Thread Name: Lyr Req: Rome she casts her shadow - oak-ash-thorn
Subject: Lyr Req: Rome she casts her shadow,
I'm looking for the lyrics and melody to a song. Someone posted part of the lyrics on a group that I'm in, and it interested me. She said that she learned it as Oak and Ash and Thorn - only it isn't Kipling. The lyrics that she posted were the following:

"Rome she casts her shadow, her twilight on the land.
But maybe we can find a way to learn to understand.
What makes Britons, Britons. What ties you to Rome?

She first heard it about 25 years ago, she said, but doesn't know the author or any info about it. Any ideas?
