The Magpie 03:58
Ship of Dreams Ch Go out to your ship of dreams Time to leave the shore Row out to your ship of dreams Don't stand there waiting for your ship of dreams for ever more If you have a song, A song you'd like to sing. Just step right up and share it with the world There's music in your dreams And soul in every note and every word. If there is a soul, Someone in your world Do they know how much they mean and how you feel Why hide behind your fear You'll often lose a soul that's never told If there is a place, A place within your heart A place that brings some meaning to your world Start making travel plans And the journey will be just as great a part [This verse doesn't appear on the record, but was written as part of the song] ]We know life is hard, We all have mouths to feed There's always work, there's never time it seems Forget the weekly draw Turn from your TV, to your ship of dreams You may find your ship of dreams, In your heart and in your soul In your own distant horizon that's inside Leave the fools gold - Only your ship can- reach your rainbow's end.
In the Dawn 03:53
In the Dawn The softness of your skin The cool morning whispers And the touch in your voice As slowly we waken, in the grey of the morning In the dawn My hands do the talking As a bird starts its singing Fingers do the walking So gently stroking, feeling together In the dawn Your eyes they are saying What my heart it is thinking And your lips are so soft As together embracing, making love in the morning In the dawn.
Lowlands 04:17
Of all the trades in England, The beggin is the best, For when a beggar's tired, He can lay him down and rest. Ch And a beggin I will go, And a beggin I will go. I've a pocket for me oatmeal, And another for my salt. I've a pair of little crutches, You should see how I can halt. There's patches on me fusticoat, And a black patch on me eye. But when it comes to t'penny ale, I can see as well as thee. My breaches they are nought but holes, But me heart is free of care. As long as I've me belly full, My backside can go bare. I've been deaf at Duckinfield, And I've been blind at Shaw, But many's the right and willin lass I've bedded in the straw. There's a bed for me where e're I lie, And I don't pay no rent, I've got no noisy looms to mind, And I am right content. I can rest when I am tired, And I heed no masters bell. You men would be mad to be a king, When beggars live so well.
The Road is Long (full version including unrecorded verses) At first the journey’s just begun And the road is long At first the journey’s just begun, There’s all the road still to be run. And the road is long and the way is winding [verse not recorded for the album] A nervous step and on your way There’s time in hand to make your play Now you journey on your own It’s time to play your solo tune And then you find there’s room for two Someone chose to be with you Next comes a band to fill the stage It’s time to write another page Your group is where you put your soul There’s never enough to fill the bowl [verse not recorded on the album] Then travellers leave to play their song The towns are smaller once again And maybe then a one man show The open road has miles to go A chance meet as you’re on your way Gives new life to your tired old play When the journey’s nearly done The road behind rolls far and long So now your journey’s at the end There’s no more time to make, or to spend
