Bardic Circle Featuring Karl Franzen with Sharon Knight...

The Wheelright
(by Karl Franzen)

Audience Count: 11,131

The Story...

The song is an archtypical story, set in fantasy land, where money has no meaning. It tells of a young woman who needs a flat tire changed on her car late one night. Will the hulk of a man she comes across be friend or foe? "The Wheelright" is one of the many fine selections on our newly released CD, "For Earth and Her People", which is being revived by Flowinglass Music Publishing.

This CD was originally recorded in 1986, and was created largely as a gift item to fellow friends and pagans. It is a innocent, sentimental collection, containing a great deal of emotional power. It was created from the heart, and for those wishing to cultivate pure, well meaning intention, I recommend its listening.

Recorded: 1986 at Crispy's Lounge, Marlborough, MA.

Guests/Players: Karl Franzen: Vocals, guitar, pennywhistle.
Sharon Knight: Vocals, Guitar, xylophone

Technical Notes: Two voices: a baritone and a soprano.
Two guitars: both six string.
One pennywhistle.
A simple analog multi-track recording

Artist Profile: Sharon plays in the group Pandemonaeon.
Karl plays in the group Broceliande.
Both are based in the San Francisco Bay area.

The Wheelright
(words & music by Karl Franzen)

There was a man in Templeton who built the wooden wheel.
He carved them out of oak and ashand bound them down in steel.
His arms were like the sea and stone, his eyes were like the sky.
His hammer blows were like a ravens cry.

She rode in on a steed of cloudsand eagle feathers, downy white.
Her breath it mingled with the darkness of a moonlit winter night.
Forced to carry but few thingsher carriage being in disrepair.
She saw the wagon wheel maker there.

Sir, I do not know your name athough I see it written there:
upon the arm of oaken girth the tatto of a wheel you bear.
I ned your service to make right my carraige e're the sun shall rise.
Bring with you a wheel of this size?

The town dissolved in distant night the brightness of a star.
The lady and the wheelright pinned the iron bar.
Her carriage being in good repair she bid the man adieu...
but before she left, a jewel to him she threw.

Take back your jewel, my gentle girl, but share with me this mead:
for I have vowed to take no payment from a friend in need.
The world is now a better placefor both of us to sleep.
Go in peaceand from all trouble keep.
Go in peaceand from all trouble keep.
