This can seem like a maudlin song but it's meant to be sung at the end of the night in the expectation of singing it again in a few more nights...

(This vid is good too, reminds me of my little girls...)

When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy,
And the dimpling stream runs laughing by;
When the air does laugh with our merry wit,
And the green hill laughs with the noise of it;

when the meadows laugh with lively green,
And the grasshopper laughs in the merry scene,
When Mary and Susan and Emily
With their sweet round mouths sing 'Ha, ha he!'

When the painted birds laugh in the shade,
Where our table with cherries and nuts is spread:
Come live, and be merry, and join with me,
To sing the sweet chorus of 'Ha, ha, he!'

(William Blake)

Storm - Victory
Howlin Wolf - right up there with the greatest ever.
It is said the when Sam Phillips, founder of Sun Studios, was asked who was the best ever star he recorded, he din't hesitate - Howlin Wolf. Keep in mind he also recorded Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, B B King, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash etc etc. Sitting in Sun Studios on a trip toMemphis was my trip greatest highlight.
