The French Song

I have so much fun playing music with the locals in the surrounding area. The William Brothers show up at a number of these events and sing a number of great country tunes. When you play music in central Massachusetts it is inevitable that you will hear what is called "The French Song". This is about as French Canadian as you can get. I'm including the lyrics so you can sing along.




The French Song (in the key of G)

Quand le soleil dit bonjour aux montagnes,

Et que la nuit rencontre le jour.

Je sui seule avec mes reves sur la montagne,

Une voix me rapelle toujours.

Ecoute a ma porte les chansons du vent
,
M'rapelle les souvenirs de toi

Quand le soleil dit bonjour aux montagnes

Je suis seule, je ne veux penser qu'a toi


Now when the sun says good-day to the mountains

And the night says hello to the dawn

I'm alone with my dreams on the hilltop

And I can still hear his voice though he's gone

I hear from my door the love songs through the wind

It brings back sweet memories of you.

Quand le soleil dit bonjour aux montagnes

Je suis seule, je ne veux penser qu'a toi.
