Bm
Home is a long, long way away
From bow to stern she's 20 miles long Ten miles high and wide A beautiful swan in a silent sea No water to slow her down Sometimes it seems we're motionless Caught between time and space Other tiny star systems rush headlong by Stallions must win the race No earthly sound can penetrate This black and endless void Only thoughts and dreams of the unborn babes Where your body and fill your mind Every day down those quiet canyons Like a love that's for the stars And people that shop at the market place And the ship loads ever, ever on If ever we come to our promised land Gotta take the shuttle ground For the black swan never ever wants to rest Never stops to say goodbye

They call me Katie Cruel
Through the woods I go And through the boggy mire Straight way down the road 'Til I come to my heart's desire If I was where I would be Then I would be where I am not Here I am where I must be Where I would, I can not When I first came to town They brought me drinks plenty Now they've changed their tune Then bring me the bottles empty If I was where I would be Then I would be where I am not Here I am where I must be Where I would, I can not

Watch The Stars

<Trad>
Watch the stars, see how they roam Watch the stars, see how they roam The stars gonna roam At the setting of the sun Watch the stars, see how they roam Watch the wind, see how it blows Watch the wind, see how it blows The wind gonna blow At the setting of the sun Watch the wind, see how it blows Watch the moon, see how it glows Watch the moon, see how it glows The moon is gonna glow At the setting of the sun Watch the moon, see how it glows Watch the stars, see how they roam Watch the stars, see how they roam The stars gonna roam At the setting of the sun Watch the stars, see how they roam


The Old Triangle

<Dick Shannon>
Capo:
II
A hungry feeling came o'er me stealing And the mice they were squealing in my prison cell Oh, the old triangle goes jingle jangle Along the banks of the Royal Canal To begin the morning the screw was bawling "Get out of bed, clean out your cell" And the old triangle and jingle jangle All along the banks of the Royal Canal On a fine spring evening the lag was dreaming And seagulls wheeling high above the wall And the old triangle, it goes jingle jangle All along the banks of the Royal Canal Oh, the female prison, it's got seventy women And it's there that I would rather dwell And the old triangle goes jingle jangle All along the banks of the Royal Canal And a hungry feeling came o'er me stealing And the mice they were squealing in my prison cell Oh, the old triangle, it goes jingle jangle All along the banks of the Royal Canal
