I could stop this world from fighting
La da da da da da, la da da da da da
Da da da da da da da da da da da

Mysteries like this and many others
In the trees blow in the night
In the southern skies

Southern skies have you ever noticed
Southern skies it's precious beauty
Lies just beyond the eye
It goes running through your soul like the stories of old

Old man he and his dog they walk the old land
Every flower touched his cold hand
As he slowly walked by
Weeping willows would cry for joy

Writer(s): Allen Toussaint

#13 Johnny Paycheck's "Take This Job and Shove It"

On the radio while Ennis is driving to Lightning Flat.

~~~

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
My woman done left
And took all the reasons
I was working for

You better not try to stand in my way
As I'm walking out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more

I've been working in this factory
For nigh on fifteen years
All this time I watched my woman
Drowning in a pool of tears

And I've seen a lot of good folks die
That had a lot of bills to pay
I'd give the shirt right off my back
If I had the guts to say

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
My woman done left
And took all the reasons
I was working for

You better not try to stand in my way
As I'm walking out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more

Well that foreman he's a riggity dog
The line boss he's a fool
Got a brand new flattop hair cut
Lord he thinks he's cool

One of these days I'm gonna blow my top
And that sucker he's gonna pay
Lord I can't wait to see their faces
When I get the nerve to say

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
My woman done left
And took all the reasons
I was working for

You better not try to stand in my way
As I'm walking out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
Take this job and shove it

Last one: #14 George Strait's "All My Exes Live in Texas"

Playing on Alma Jr.'s radio in Troy's Chevy Camaro.

~~~

All my ex's live in Texas
And Texas is the place I'd really love to be
But all my ex's live in Texas
And that's why I hang my hat in Tennessee.

Rosanna's down in Texarkana
Wanted me to push her broom
Sweet Eileen's in Abilene
She forgot I hung the moon
And Allison's in Galveston
Somehow lost her sanity
And Dimple's who now lives in Temple's
Got the law looking for me.
All my ex's live in Texas
And Texas is the place I'd really love to be
But all my ex's live in Texas
And that's why I hang my hat in Tennessee.
--- Instrumental ---
I remember that old Frio River
Where I learned to swim
But it brings to mind another time
Where I wore my welcome thin
By transcendental meditation
I go there each night
But I always come back to myself
Long before daylight.

All my ex's live in Texas
And Texas is the place I'd really love to be
But all my ex's live in Texas
Therefore I reside in Tennessee.

Some folks think I'm hidin'
It's been rumored that I died
But I'm alive and well in Tennessee...

That was fun!  I think Diana did an excellent job. 

I guess getting the rights would be prohibitively expensive.

Plus, this way, Gustavo got to write all his excellent songs!

#11 Redbone's "Come and Get Your Love"

Of course, Cassie's song.  Rather than "It's So Easy".

~~~

Hey (hey) What's the matter with your head? yeah
Hey (hey) What's the matter with your mind and your sign?
And-a ooh-ohh
Hey (hey) Nothin's a matter with your head, baby, find it
Come on and find it
Hell, with it, baby, 'cause you're fine and you're mine
And you look so divine

Come and get your love
...

Good series. I'm learning lots.
