Subject: RE: Lyr Req: John Renbourn- Ship of Fools
Masato, I don't think that's the song requested.

"Ship of Fools" (Renbourn/Tilston/Boyle/Roberts) uses the tune of "Flower of Magherally" and contains these lines:

A stranger craft I'd ne'er beheld
In picture books or fancy-o
Rainbow colours that befell
From stem to strn entrances me-o
The sweetest voices drew me on
I lack the will to tarry-o
Charmed aboard the ship of fools
Away the wind did carry-o

Sorry, I don't have more than this; it's all that's printed on the sleeve, and my turntable isn't hooked up.
