All the Pots are Brown


All the pots are brown
And the glaze is grey
I went for a walk
Up ole Warren's way
They's be brown and round
Like they were in the day
Mingiesota dreaming
Up ole Warren's way


I stopped into a store (stopped into a store)
I passed along the way (passed along the way)
I asked if he had any (asked if he had any)
Made with macrame (made with macrame)
He looked off into the distance (off into the distance)
A tear fell from his eye (a tear fell from his eye)
Oh, Mingiesota Dreaming
Up ole Warren's way


All the pots are brown (and the pots are brown)
And the glaze is grey (and the glaze is grey)
I went for a walk (I went for a walk)
Up ole Warren's way (up ole Warren's way)
They'd be brown and round (brown and round)
Like they were in the day (like they were in the day)
If I could only sell'em (if I could only sell'em)
I could eat today (I could eat today)

Oh, Mingiesota Dreaming (Mingiesota Dreaming)
Up ole Warren's way (Mingiesota Dreaming)
Up ole Warren's way (Mingiesota Dreaming)
Up ole Warren's way (Mingiesota Dreaming)
Up ole Warren's way (Mingiesota Dreaming)



Lyrics by John Britt
Parody to Mammas and the Pappas; "California Dreaming"

Michael Hunt sung this to me one day in a Penland pick up but I forgot the words ...so I made some up. Can anyone help me with the real words?

I had a McK Tenmoku mixed up once that everyone died for. It was in Jamison angama and I sold those pots likety split

Could never duplicate the effect again

Oh well

Karen Newgard has her own version of the same song: "All the pots are brown, and the glaze is green." The song ends with something like: "What would Soji say?" She's the one to ask.

I will ask her.
