Thread Name: ADD: Silver Coin (Hiscock)(from Archie Fisher)
Subject: 'Silver Coin'??
Dear anyone! This is a hard one.At a UK Youth Hostel(Tanners Hatch),I heard this song one evening whilst participating in a 'folk music round the fire-side all nighter'. Some of the words are below.I have been told by the guy singing it,it has been deleted from sale.He isn't about for me to get the full words and chords.Has anyone any clue to it's origins? Who did this lovely song? I was told the title is 'Silver Coin'.May be wrong,I do not know for sure. Well,it is up to you now,I suppose! Joe

Now that I'm older Now that I'm old enough to know, What it is to be lonesome. What it is to be without a home. I've a friend in mind,who loves me rain or shine. Don't ask me why... Her younger eyes are so much older eyes than mine.
