GUEST,huw Eli Jenkins Prayer (& songs from under milk wood) (26) RE: Eli Jenkins Prayer (under milkwood) 24 Mar 08

Dylan And Caitlin

Oh Caitlin my love
Oh Caitlin my dear
When first I saw you
Knew you'd always be near
You were wild you were free
You could dance like the sea
Though the bar room was crowded
You sat next to me.
I remember your hair
The colour of gold
Eyes full of mischief
Daring and bold
Cait Macnamara
I straight away fell
Into your arms
And under your spell.

Let's wander the green hill
Then back home again
Go down to the tideline
And walk in the rain
I'll write in the boathouse
You'll dance by the sea
Apart we're in shackles
Can we ever be free?

Oh Dylan my love
Oh Dylan my dear
Your words are like honey
So sweet to my ears
With the voice of an angel
The thirst of a king
You are blessed with the words
That can make my heart sing
Take me back to the summer
Take me down to the shore
Take me to Laugharne
I can't take anymoe
The boy from Cwmdonkin
And his Galway sweetheart
Can't live together
And can't stay apart.

Oh Dylan my darling
Oh Caitlin be mine
Two star crossed lovers
Together entwined
The wizard with words
And a queen of the may
The boy from Cwmdonkin
The girl from the bay
Come back to our bed
There's a chill in the air
Two bodies need warming
Two souls need repair
The tide it is turning
Down on the sea
Dylan and Caitlin
Forever be free.

words and music
Huw Pudner and Chris Hastings
