(Richard Thompson)

This house is dark and shattered
Luck has gone out the door
No daytime will shine
In this empty room no more

Bad news is all the wind can carry

I heard a sound one morning
About my mind had to weep
I heard a man dig my love's grave
The hole was dark the hole was deep

Bad news is all the wind can carry

Some people say she wandered
And that she had a price likewise
I'll cut their tongues and hang 'em high
They'll rot away with all their lies

Bad news is all the wind can carry

I'll steal a boat and rig her
On course I'll tie the wheel
I'll lay down to the stars
Until the bottom meets the keel

Bad news is all the wind can carry

recorded on Richard Thompson's first solo demo tape ca. late 1971
When it was proposed that this song should be included in a fan club
tape, Richard said "Over my dead body".
