Fare Thee Well/Dink's Song: Season Two Finale

It's our season finale and our EIGHTIETH Old Timey Tuesday! Today, we say Fare Thee Well, for the summer that is. This tune, also known as "Dink's Song" was first published in 1909 and found new life in the Folk Revival, and again recently in the film Inside Llewyn Davis. Special thanks to all of our Old Timey guests throughout the season: Landree Fleming, Tommy Bullington, Diego Colón, James Nedrud, Aaron C. Holland, Patrick Tierney, Dan Fager, Caitlin Rose, Robert Williams, David Cerda, and Stephanie Stockstill.

The She's Folks crew wants to thank you for joining us for another great season of Old Timey Tuesdays, shows, our new web series She's Cookin' and the release of our album http://www.shesfolks.com/music . We'll be back in September with all new Old Timey Tuesdays, She's Cookin's, and a few other surprises we have up our sleeve. But don't worry, we'll check back in throughout the summer. Make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/shesfolks , we'll be adding some YouTube exclusive content you won't want to miss.

Thank you so very much for being a part of She's Folks! Have a wonderful summer and we'll see you in the Fall!

If I had wings like Noah's dove
I'd fly the river to the one I love
Fare Thee Well my honey Fare Thee Well

I had a man who was long and tall
Moved his body like a cannonball
Fare Thee Well, my honey Fare Thee Well
I remember one evening it was pouring rain

And in my heart I felt an aching pain
Fare Thee Well, my honey Fare Thee Well
Muddy river runs muddy and wild
You can't care for the bloody
For my unborn child
Fare Thee Well, my honey Fare thee well

Just as sure as the birds fly high above
Life ain't worth living without the one you love
Fare thee well, my honey
Fare thee well
