Travis Edmonson Songs Q - R




RASPBERRIES, STRAWBERRIES

Not just a favorite of his audiences, but of Travis Edmonson himself, no other interpretation of the “bawdy French student's drinking  song” can quite match his, nor  the way he gives such finality to the word “dust.”


RAYITO DE LUNA
See Lyrics  and translation at end of page

Travis Edmonson infuses an enticing  combination of rhythm and romance  into this wonderful Mexican bolero, a talent which has enabled him to pied piper countless folk fans over to Latin music.  The song tells how a man's lady love gives a glow to his sad life, which
is like moonlight in the darkness.


ROLLIN' HOME

Travis Edmonson recorded this composition of his own when with The Gateway Singers who, as can  be noted from the jazz-oriented clip, never allowed themselves to be pigeon-holed into any specific style.  A sea song with a Caribbean flavor, this is a thoroughly charming performance.


RUN COME SEE JERUSALEM

A story song about a sea tragedy involving women and children lost in the Caribbean in 1929, emphasizing the need to pray for salvation, this Gateway Singers track features Travis Edmonson (and Jerry Walter) with a unique delivery to relate the details of the disaster.



RAYITO DE LUNA

Spanish
Literal English

Como un rayito de luna

Like a ray of moonlight
Just like the moon's rays in the dim skies
entre la selva dormida,

Through the sleeping jungle
bringing calm to a night's madness
así la luz de tus ojos
The light of your eyes
The radiant flame  of your eyes has
ha iluminado mi pobre vida.

Has lit up my sad life
brought light into my life's dark sadness
Tú diste luz al sendero

You gave light
You brought a glow into the dark night
en mi noche sin fortuna

to my terrible nights
to my hours of pain and sorrow
iluminando mi cielo
Lighting my sky
transforming my world with your sweet light

como un rayito de luna.

like a clear ray of moonlight
as bright as sunlight, a new tomorrow
Rayito de luna blanca

Ray of white moonlight
The  moonlight in your soft eyes
que ilumina mi camino,
You light up my path
lights my way through nights and dark days

así es tu amor en mi vida

It's like your love in my life
with me always like gentle moonrise
la verdad en mi destino.

The truth and my destiny
my destiny lies in your gaze
Tú diste luz al sendero
You gave light
to my hours of pain and sorrow

en mi noche sin fortuna

to my terrible nights
to my hours of pain and sorrow
iluminando mi cielo
Lighting my sky
transforming my world with your sweet light

como un rayito de luna.
like a clear ray of moonlight
as bright as sunlight, a new tomorrow
