Thread Name: Lyr Req: All of a Row (from Martin Carthy)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: All of a row / all in a row
The title brings to mind a simliar title of a song by Joe Walsh, saw him do it in Belfast some years back, Pretty Maids All In A Row.

Hi there, how are ya? It's been a long time.
Seems like we've come a long way.
My, but we learn so slow
and heroes they come and they go
and leave us behind as if we re's pposed to know why.
Why do we give up our hearts to the past?
And why must we grow up so fast?

And all you wishing well fools with your fortunes,
someone should send you a rose
with love from a friend. It's nice to hear from you again.
And the storybook comes to a close.
Gone are the ribbons and bows.
Things to remember, places to go,
pretty maids all in a row.
