lyrics

Eb Bb Cm
When I was young I wandered
Ab Eb
Strayed from where I should dwell
Ab Eb
Gave no care to my lodging
Ab Bb Cm
Broke many’s a heart as well
Ab Bb Eb
Broke many’s a heart as well

But I met a girl by the gardens
So clearly do I recall
And I could not bear the parting
From the fairest of them all
From the fairest of them all

Cm Eb
We all need a song to guide us
Ab Eb
Or who knows what we’ll become?
Eb/D Cm
We all need someone beside us
Ab Bb Cm
Play your harp and I’ll play my drum
Ab Bb Eb
Play your harp and I’ll play my drum

But in the sunset’s golden weaving
We all hear his weary call
And I could not bear the leaving
Of the fairest of them all
Of the fairest of them all

(Repeat chorus)

“Reminds me a lot of Fairport Convention [...] The playing and craft are exquisite.“ ~Jon Worley, Aid & Abet

For the most part, timeless [...] like a group of minstrels found electric guitars and wrote an album over the course of 500 years.
