Old Joe Clark by The Rosinators
The Rosinators on the Left Field Stage at the Glastonbury Festival, UK

"When American roots music deejays rave about bluegrass passion, Cajun verve
and country-gospel authenticity, you know that The Rosinators are the real deal.
From deep in the heart of Balham Alligator territory, the London-based trio have
added their own stamp to the American old time tradition so convincingly that most
of their radio airplay comes from US stations. Formed in 2001, they blazed out of
the traps with dynamic three-part vocal harmonies and fiery twin-fiddle attacks
driven by crackin' guitar picking."
[Acoustic Music Centre - Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Aug 2005]

Lyrics

(as sung by The Rosinators)

Cindy's Breakdown
Trad arr. by The Rosinators
(PDC Music PRS/MCPS)


Cindy in the summertime
Cindy in the fall
If I ain't got my Cindy
I got nothing at all
Get along home home Cindy
Get along home
Get along home home Cindy
I'm a gonna miss you now

I wished I was an apple
Hangin' on a tree
Everytime my Cindy come along
She could take a little bite of me
Get along home home Cindy
Get along home
Get along home home Cindy
I'm a gonna miss you now

I wished I was a sugar tree
Standing in the town
Everytime my Cindy come along
She'd shake some sugar down
Get along home home Cindy
Get along home
Get along home home Cindy
I'm a gonna miss you now

Cindy had one blue eye
Cindy had one brown
One eye in the country
The other in the town
Get along home home Cindy
Get along home
Get along home home Cindy
I'm a gonna miss you now

She told me that she loved me
She called me sugar plum
She threw her arms around me
I thought my time had come
Get along home home Cindy
Get along home
Get along home home Cindy
I'm a gonna miss you now

Get along home home Cindy
Get along home
Get along home home Cindy
I'm a gonna miss you now

Song History



From Wikipedia

Cindy (folk song)

Cindy is a rolicking American folk song and frolic tune. According to
John Lomax, the song originated in North Carolina. As with many
folk songs, each singer was free to add verses, and many did. Cindy
was a particular favorite for this, with many ribald verses added,
attesting to Cindy's amorous inclinations.
See Lyrics 

From The Fiddlers' Companion


CINDY [1]. AKA and see "Cindy in the Summertime," "Cindy in the
Meadows," "Get Along Home (Miss) Cindy", "Git Along Cindy,"
"J'etais au Bal", "Old Time Cinda", "Run Along Home, Cindy",
"Whoop 'Em Up Cindy"

Old-Time, Song and Breakdown. USA; Arkansas, North Carolina,
Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, Mississippi. D Major (most versions):
G Major (John Brown). Standard or ADAE. AB (Brody): AABB
(Phillips/1989 {the 'B' part is 'crooked' in Phillip's version}): AA'BB
(Phillips, 1994).

A widely known frolic tune, appearing in many folk music collections
and even old elementary school songbooks. The title appears in a list
of traditional Ozark Mountain fiddle tunes compiled by musicologist/
folklorist Vance Randolph, published in 1954, and was recorded for
the Library of Congress in 1939 by Mississippi fiddler John Brown.
A very popular Cajun version of the tune, probably borrowed from
the American song, is "J'etais au Bal" (I Went to the Dance Last Night).
Verses set to the tune are many, including several "floaters": see here
