Today, we will introduce 7th track of the album.

She Don’t Love Me Anymore (Forty-Nine Song)

The next group of songs, there are two groups of songs and they are usually traveling songs, because you make up the songs as you go along. And these are referred to as Forty-Nine songs. And the Forty-Nine songs are usually sung after every gathering when it appears that the young people don’t want to end the good feeling of the gathering.

“How about a Forty-Nine?” someone yells.

That’s all it takes to get a Forty-Nine going. You find an old car or any car that’s out there in the parking lot and start using the hood as your drum, and people start singing, and the Forty-Nine begins. Sometimes the Forty-Nine can go on, four, five, six, seven hours into the morning. And what is the phrase Forty-Nine start? Actually the story goes of fifty warriors went off to war and Forty-Nine came back. So we do honor for the one that’s still missing, still not at home. This first one is called, “She Said She Don’t Love Me Anymore.”

verse Way Lo Lo Lo Lo Way Yah Yo
Way Lo Lo Way Lo Way Yah Yah
Way Lo Way Lo Lo Way Yah Yah
chorus Way Yah Way Yah Way Yah Way Yah Yah (repeat 2 times)
Way Yah Ah Way Yah Ah Yo

The first song has to do with a young man who his girlfriend kicked him out. And so he’s going around the community telling everybody that “she doesn’t love me anymore.” She said she doesn’t love me anymore and they sing “Why?” And he says, “well…”, well he doesn’t want to give the real reasons why she kicked him out. So, he makes up excuses. For instance, he’ll say, “well because I drink orange juice” and of course that’s a lie. As are all of the phrases that he uses. But here’s how the song goes…

chorus Way La La La La Way Yo Yo (repeat 2 times)
Way La La Way La Way Yo Yo
Way Yah Way Yah Way Yah Way Yah Yah (repeat 2 times)
Way Yah Ah Way Yah Ah Yo

She said she don’t love me anymore because I drink orange juice. I don’t care, I got another orange… Way Yah Ah Way Yah Ah Yo


She said she don’t love me anymore because I eat moose meat. I don’t care, I’ve got another moose… Way Yah Ah Way Yah Ah Yo


She said she don’t love me anymore because I go to casino. I don’t care, I’ve got another quarter… Way Yah Ah Way Yah Ah Yo

So, you can see that the man is making up all kinds of excuses. And that song can go for, jeez, almost for a couple hours if you can keep making up excuses and singing, now it can go on for a couple hours…
