Thread Name: Easter Lillies (Ralph McTell)
Subject: RE: Easter Lillies (McTell)
Sooz, he did it the last time he was at the TAC (when he played two-and-a-half hours with no interval! That's value!). I'm sure you were there. He did give the story behind the song but I can't remember it all - I think it's a Norwegian poem originally, which he adapted to make a song. Don't quote me on that, I could very easily have it wrong.
I've been trying to learn it ever since I bought Red Sky when it first came out a couple of years ago, but there are far too many words! I pick it up and put it down. Duh!
