PKD on Teesside Lyr Req: Terror Time (Ewan MacColl) (11) Terror Time 22 Jul 99


I've been browsing the database & come across "THE TERROR TIME" by Ewan MacColl. This is from the radio ballads & is about winter (the terror time) as a gypsy.

My question is, I have an extra verse which is not in the database & which I cannot recall ever hearing anyone sing. I have known the song for 25 - 30 years & I THINK (you know how it is!) that I learned it from the original radio ballad. I know I haven't made the verse up!! Can anyone shed any light??

The verse is:

The snow will not thaw/And the stove will not draw/There's ice in the water churn/In the mud and snow you're sloshing/Trying to do your bit of washing/And the kindling will not burn.
