GUEST,m Lyr Req: Back Home (Bert Jansch) (13) RE: Lyr Req: BACK HOME (Bert Jansch) 13 Oct 04

Hi, I have an official lyrics printed at the back of the poster of 'When The Circus Comes To Town' which was available by request
just after the issue of the CD. It shows as follows;

Back Home

I got a wish, I got a a yearning to be home
I got a longing to be walking down the street
To see the chimmy-tops smoking on the skyline
Feel the cobble stones hard beneath my feet

If you could see the town where I was born
Stand on the High Street, you can look out to the sea
Or take a drink from a friendly corner ale-house
A more pleasant place you could never wish to be

Oh to hear the women sweetly talking
Ah sweet music singing gently in your ear
Ah to be back home

When you see the rolling hills 'cross the border
And the heather smells so sweetly in the air
You know that you can't be, (just) can't be anywhere
And you feel that magic shiver in your bones
You know you're home

I hope and pray, nothing's changed since I was there
Fond memories still linger in my mind
I know that town like a preacher knows his bible
And I got to thinking, I'm gonna leave this road behind

Really beautiful lyrics !
