Ballads Barbara Allan
Robin Hood and the Three Squires Modern...ish Or not so gross... Ear worms... Gross? Think of a popular song or jingle that you can't quite get out of your head. Write the lyrics down and then discuss with your shoulder partner why this song is so memorable. Is it the rhyme scheme? Rhythm? The lyrics themselves? Art Form How the Ballad Survives From time to time, you've probably been infected by an "earworm"-- a song that gets stuck in your head and plays over and over and OVER until you want to scream.
Although annoying, earworms illustrate what a potent combination rhyme, melody, and lyric can be-- something that no doubt helped ensure the survival of ballads over the centuries. Popular in England & Scotland during the medieval period Especially among the common people--many of whom could not read or write Ballads
Stories Told in Song (Folk Music) Most Follow These Conventions:

1. Tragic or sensational subject

2. Simple plot and/or single incident

3. Mostly dialogue 4 line Stanzas- Quatrains Rhyming 2nd & 4th Lines
(sometimes slant-rhyme) Repetition of words, ideas, & phrases... How to Read a Ballad 1. Go through it all the way once

2.Paraphrase each stanza the 2nd time through

3.Say aloud to better understand the rhythm Barbara Allan "Faithfully"

Highway run
Into the midnight sun
Wheels go round and round
You're on my mind

Restless hearts
Sleep alone tonight
Sending all my love
Along the wire

They say that the road
Ain't no place to start a family
Right down the line
It's been you and me

And lovin' a music man
Ain't always what it's supposed to be
Oh, girl, you stand by me
I'm forever yours

Circus life
Under the big top world
We all need the clowns
To make us smile

Through space and time
Always another show
Wondering where I am
Lost without you

And being apart
Ain't easy on this love affair
Two strangers learn to fall in love again
I get the joy of rediscovering you

Oh, girl,
You stand by me
I'm forever yours

Whooa, oh-oh-ooh
Whooa, oh-oh-ooh, oh
Whooa, oh-oh-oh, oh-whoooooa-oh
I'm still yours

I'm forever yours
Ever yours
