Greenbeer One Clear Voice Singing/Early Fields-Jean Ritchie (47) ADD: One Clear Voice Singing - Jean Ritchie 29 Jul 02


.... well it turns out AnnaLee has remembered them...! lol
but she could use some confirmation if any one can supply it!
thanks to all,
greenbeer.

Here they are:

as i walked over the early fields
i heard a song a bornin'
it fell around me like the rain
that washes off the morning

oh i love the pipe and i love the drum
i love the wild harp ringing
but there's none on earth can e'er match the sound
of one clear voice
singing

it filled the wood it filled the sky
it filled the fields around me
so far away no one er could i see
and yet the song it found me

so far away the words were dim
but e'er i knew their gladness
i knew their peace i knew their pain
i knew their joy and sadness

oh i love the pipe and i love the drum
i love the wild harp ringing
but there's none on earth can e'er match the sound
of one clear voice
singing

and so i walk the fields alone
while evening shadows linger
but a better journey have i had
in searching for the singer

oh i love the pipe and i love the drum
i love the wild harp ringing
but there's none on earth can e'er match the sound
of one clear voice
singing
