Thread Name: ADD: Silver Coin (Hiscock)(from Archie Fisher)
Subject: Lyr Add: SILVER COIN^^
Joe, you're right, it is called 'Silver Coin', sung by Archie Fisher on 'Sunsets I've Galloped Into' which should be available as a CD. (Not quite sure, though!)

(Terry Hiscock)

Now that I'm older, though I'm not old enough to know
What it is to be lonely, what it is to be without a home
I've a friend nearby who loves me rain or shine
Don't ask me why
But her younger eyes are so much older eyes than mine

I thought I was well-read, wouldn't have to ask her for a lead
Till I read what her eyes said, then I knew there was nothing more to read
Nothing more to do and nothing more to say
But give all my words away
To someone who needs them who can't find a girl like you

And I ran all the way here to be the first to see the morning star
There were others before me for the sounds of beauty travel far
I hear it loud and clear and it rings like the silver coin
Thrown down on stone
Though I'm lost in the crowd I know you're around me somehow
