Thread Name: Lyr Req: Geordie (from Sam Russell)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Sam Russell's Geordie
Roberto, I reckon you have done an excellent job of transcribing Russell's version. Like you, despite many listenings, I am unable to decipher the 'I'll ride away to ...' line in the second stanza - it sounds a bit like 'lone castle fair', but it could be anything. The only other places where I hear something different are:

St 1, L 1   'London's bridge'
St 1, L 4&6 'Lord, spare me'

St 7, L 1 'up through the street'
St 7, L 4&6 'worse'

St 8, L 4&6 'And he courted'

St 9, L 1    'I wish'

Regards, Stewie.
